The Piano Project

Bose Professional hits the right notes with a subliminal sound experience at The Piano Project, Indore




Quickly rising up the ranks as one of India’s best places to live in, the city of Indore has it all – a strong sense of community, impressive infrastructure, and indeed a bustling nightlife, which in recent times has received quite the shot-in-the-arm with the launch of a bespoke entertainment and leisure dining destination called The Piano Project.

Located in the upbeat Vijay Nagar area of the city, The Piano Project is a unique roof-top venue that’s a hybrid creature in itself. Part performance space, part living room, part dining galore, and part saloon - The Piano Project features a plush floor expanse that houses dedicated indoor and outdoor sections complete with a stretch bar, relaxed seating, an obviously enchanting décor, and of course true to its name ... a live grand piano. The bar serves up a slew of house-favourite drinks, which complements the exhaustive menu of delectable knick-knacks and full-course meals to sheer perfection. A live pianist performs much to the delight of the crowd, who usually chime in their support with joyous hums and sing-alongs as they listen, drink and socialize.

Boney Kakwani – creator of The Piano Project, delves into the essence of the venue as he comments “We aimed to create a space that emphasizes music – an intimate space for emerging musicians to perform. In a city with relatively little mainstream exposure to live music, we envisioned The Piano Project as a venue that would play a key role in introducing new artists and fostering a new listenership, while of course, catering a certain amount of emphasis to the mass appeal as well. Our goal was, is and always will be to see our customers coming in for the music first, and then the restaurant.” Live music in-tow, the venue also offers patrons the opportunity to enjoy upbeat electronic music, particularly when the sun sets, as a part of the venue transforms into a nightlife haven of sorts.

The Piano Project features an amalgam of top-quality high-performance products which include the likes of the critically acclaimed RoomMatchUtility (RMU) series, the dexterous FreeSpace series, and the global favourite Panaray series


An apparent emphasis on music entails its evident dependence on pristine quality audio reproduction – and this fact was more than common knowledge to Mr. Kakwani, who insisted that The Piano Project be outfitted with an all-encompassing and comprehensive audio architecture from Bose Professional to ensure that his patrons enjoy a truly subliminal sound experience.

Says Mr. Kakwani, “When you think of great quality sound, you think of Bose. So, when Vinayak and his team at Audiocratz pitched us a comprehensive solution from Bose, we were hooked. We needed an audio solution that would provide us with uncompromised quality yet adhere to the volume-level requirements of each individual section of the venue; and the eventual system that has been designed and installed at the venue meets our expectations to perfection. The outdoor terrace sounds just as amazing as the indoor dining section, despite the fact that the music focus at each of these spaces is different. I guess that’s pretty much a testimony to Bose’ expertise in providing unmatched sound performance!”

Vibhor Khanna – Country Manager SAARC, Bose Professional


Designed and integrated by Audiocratz Sound & Light Solutions with key support from Bose Professional India, the audio architecture at The Piano Project features an amalgam of top-quality high-performance products which include the likes of the critically acclaimed RoomMatchUtility (RMU) series, the dexterous FreeSpace series, and the global favourite Panaray series. The focus here, according to Vinayak Luthra – director of Audiocratz Sound & Light Solutions – was to emphasize uniform coverage of Bose Professional’s signature crystal clear sound experience across the entire venue while maintaining enough headroom to enable the system to go louder when required, without having to compromise on quality.

Vinayak comments, “With the venue promoting a vast range of music – both live and playback – we realized that the system at The Piano Project needed to be extremely versatile yet powerful and high on quality.” Working on this mandate, the team devised a solution which comprised multiple numbers of the RMU208 loudspeakers along with the MB210 subwoofers being deployed as the main system at the bar area, which by far is the busiest section at the venue and usually demands higher energy levels. The VIP section features multiple numbers of RMU105 loudspeakers and MB210 subwoofers strategically placed across the section to maximize impact and listening pleasure. The area adjacent to the in-house liquor store has been integrated with multiple numbers of FreeSpace DS40SE loudspeakers, while multiple numbers of the FreeSpace DS16F in-ceiling speakers have been deployed at common sections like the reception area and the lift lobby. The outdoor terrace section, which hosts a completely unique music vibe that’s mostly independent of the indoor section, features the use of Bose Professional’s acclaimed Panaray 802-IV loudspeakers. The entire loudspeaker system is powered through an astute amplification solution comprising the use of multiple numbers of PM8500 configurable digital amplifiers from Bose Professional’s revered PowerMatch series, with system control and processing achieved through the efficient ControlSpace ESP880 engineered sound processor. The team have also installed the CC-16 zone controller device at two dedicated locations at the venue which affords instant control over the audio characteristics at each individual section.

Diving into details of the system, Vinayak shares, “We worked closely with the venue’s team of architects and with the team at Bose Professional in understanding the ideal locations to place the loudspeakers such that the system delivers optimum performance and also maintains the aesthetic appeal of the place. The indoor section posed a challenge with the height of the ceiling and the overall dimension of the space, which was furthered by the individual sections that were housed inside it; while the outdoor section posed a similar challenge but with a greater emphasis on the uniform dispersion of sound. These challenges were dealt with efficiently and effectively by choosing products from the RoomMatchUtility series, FreeSpace series and Panaray series, which helped us ensure that we maintain Bose’ world-renowned sound signature across the entire venue, while adhering to the volume requirements of each individual section. Plus, the PowerMatch series amplifiers ensures that the system is able to generate enough power and impact whenever the need arises, while the ControlSpace engineered sound processor maintains optimum performance of the loudspeaker system coupled with unmatched safety benefits. Needless to say, the entire management at The Piano Project is extremely pleased with the performance of the system, and for us, that’s the ultimate sign of a job well-done!”

Vibhor Khanna – Country Manager SAARC, Bose Professional – expresses his elation at the brand’s association with The Piano Project, as he exclaims, “The atmosphere at The Piano Project is always electric and there’s an undeniable chemistry between the enchanting music experience and subliminal soundscape that engulfs the venue. It is an absolute pleasure for Bose Professional to be recognized as the preferred brand partner to reinforce an ingenious venue like The Piano Project which is at the forefront of shaping the music and nightlife scene in Indore. Our partners at Audiocratz Sound & Light Solutions have done a fantastic job indeed, and we couldn’t be happier to hear of the raving reviews that venue has garnered for the superlative music experience it has consistently offered. We congratulate the entire management on being showered with the kind main-stream success and appreciation that they most definitely deserve!”
