Saptak Chattopadhyay (August 2016-17)

Before SACAC, I was a classical vocalist, with just a little knowledge about what sound is, how it works, its technicalities and the various parameters which makes it better or worse as perceived by a listener. SACAC really gave me a fresh view, a fresh sonic perspective on everything I heard, sang and created. I was thinking, trying to explore, critiquing my work, and collaborating a lot more.

A lot of untapped potential in me was being used, thanks to the methods of pedagogy that the faculty members apply. They not only help us explore ourselves and our talents better but also how we can learn from each other in the most effective and efficient way. Taking the best of whatever we hear, and tweaking that to make it our signature.

SACAC has instilled a sense of confidence in me. Everything I do now feels a lot easier in terms of workflow and it feels like I'm more in control of what I'm thinking about and creating.

I am a professional classical vocalist, pop and rock singer, producer and composer now, actively composing jingles for companies and NGOs, collaborating with various artists from diverse genres. I released my debut album a few months back.
