Pioneer of experimental music who became a leader in avant-garde piano music and laid the foundation for some of the 20th century's most radical music.
He was among the first to perform works by Pierre Boulez, Morton Feldman, Earle Brown, and La Monte Young.
He founded India's first electronic music studio in 1969. It was located in Ahmedabad's National Institute of Design.
He was incredibly private and secretive, rarely speaking of his family. When this was mentioned to his older sister Joy Nemiroff by one of his acquaintances, she said, "Remember, I grew up with him," with great amusement.
He premiered John Cage's 4'33" as well as many other Cage originals.
