Texas-based, Ganesh Rao is a multi-faceted artist who works passionately with several visual and digital mediums. His strongest asset is his artistic intuition and the ability to blend that with the knowledge earned from a formal education in engineering. He is currently directing a music video for the British progressive metal band – TesseracT.
Ganesh is also working on his debut music-video album titled The Forbidden Circle (2012), which will feature a combination of his music and video making skills to result in a 30 minute audio-visual experience. Ganesh mixes and masters albums in his home studio, composes background scores and designs sounds for short films. Here are a few stills of another video he created called Empyrean:
