rising star - part 2

Here is the second part of the interview with A.R.R. from 'The Hindu' and a song from his second movie "Pudhiya Mugam". A Passion for Quality Music S.R. Ashok Kummar

Despite your success, you do not seem to be working in a lot of films.

Rather than making money, I believe in making people happy; all other things are secondary. That is why I am not interested in a lot of movies but only in one at a time. I like directors whom I can vibe with. Ten years of experience in this field has made me quite frustrated. I have evolved a technique which requires a lot of time. Other music directors record a song in seven or eight hours. But I am different. We do a basic sitting and we record it. We record the voice and I add instrument by instrument to improve the quality.

Will not the producers say that you are delaying their projects?

My process involves a lot of time. The delay is not intentional. That is how I get my results. When people say that in "Gentleman" and "Thiruda Thiruda" the music is good and not like the usual beats, I feel happy. Abroad, in some places, they take three months to make an album. Pudhiya Mugam. His second release was "Pudhiya Mugam", and most of the songs seem to resemble his earlier songs in "Roja".
