MEET A 17-YEAR-OLD SINGER/SONGWRITER RUDY MUKTA
Rudy Mukta is a 17-year-old singer/songwriter from Bangalore. She has been training in Carnatic vocals for 12-13 years now. She taught herself western vocals as well as the guitar and the ukulele.
She released her debut EP “Entropy” all of which has been written, arranged, produced, mixed, and mastered by her on Garageband, with no professional equipment. Her inspiration comes from artists such as Tyler the Creator, Daniel Caesar, Jacob Collier, Billie Eilish, Lana Del Rey and rap/hip hop music.
Here is Rudy Mukta in a conversation with GOGO Magazine.
1) When did your journey as a musician begin?
I’ve been into music my entire life since I’ve been learning Carnatic vocals for about 13 years now, but I only got into the indie music scene in May.
2) Which was your first song?
The first song that i ever released was “Funny”
3) How much has social network helped you in creating your audience?
At least 90% of my audience comes from my social network, I wouldn’t be where I am without the unconditional support from my wonderful followers.
4) How do you manage investment for your music productions?
As of now, I haven’t had to invest in anything for my music production since I’ve made my music myself or in collaboration with other producers. I produced my EP entropy on my own with my best friend’s iPad, using GarageBand and an earphone mic.
5) Who has been your inspiration?
my music isn’t necessarily inspired by any artist, it comes from within. but some people who do inspire me to keep grinding and pushing myself are Tyler the creator, Daniel Cesar, Jacob Collier, Lana del Rey, Frank Ocean, etc.
6) Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?
I see myself doing what I love, and being independent and happy in 10 years. it may not necessarily be doing music, although I really hope it is. I tend to not keep any expectations for myself that far ahead in the future because I take life one day at a time.
7) Tell us about your latest track.
My latest track is called “we’ll die anyway”, and was produced by Rae Stones aka Aryaman Valdiya. So my best friend came to sleep over with me this once and we were sleeping on my terrace that night. the sky was super clear and we had just downloaded this app called “sky view” that tells you and lets you see the different constellations, stars, space stations, and all that fancy stuff.
We were looking at all that and absolutely geeking out on space things with another one of my very good friends on the phone. it really hit me then; we are so insignificant in this universe. the fact that people think they matter or what they do matters in comparison with the entire universe suddenly became so funny but also frustrating to me. So I wrote the song inspired by this.
8) Which is your most preferred genre?
While making music, I really don’t know what genre I fall into; maybe it leans a bit towards RnB but while listening to listen to RnB, rap/hip hop, metal, pop, honestly anything.
9) How was life in quarantine?
Although I wish I were doing shows and stuff during this period of time, I’m very grateful for the time I got because without this quarantine, I wouldn’t have released my ep or met the wonderful people that I met online throughout this time or gotten amazing opportunities to grow as an artist from the comfort of my home. honestly, life isn’t too different from what it was before the quarantine for me.
