“We look forward today in the music sessions from the age of unplugged instruments. Reality and the joy of hearing the original sounds of the string and ‘dholak’. The great masters and their goods like Sarod, clarinet, violin, sitar all lost and buried under the weight of modern sounds mastered and produced by science and technology. Everything disappeared and outweighed by technology” Amitabh Bachchan posted on his blog.
Amitabh Bachchan also posted”Gone are the days when recordings of songs from 100 to 150 musicians sat through days when the major studios, and played to perfection in one shot. A mistake by one resulting in the entire song you are recording again! Now the electronics take over. A small room, only 5 to 6, when a large machine that balances the sound, a microphone that is on the singer and the instrument at a time.
