Deepa Ganesh has been a student of music, a journalist and has been writing about music since a long time. She speaks about her initial experiences on writing about music and how writing on music theory were emphasized more than music appreciation. According to her, writing from and on the experience of music is more important than the geometries of it. 

She has met renowned musicians like Kishori Amonkar, Gangubai Hangal and studied both the families of music , Carnatic and Hindustani Classical music. She feels music can be divided through their temporal qualities rather than rigidities of external systems.
