Composer

Born: 2000

Biography

Sai Natarajan is a freelance composer and independent music producer based in New Zealand. Despite playing the piano since the age of six, the idea of telling stories through music didn't initially appeal to him. However, after beginning to experiment with composition at the age of eleven, he discovered that this was where his passions lay. He also picked up the violin during high school, leading him to play in the Manawatu Youth Orchestra and Manawatu Sinfonia for various concert programs. During this period, he developed a real passion for orchestral music and film scoring.

He started working as a freelance composer in 2016, and has since worked on a wide variety of projects. He has scored theme music for YouTubers, Twitch streamers, and various podcasts. He has created background music for commercials, and original soundtracks for children's audiobooks. In 2019, he began his studies in composition and film scoring at the New Zealand School of Music. In January 2020, he released his debut solo EP, "Neon Dream". Throughout 2020 and 2021, he worked on his first ever video game score ("Medievalien"). In late 2021, he also completed his first-ever orchestral concert work, "We Yearn to Tell Stories" (which was subsequently recorded by Orchestra Wellington and premiered by the Manawatu Youth Orchestra), before finishing off his Bachelor of Music.

In his spare time, Sai jams with his musician friends, takes mediocre photographs, and plays far too much Rocket League for his own good. He also weirdly enjoys referring to himself in the third person.
