All over India, there are talented artists who are doing the best they can to branch out but cant because of different reasons such as money, no required instruments, no contacts or their music is not commercial enough so soundspeaks is trying to be more than just a recording studio or a jam pad. since I could remember I wanted to work around music, and basically make a community of musicians who can work together and come up with new sounds , and bringing music to a new level. So after completing my Business Management degree from cambridge , I interned with NDTV goodtimes in the music department for 3 months and decided to do a 1 year course in audio engineering from SAE Singapore and started working on ‘soundspeaks’. music is the sound that can be heard by the universe. Music doesn't need to have a language, and it can bring people from all around the globe together and dance and sing and basically just be together, at least for a while, and this has always fascinated me and still does.

Limits, boundaries and specifications are not the words that come to mind when we speak of our sound engineer Sahil. From folk, to metal and background scores to jam sessions, you can always expect and ask for opinions and ideas popping out from the back of his head. Music is his weapon of choice when he plays/composes and records to save the day. Not many people know about his affinity towards metal but that never stopped him from making people groove on folk. Like our space, the number of things he can do with a sound wave are also infinite.
Aryaman’s current projects and expertise, focus on Experimental and Soundscape based Techno and Psychedelic music. However, he started his journey into music about 10 years ago, when he picked up drumming and was heavily influenced by the many decades of Funk, Rock, Blues, Jazz, Metal (the list is endless, really)… After playing the drums for 9 years, he started understanding music more in terms of the physics of sound, how synthesizers work and how sound affects the human body and mind.
He briefly went to schools like ‘The Sound Foundations’ and ‘ILM’ to learn basics in Electronic music and Audio Engineering. Aryaman completed his musical training from ‘Pyramind’ in San Francisco, California, where he learned Electronic music and Sound for Film and Games.
Working with the best in the industry he developed a diverse range of skills as a music producer and an engineer and uses Ableton Live for his first choice for arranging and sound design. He is also ‘Operator Certified’ by Avid in ProTools 11, is ‘User Certified’ by Apple in Logic Pro X and has worked on middleware softwares for Game design, such as Unity and FMOD.
Currently he has two music projects:
Aryaman is extremely motivated by new technologies and is always looking for new ways to improve and manipulate sound to do weird, unique and interesting things. He is a total gear-slut and loves playing with synthesizers, as well as making them using Reaktor or Max for Live.
