Session type

Technical level


To bring life to sounds recorded in a home studio environment onto a big stage, combining electronic tracks with live instrumentation and vocals.


The Burning Deck is the solo project of Sandeep Madhavan. In April 2014 he released an album titled Kalinihta under the moniker of The Burning Deck and brought it to life on the big stage with seasoned sessions musicians.
A performance of The Burning Deck is an experience as the music takes you on a journey through two hours of life, longing and loss backed by ethereal keys, rumbling bass, slamming drums, graceful trumpets, feathery vocals and swirling visualisations.
