The music composer AR Rahman was recently interviewed by ace violinist Dr L Subramaniam. The interview was posted on the YouTube channel of the award-winning composer. When the Iconic composer AR Rahman was asked about how he recorded his songs. He said "I came into music during the transitional period of technology that helped him and gave him a lot of time to experiment and fail". He said "nobody knew my failures they only know my success. As the failures were within the studio and we come back again and try again. I got that freedom from stereo music. There was no need for validation but there was time, freedom and peace and that made me question why I can't do one mix for movie and another for CD". AR Rahman said "it was a passion that drove me and I have always questioned if we listen to their (Hollywood) music why can they listen to our music. This is the question (in my mind) I was always asking why?. Why we can't get better production better quality, and better distribution? Better mastering and that is what still drives me."
AR Rahman then said “sometimes I see our movies go till the Oscar but don’t get it. Wrong movies had been sent for Oscars and I was like don’t!!! We have to be in other person's shoes to know what is happening here and I have to be in my shoes to see what they are doing". The comment from AR Rahman about the Oscar has been going viral as people relate it to India’s recent win at the Academy Awards. India brought back two Oscar awards from the ceremony for Best Documentary Short Film and Best Original Song.
