Its been 4 months since I published my previous blog “from composer to music director.. a much needed transition” (https://abhisheksn.wordpress.com/2011/10/05/from-composer-to-music-director/).  I had explained in detail as to what were the root causes for me pitching in to music direction, in my previous blog. This blog is more or less an extension to the same, that I would be explaining my experiences working with this album.

First of all friends, I have decided to name the album as “NeraLaagi” (ನೆರಳಾಗಿ ) , which literally translates to “being like a shade” in english. To recollect, The album is being written, composed & directed by me, Abhishek S N. I have also sung a few songs in the album.

While I started this whole new experiment, I assumed it would become a small budget music album with some beautiful tunes. But now the story is quite different. The album has grown into a huge music album which demands some very good publicity and reach. The reason is simple, its because of the confidence I earned through out the project.

Neralaagi would have 7 different songs of different genres. In each song you get to hear some fresh sounds, fresh tunes, fresh vocals too. To break the secret , I would like to mention the genres of each of the 7 songs.
1. Romantic Melody Male Solo
2. Romantic Slow Melody Female Solo
3. Romantic Melody Peppy Duet
4. Satirical Tappangucchi Dance
5. Romantic Slow Melody Duet
6. Indian heavy metal Rock
7.Romantic Male Pathos

Each song has been made with the limited knowledge of music and lyrics, whatever I have. But as an audience when I listen to each of the song, I can just say that each song is lovable, different from each other, catchy and impressive.

  • You would listen to voices of Great singers like Sadhana Sargam, Aishwarya Majmudar from Bollywood & Avinash Chebbi, Surpriya Acharya, Shashank Sheshgiri from Sandalwood in this album.
  • Ofcourse you would listen to 3 songs in my voice too.
  • Some of the great bollywood instrument players like Ustad Dilshad Khan(Saarangi) , Saarang Kulkarni(Sarod), Darshan Doshi (Live Drums), Abhijith (Guitar), Abhilash (Rhythmist) have worked on my compositions in this album.
  • You would listen to different set of sounds and instruments in each song, ranging from saxaphone , saarangi to Sarod and sitars! all LIVE! (not programmed stuff 😉 )
  • Bollywood mixing engineers like Nadeem Ansari , Shakeel ahmed and other mixing engineers would work on the tracks.

Iam planning to release this album “differently” during June End. Ofcourse, Iam not very sure about dates because Music is, as of now part time passion of mine, while other passions like  photography, screenwriting also take some priority during my free time. Ofcourse Cisco has been my bread for life and butter for this music album 😉 ! Will keep you guys posted. Until then some TO DOs for you 😀 :

  • please have a look at the posters below
  • let me know any leads/ideas for producing the CD production and distribution part 😉  (email : abhishek.snabhi @ gmail.com )
  • ideas for distributing the digital media are also welcome (iTunes etc)
Last, but not the least, I would like to thank Swapnil Digde, who has been very supportive for the album, being a music arranger and programmer for this project.

Please let me know how are the (working)posters (designed by myself)!
