A perfect amalgamation of varied instruments to electrify the senses

MUMBAI: Music Composer, Siddharth Kasyap, envisions a unique show called “Perfect Amalgamation” which brings instrumentalists into limelight like never before

Nine exotic tracks are being played on more than twenty-five instruments each glorifying exquisite elements of rhythm and melody. Siddharth Kasyap has managed to seamlessly weave together compositions that bring together varied & unique instruments all together into a single concert. ‘Perfect Amalgamation’ is a show that attempts to do what few have done before - creating contemporary fusion instrumental compositions on a thundering scale.

This show will be held at the Royal Opera House, Mumbai on February 27th, 2020 and is expected to be a spectacular audio-visual treat infused with a perfect blend of stunning LED graphics, electrifying lights, and captivating sounds.

Kasyap, who believes in creating a melodious riot of music with beautiful compositions, talks about the process of building a music piece featuring only instrumentalists. ‘I had a few musical sittings with each one of them and got them familiar with my compositions in bits and pieces and then with the help of Atul Raninga, who also orchestrated the entire show, assorted all these pieces and made it into concrete compositions. After that, it took us 10-12 days of hard practice to set every track and then we recorded which took us 7-8 days."

Atul Raninga, the contemporary Jazz Piano player who has worked on films like 3 Idiots, PK & Sanju said;” I have been working with Siddharth for the past 25 years, I worked on ‘The Magic flute’ with him and that’s when we decided to do a show with instruments only. We selected the best compositions and rearranged them to fit into the fusion concert. We wanted to highlight one instrument for every piece so that the audience can have an understanding of the instrument.”

Atul further explained how the LED screen backdrop was used to sync the instruments. ‘We measure music in bars, we don't measure in seconds, we count the bars. So, it was easy to bring in animation that matched and that’s when the concept of the LED backdrop came from to sync with our music. I have been performing for the past 15 years and I haven't seen anything like this before where lights, graphics, and the instruments come together to create music.’

The show is being performed by a troop of acclaimed musicians like Atul Raninga, Ravi Chary, Jayanti Gosher, Girish Vishwa, Gautam Sharma, Aakashdeep Gogoi, Jitendra Thakur, Tejas Vinchurkar, Dilshad Khan, Chiranjit Sinha, Prabhat Raghuwanshi and Vinnie Hutton.
