Hola, I'm Prashant Pillai

Hola ! Iโ€™m Prashant Pillai

I compose music, write, host a podcast, build businesses online, and teach and mentor creators.

I've always been a rebel, and I crave the opportunity to do something different. Thinking outside of conventional norms has become second nature for me - it's my default-response!

In fact, that instinct is what fuels my curiosity; which in turn leads me into new areas or interest...places I didn't even know existed before.

So this very website should be the mecca for showcasing all my musical works, rather it is a place where you dive deep into my mind.

Learn and explore all the things iโ€™m interested in. ๐Ÿ‘‡

๐ŸŽง Making Music

โšก๏ธ At the core Iโ€™ve been a multi-passionate creator.

But itโ€™s music that took off first.

As a music composer, my music has appeared in award winning films like Jallikattu, Shaitan, Mukkabaaz. I frequently collaborate with filmmakers and friends Lijo Jose Pellissery, Bejoy Nambiar amongst others.

Some of the films Iโ€™ve worked on have been screened in film festivals around the world. One of them was considered for an Academy Award too.

My music for scores are raw, earthy, and organic. While I prefer my songs to be sombre with a nostalgic quality.
