    Rahman to create an authentic Indian Orchestra

    By Staff
    A R Rahman
    A.R. Rahman, the greatest ever composer has done it all, with starting his own music recording and mixing studio to revolutionizing Indian music to greater heights. He made East meet West by bringing in Technology-based music to India and now, the great musician aims to start an authentic Indian orchestra. Rahman has put forward his first step and has established the KM Music Conservatory which will act as a bridge between music, technology and culture.

    A very spiritual guy by heart, Rahman opines, "I gave my conservatory the name of 'KM', as I feel that these initials will bring me luck and are spiritually bound". Ask him about the need of such an orchestra and the musician points out to the lack of technology in our country. "To create good orchestral music, we take nearly 2 months and this is one reason why music directors often fly abroad to record orchestral music where they finish their work in just 2-3 days and get back", argues Rahman.

    So what will the KM Music Conservatory bring to India? The musician says, "Here, the techno savvy sound engineers will learn the art of composing music and will learn to use instruments, while trained musicians will work on their technological skills and on the art of sound recording. All combined, we will create the Indian Orchestral Music".

    Speaking of the growth of orchestral music, Rahman quips, "Mark my words, orchestral music will be the future of film music". Being the founder and Principal of the conservatory, Rahman has organized an advisory panel comprising of learned veteran musicians, both Indian and Western. Rahman has been flooded with applications from people to join the conservatory ever since the announcement was made on his birthday.

    Talking about the place that will be the backbone of his dream project, Rahman says, "There is a calm, quiet and serene place in my mind which expands to nearly three to five acres. I plan to put up the campus there". Last but not the least, Rahman has decided to cut down on the number of films per year to two, as he says, "So I should be having lot of time to work on this project".
