I am an Indian Classical Flutist (Bansuri player). Have been playing for over 25 years. I specialize in Bamboo Flutes. I have performed at various stages and countries. I also have a home studio equipped with high quality gear and know-how to use them. I will do my best to provide what your composition needs and try to adhere to your requirements.
I am an experienced session musician and recording artist. I constantly do full-track recordings for composers/artists from all over the world in various genres.
I have a complete set of Pro quality Flutes which enables me to provide multi-track recordings using Base, Medium and High pitched flutes used in unison to create a thick layer of quality output.
I would indulge in doubling takes, layerings and Panned effects to make the sound more full. I record at 96khz 24 bit and I am well versed with tracking techniques like Gain Staging, Mic Positioning and maintaining a good overall recording quality.
Lastly, every project to me is an opportunity to make brilliant music, for someone somewhere will listen to it, and should feel refreshed after that.

Fast and great final product! Akshat was extremely easy to work with and gave very clear communication throughout. I highly recommend.
Akshat is an extremely talented musician who can create beautifully orchestrated layers that bring out the beauty of the flutes. He was really quick but also delivered high-quality work. He is thoroughly professional and has excellent communication skills, which made the entire project smooth sailing from start to finish. He combines soulful playing with great creative instinct and can take a raw track and make it shine with his music! I would love to work with him again in the future.
Interview with Akshat Mehrotra
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Composing and producing flute parts for tracks.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Indian Bamboo Flute or Bansuri has this amazing heart touching vibrato and the tonality of base flutes is very soothing. It also brings a touch of Indian Classical playing to the interludes or layers of Flute i would play on your track. Overall, its a very uplifting or contrasting effect on your track which can take the listener to a different world in between and then back to your track.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Once I receive a track or an idea from the composer/producer, I would then work on providing different flavors as samples. After an initial feedback as to what direction the composer wants me to go with, I would then work on entire composition or the intended parts of the composition. I would indulge in many layers of flute involving Base, Middle and Small pitched flutes. I would indulge in doubling takes, layerings and Panned effects to make the sound more full. I record at 96khz 24 bit and I am well versed with tracking techniques like Gain Staging, Mic Positioning and maintaining a good overall recording quality.
