Thankful to technology

Puritans may beg to differ but singer-composer Shankar Mahadevan feels that the use of modern devices is a blessing in disguise for the music industry.

The Breathless hitmaker, who has to his credit many Bollywood chartbusters, says technology has made the art of composing, easier and sofisticated.

“All my music is technologically driven. We use a lot of technical plug-ins. I am very pro to such innovative usages. It is a boon for our industry,” says Mahadevan.

In today’s age certain softwares like Reason, Ableton Live, DJ mixtures & consoles and technical plug-ins have added sofistication to the process of composing music.

Mahadevan, who was in the capital city recently for his first webcert, insists digital concerts can take the concept of live performances to a different level.

“I am really happy with the way the future of music is shaping up. With such concepts, people can enjoy music in their drawing rooms without worrying about traffic,” added Mahadevan.
