Biography

Seattle resident, Mohan,
has been playing electronic music since 1990.

Mohan was formed in 2005 in response to the success of the CD As Is Where Is.

The performance version of Mohan works off a computer laptop with a skeleton sequence in Ableton Live. Music then can be shaped in the moment on top and in and out of the sequence.

Mohan has downtempo and chill sets as well as ambient and dance sets. The audience energy helps to influence the sets we do.

The musical has its own flavor and is unique in that it incorporates a computer, synths, tablas, saxes, flutes and various ehtnic instruments.

Musically our intention is to support the dancer, movement artist and listener. It is really a coming together that we the musicians and the participants play off each other.

Lyrics

It Just Is

Written By: Mohan

Imagine all the sadness turned to dust
Swallowed by the sea and returned to us
Joy, silently waiting for you to be
For you to be
I close, I close my eyes, and I close my eyes
And let this day go by
I know, I know It Just Is, I know, I know It Just Is

Every moment is a chance of letting go
What is not in motion yet burns inside our soul.

I feel life I feel alive
I feel life I feel alive

Runnin’ runnin’, let me see you
Runnin’ runnin’, let me see you
Opening up wide spinning all around.

It Just Is

Running from resistance
Running from resistance
Runnin’, runnin’,
Let me see you, let me see you, let me see you
Leave your stuff behind
Runnin’, runnin’, ra runnin’
I know I know

Let me see you, let me see you
Let it all come out, let it all come out
Leave your stuff behind
Opening up wide spinning all around
It Just Is
Let this day go by.

In For The Ride

Written By: Mohan

Dive down deep
The current carries you
You’re moving with the rhythm
You’re in for a ride
You’re in for a ride
You’re in for a ride

Living for the future
Planning calculating
Figuring out what’s best
And you leave out all the rest

It’s so easy
It’s so easy
It’s so easy
It's so easy

Dive down deep
The current carries you
You’re moving with the rhythm
You’re in for a ride
You’re in for a ride
You’re in for a ride
