Avik Chari is a composer and sound designer obsessed with non-linear and interactive media. He embraces the use of space as a tool for musical structure and storytelling through his sound installations and electro-acoustic works. His latest works focus on ambience and space, and take a calm, meditative approach to rhythm, with pieces such as i’ll be there for you and memories. His music has been performed by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Transient Canvas, Eureka Ensemble, and the Boston Conservatory Choruses, and used in video games such as Covidopoly and Assemble This.
Chari studied at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee under Tina Tallon and Felipe Lara, where he was awarded the Roger Sessions Memorial award for composition. With a keen eye for notation and music engraving, he currently leads Liria Music Prep, a music preparation service, while working as an orchestral librarian at the Singapore Symphony. His main aspirations are to create a video game audio company, and finally create a soundtrack for his own life, all while converting his beautiful Minecraft home into a real one.
