Kunal started playing drums when he was seven. By college, he was proficient in all manner of drums, orchestral percussion, ethnic percussion, piano, synthesis, and trumpet. Throughout his college career at Boston University, Kunal also learned how to play guitar. This eventually lead to an understanding and admiration for flamenco and contemporary folk-percussive styles (indicative of such performers as Justin King or Michael Hedges). His curiosity and love of music have supported him throughout his life--eventually pushing him into composition world. Studying under American composer Samuel Headrick, Kunal acquired a concentration in composition and became the first music minor in Boston University history to take graduate-level composition courses.
While his style is extremely versatile and can adapt to almost any situation, Kunal specializes in film and video game scoring. Generally speaking, his style is organic and lends itself well to either a natural texture (orchestra or ethnic music) or a hybridized texture (natural instruments fused with electronic elements). He has done work for various rich-media formats (radio dramas, television PSA's, film, video game, trailers, ads, etc.) and projects in the domestic as well as international spheres. Kunal continues to cultivate his style and breadth of expression with every new project.
