Music director B Ajaneesh of Ulidavaru Kandanthe fame has shared his experience, working on the album of Akira and making use of Puneeth Rajkumar's voice for the song 'Kanna Sanneyindalene'.
Talking about the soundtrack to a leading daily, Ajaneesh has
said, "When the story of Akira was narrated to me, it was clear
that it's going to be stylish, both in its content as well as
making. Keeping that in mind, I made use of electronic music,
specifically trap, dubstep and glitch hop, in three of its six
songs, a first of sorts for a Kannada film. The fact that Bengaluru
appreciates such music was a deciding factor."
About the choice of opting for Puneeth Rajkumar's voice for one
of the songs, the musician has said it was his team, which
initially came up with the idea.
"When the team suggested that we use Puneeth sir's voice for
'Kanna Sanneyindalene', it struck me as a great idea. I love his
voice, which has a unique texture and is best suited for such
melodies. The song has elements of trap as well as local rhythms
and beats," he has said.
