CARNATIC RAGAS ON KEYBOARD PDF

ReddIt The Melekartha System is the most scientific system of creation and classification of ragas and forms the basic of the classical carnatic music system. It defines the rules to create the base ragas with 7 notes each using a combination of the 12 keys in an octave. Melakartha system uses a powerful scientific algorithm to create the fundamental 72 ragas of the carnatic music system. The derived ragas are called janya ragas.

ReddIt The Melekartha System is the most scientific system of creation and classification of ragas and forms the basic of the classical carnatic music system. It defines the rules to create the base ragas with 7 notes each using a combination of the 12 keys in an octave.

Melakartha system uses a powerful scientific algorithm to create the fundamental 72 ragas of the carnatic music system. The derived ragas are called janya ragas.

Introduction to 7 Swaras or Notes in Carnatic Music In the Melakartha system we divide the 12 keys of an octave in the keyboard into 7 swaras as follows: 1. The reason for this lies in the Melakartha algorithm. Melakarta Algorithm — maps 12 keys of octave to 7 swaras of a raga The Melakartha algorithm is as follows: A Melakartha Raga has all the 7 swaras in it.

A Melakartha Raga cannot have multiple entries for the same swara. For instance you cannot have both N1 and N2 in the same raga as they both are Nishadas. Based on the above algorithm we can form the Melakartha ragas as follows.

Sa and Pa are the same in all ragas as they have only one entry. Ma has two entries so we can form two ragas for every given combination of all other swaras i. Hence, considering the fact that frequency of Ga has to be always greater than Ri i. Thus using the Melakartha algorithm we can create 72 Melakartha ragas.

Introduction to Melakartha Raga System in Carnatic Music

Keyboards, Synthesizers and Carnatic Music Traditionally, keyboard intruments have not been suited to Carnatic music. This latter group of instruments were perfect for music which involved no subtle variations on the notes and there are only a maximum of twelve notes in an octave ie. Futhermore, the notes on most modern keyboards are tuned to the system of equal temperament, whereby the octave or sthAyi is divided into twelve equal intervals or semi-tones not to the system of pure temperament or just intonation where the notes take the true frequencies according to geometrical laws like the cycle of fifths. Carnatic music, with an estimated 22 sruthis or notes in an octave, uses the pure temperament as its base, and adds extra values where required by the particular rAga eg. All this does not leave the humble keyboard in a happy state as not only are the notes straight and cannot be warped to glide on to the next note or to shake, but the whole system of tuning of a keyboard is not suited to Carnatic music. Of course, to an untrained ear, it is possible to get away with playing using a the equal temperament tuning system but even then, only some ragas will suit. In order to imitate the gamakas, the artiste has to play adjacent notes rapidly.
