A.R.Rahman & Dido- If I Rise -Song

  1. R-A-J says:

    Amazing song this one is. I was rooting for this to win the oscars but guess nobody got the magic in this outstanding attempt. I liked this for the fact that more than a song, this is an experiment with sounds. If u listen carefully, you’ll see that Rahman carefully fused together “sounds” to give this inspiring piece. The other nominated songs were just that – “songs”, all good in their own right but this was a brilliant and clever attempt at just mixing sounds, and it just simply works. Somethin similar from Rahman’s brilliance is his song, Rasathi, in the movie Thiruda Thiruda, where the entire song was made without any instruments. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOQpd5Hwgs4)

    Another great work from the Rahman :)

  2. Thanks Raj. I do agree Rehman has that simplistic yet deep soulful touch. Just the instruments in thsi song from 127 hrs is melodious without taking over your senses. jsut subtle and enduring to leave an impression. I am disappointed he did not win. i also noticed that as a musician he has matured a lot from those Bombay days and is going for the subtler, soulful music.
    Did a quick scan of your pages. Interesting & funny write-ups :) (although your blog page title is weird!!)
    Happy writing!
