I’m stoked as hell We’ve been to a lot of dope places in the past few years and it’s unbelievable to me that we have fans in places across the world that like our music enough to want to come see us live I think these shows are gonna be lit Can you talk to us about your third studio album, NLND? What's the story behind it? Well with our most recent EP The Most Hated, we tried doing more of a hip hop/rap beat type of thing and mixed that style with our own, and ended up keeping a lot of the sampled drums and 808 bass lines and things like that, so with New Levels New Devils we wanted to transpose all of those aspects to real instruments TMH was kind of our test run, and once we made our single G.O.A.T we just rolled with it because it was pretty badass, and now I think we’ve really figured out how to transpose sounds to our instruments, so now the possibilities for future records is endless The Most Hated has had a pretty huge impact on your fanbase How did you decide to come up with it? We were really getting into rap beats and hip hop stuff and a lot of our friends are producers, so when we went to work with them they would make all this crazy dope shit, and we were kinda just like, alright I guess we’re doing this! Haha Our style at first was more of whatever genre you’d call our song “LIT”, but we knew that sounded kinda cheesy and at that time we had no idea what we were doing when it came to making beats, so when we went to work with Y2K for the first time he made all our cheesy shit sound dope, and now we have a much better idea of what sounds good these days haha There have been some massive leaps in sound and feel from the old-school, quintessential Polyphia to Renaissance and now NLND Can you tell us about the journey? We started out as a death metal band with our first EP Resurrect, and then jumped on the djent trend for our second EP Inspire, and once we got to our first full length studio album “Muse” we wanted to try all sorts of different stuff We didn’t want to make another djent album because that shit got super oversaturated and we didn’t really like it that much anymore, so we focused more on poppy sounding music It was also our first time working with Nick Sampson in the studio and he had a lot of sick ideas that we were down to try, so that definitely helped us make the album what it is, and kind of made us realize that we should start working with more producers and artists With Renaissance we wanted to our own thing in the studio with nick again since that worked so well with Muse, and The Most Hated is when we started branching out to hip hop/ trap and rap producers and started doing the real crazy shit And like I mentioned before, NLND was our version of all that stuff in full band mode played with all real instruments on top of the beats So we really like experimenting with stuff and making new styles of music I don’t think we’ll ever end up making the same album twice The next one could be a country album Riffs! How you come up with them? They're arguably the band's most defining quality and everyone would love to know the writing process behind them Our main goal with riffs is to make them catchy We try to structure our songs our so there’s a good melody in the chorus, cool riffs in the verses and maybe a bridge or something to tie the last chorus in to the rest of the song So it’s more focused on melody and catchiness and how everything fits in with the rest of the song What was the experience of featuring so many incredible talents on the latest album? Any key moments that stood out during the writing and tracking process? We didn’t any features on Renaissance because we wanted to have an album that was just us, so for this next one we figured let’s just have a bunch of our friends on the record and make it as collaborative and sick as we can We did our first song with vocals with Cuco too so that was fun to write to What was the inspiration behind the electronic and trap influences in your newer music? Tim and I listen to a lot of hard ass trap music and it pumps us up, so we incorporate it into our music so people can jam out to our stuff like we to other music we like We work with producers like Y2K, judge and lophiile and they’re crazy good at working with our style Tell us the story behind your relationship with CHON How did you end up crossing paths? They were on tour years back and played at a local place we always used to play at called Tomcats in Ft Worth, so we went to the show and out with them and we’ve been homies ever since! How did you end up signing with Equal Vision Records? How has the shift from independent music to a signed band impacted your music? One of our biggest concerns with labels is that they don’t try to control our style or our music Equal Vision really understood what we were trying to and knew the importance of us having our freedom and how that’s what makes us who we are, so I wouldn’t really say it’s affected us in any other way than just having a team of people help us the shit we and more What can we look forward to in the new year? Any tours or EP plans? We have our Look But Don’t Touch headliner coming up in April through May, which will be sick, and our Polyphia Crazy Ultra Mega Macho Summer Camp for the Musically Gifted and Extremely Talented in June which is also going to be sick As far as music goes, we’re always writing new stuff so when we get a chance to go hard on it and get in the studio you’ll know The Score Magazine highonscore.com 37 ARITRO GHOSH MUSIC OF THE LESSER PRIVILEGED HEROES It’s usually said that when he takes something away from you, something else is given back in return There are many historical people who, while suffering from certain disabilities, have given us more than what most of us “general” individuals couldn’t Let’s talk about some of them Music is such a field, wherein the past and present is witness to how names like Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, George Shearing and so on In India, we even have witnessed the famous lyricist and singer, Ravindra Jain, who helped lay the path for classical musicians of the present Alongside his contemporaries, like Pandit Bhimsen Joshi and Jagjit Singh, he contributed heavily to the world of Indian classical music Having built his career as a talented composer, he has contributed to several Bollywood films including Saudagar, Chor Machaye Shor, Chitchor and several more Having worked with the great Raj Kapoor in Ankhiyon ke Jharoken Se, he ultimately went on to compose for other classic hindi films with the Kapoors He was an example as a composer, always showing strict dedication and devotion to every taal which he was trying to create Apart from bollywood, he’s left a mark in other cultures as well; having sung songs for Telegu, Oriya, Bhojpuri, Rajasthani, as well as Haryanvi films He has also contributed to Bengali films like Pati Param Raja and Bhalobeshe Radha Another cherished name is of Sri Mohan Chandrashekharan, a violinist who has performed various duets and given fantastic memories to the field of Carnatic music Having lost his sight at a very early age, he found his solace in a violin; and thus gave us all the privilege to listen to his heart Some of the most prominent names in musical history however are Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, and Art Tatum They are still considered icons 38 The Score Magazine highonscore.com of their own specific genres of music; especially Art Tatum, whose skills as a jazz pianist inspire people to forego with their own love for piano In the world of blues, there was none who could make Why Did You Away the classic that it is today Largely influenced by the great Nat King Cole, there were few at that time so influential, who could bring out the soul of soul music like a visual of temptation The bass of his voice was one of unique style; much like Frank Sinatra, who's voice had a rhythm generations still remember As Sinatra once said, that he was the only true genius in the world of show business; having had a career spreading multiple genres, and having records spanning decades of fame even after he's gone Stevie Wonder, the most talented of his generation and considered to be a child prodigy, gave over thirty top ten hits and has been placed in the Guiness Book for having won the most Grammys till date for his music, which is a whopping 25 among 74 nominations Stevie Wonder, though one of the greatest living R&B blues icons today The You Are the Sunshine of My Life singer, no matter how many records he’s sold, was and always has been a very simple man He believed that just because a person lacks eyes doesn’t mean he lacks the vision His vision was what Clarence Paul saw in him, and gave him the name “Little Stevie Wonder”, before signing him to Motown, and then becoming his mentor To this day, Sunset is one of their most beautiful collaborations Superstition, one of Wonder’s most famous songs was fully improvised during the album session for Talking Book Stevie Wonder had told Jeff Beck to keep playing the drums while he created most of the song on the spot; he even made the famous riff ADITI SARAWAGI Women Achievers in Music There is so much talent in this country We all hear of the big achievers, the international celebrities but sometimes the small victories, which are actually the important ones, go unnoticed This Women’s Day, we at Score, unearth some true stellar achievements by women who first and foremost paved the way for the artists to follow suit today Here’s celebrating the women achievers in music in India all-women classical band who were also known as the ‘Indian Spice Girls.’ They opened Sting’s 1999 concert Stree Shakti was founded by Anuradha Pal in 1996 to create a platform for women to perform She was also entered in the Limca Book of Records for being the first professional female tabla virtuoso in the world in 1991 She also went on to become the only female Indian musician to have performed at the Woodstock Festival in 2008 A movie soundtrack would be incomplete without a female voice and yet one of the first female playback singers in the Hindi film industry was Shamshad Begum who had to fight her family and society’s pressures to enter the music industry With a beautiful voice, she finally went on to sing over six thousand songs in Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Gujarati, Tamil and Punjabi languages Other female singers of the time include Rajkumari Dubey, Zohrabai Ambalewali and Amirbai Karnataki Singing and music direction go hand in hand and one of the earliest female figures in Indian cinema was Saraswati Devi who composed many popular songs between the 1930s and 1940s She also trained actors and actresses in singing since playback did not exist then and she was responsible for introducing playback singing in Mumbai During these times there were hardly any women working in cinema but it was their sheer grit, determination and talent which got them through to the industry and opened ways for other women to follow suit More recently, 24-year-old Rafia Rahim became the first woman radio jockey on a private radio station from Kashmir's Budgam district She has become a household name after she hosted various local programs on the radio station This might not sound like a big deal but in the political upheaval of Kashmir, this indeed is a milestone moment for Rafia as well as Kashmir India has always churned out phenomenal talent and the first Indian singer’s track to go platinum is a woman of calibre, Ananya Birla whose single "Meant to Be" is certified platinum in the English music category as per the Indian Music Industry (IMI) recognized criteria for certifications You might not have heard about the first female band in India but it sure broke many stereotypes when an all- girl beat group ‘The Ladybirds’ was formed by Farida Vakil in the late 60’s when the Western music scene in India was highly male-dominated Though there were female singers but an all-girl band was rare and The Ladybirds became extremely popular, and till date, this band is considered a milestone in establishing women’s presence in the Indian music industry Another first was Stree Shakti which was India’s first Talking about new-age music, one has to mention Archy J or The Snake Charmer who is India's first female bagpiper to play commercially She is also a self-taught bagpiper who faced many adversities when she set out to learn the bagpipes as there were no teachers available in India Indian musicians are now global artists and the first Indian woman to win a Grammy, considered to be one of the most prestigious music awards in the world, is Tanvi Shah who was honoured for her contribution to the song ‘Jai Ho’ from Slumdog Millionaire in 2010 along with A.R Rahman and Gulzar She has also won World Soundtrack Award (2009) and the BMI Award (2009) Music is universal and these women have inspired many women in the music industry The Score Magazine highonscore.com 39 SNEHA RAMESH The Pianist by Casio IndiaGrand Finale: An aftermath “It’s wonderful to have a platform to highlight all kinds of music across Tamil Nadu They come from surprising places and we need to support them as there is so much wonderful music making happening with these kids It’s important to encourage them and make sure they don’t stop and cherish the music” added Adam Greig After three successful editions of The Pianist organized by Casio India Co Pvt Ltd, this year saw a phenomenal response in Tamil Nadu, the Tamil Edition We were truly amazed to see the talent pool in different regions of the state The regions covered this year included Trichy, Salem, Nagercoil, Tirunelveli, Madurai, Coimbatore and Chennai The grand finale was held in Chennai, judged by three remarkable musicians: Anil Srinivasan, Augustine Paul & Adam Greig “Over the last few weeks, I have had the privilege of traveling across Tamil Nadu in seven cities and listen to some of the most talented youngsters playing the Piano today They come from a variety of backgrounds and abilities It has been a learning for me too.” said Anil Srinivasan Palak Chauhan 40 The Isaac Watts Score Magazine highonscore.com “It is a pleasure to listen to little children playing such beautiful music and to take into consideration that most of them are from districts and not cities A good thing that is happening now is that when keyboard is thrown to children, they start meddling with it and end up playing When you talk about Piano, it is not easy and for middle income groups in Tamil Nadu, it’s not easy to afford and maintain a Piano This digital Piano is a great substitute Casio has popularized this and it’s a great stepping stone for kids It’s amazing that Casio has created a product in between a keyboard and a Piano.” concluded by Augustine Paul 35 participants battled it out at the grand finale to fit into three categories: Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced It was a tough competition but the judges had to select six winners in total The winners were: Advanced Category: Aaron Alex Abraham from Coonoor: Winner Tavan Shah from Chennai: Runner Up Intermediate Category: M Immanuel from Chennai: Winner Akshara Senthil from Chennai: Runner Up Akshara Senthil Beginner Category: Isaac Watts from Nagercoil : Winner Palak Chauhan from Chennai: Runner Up The journey through the competition: Aaron: I got to know about the competition through my music teacher, Mr Ivan Enos He sent me the details through WhatsApp I began practicing a few pieces and selected two for the preliminary round It was my first experience at a competition held at this level On 16th Feb, was the audition at Coimbatore and everything went quite well Two days later I got the news that I was selected for the finals I just could not contain my excitement but I was equally anxious about the competition that I’d have to face in the finals So, I began practicing as much as I could (with just a few days left) to ensure that I’ll be able to give my best shot in the finals It’s still hard for me to digest the fact that I actually won the competition amongst other equally worthy contestants I felt extremely happy to see so many budding pianists, who might have been waiting for this opportunity to showcase their talent Tavan: It was a last moment decision to take up this challenge, but it was a lot of fun I had to select a piece in such a way that it should come well within the minutes time limit, at the same time ensure that it gave the actual feel of the music and showed the abilities of the pianist I was surprised how I managed to learn it, memorise it and get it under my hands within the time Immanuel: I'm so grateful to receive this award for the Casio’s “The Pianist” contest I'm very excited to have won the Intermediate category I would like to thank Casio and all judges for giving me this opportunity This is a life changing moment for me It definitely has assured me that I 'm good enough and has motivated me to further develop my piano skills Music is my life! Akshara: This is my first competitive Piano event and I was nervous and excited at the same time I played the Hungarian Dance by Brahms at the Prelims and it was great to get Mr Anil Srinivasan’s handwritten feedback (and a picture!) It was a very pleasant surprise to be selected among the hundreds of other great performers, especially being one of the youngest in the Intermediate category Playing my favourite piece by Yanni at the Grand finale in front of the Immanuel Tavan Shah esteemed judges and a big crowd was an amazing first experience that I’ll remember for a long time to come Isaac: I started lessons at the age of with my Father, who got lessons from Mr Cleophas Anthony Choosing to compete is a commitment More than me, my parents committed a lot of time for my Practice, Learning, Recitals and Competitions They encouraged me and my mind set was to win Palak: This is my first competition on a big stage I enjoyed every minute I have played on stage before but this time it was a different feeling I was very excited and nervous I thank God, my Piano teachers Dr Surojeet Chatterji sir and Nitin Sir and my school KM Music Conservatory for this opportunity What were your biggest learning’s through this? Aaron: It all lies in the head; and the hands too! The ability to focus on what you’re supposed to amidst all the attention is a major factor which affects our performance Not only focus, but also enjoying what you’re doing and doing it the way it’s supposed to be done Tavan: The biggest thing I learnt from this competition was to keep myself composed, calm and focused in spite of the nerves, pressures and mental exhaustion I was feeling Immanuel: I learnt overall musicality I practiced for more than six hours for every day during this competition Then I got new ideas for this competition also overcame stage fear Akshara: My biggest learning from the competition was to enjoy and feel the piece while playing I learnt that bringing out the dynamism of the piece is very important I also learnt never to be scared before and while presenting yourself I’ve made a few friends at the event that I’m looking forward to reaching out to! Isaac: I can say it in one sentence: I believe that this competition will be a new path to my success Palak: My mother always says participation is important than winning I met so many big musicians like Anil sir, Augustine sir, Santosh sir and Navneeth sir I want to be like them one day Also, I learnt that how much ever you practice, on stage if you don’t be calm you will never be able to perform your best Aaron Alex Abraham The Score Magazine highonscore.com 41 Mixing with REVERB R EVERB’s are the effect which creates an ambience in your tracks In a treated room or at a home studio, the source would sound dry, sometimes its call this a dead sound or Broadcast quality sound if the acoustics are done well Many a time, we overdub vocals, guitars etc on our DAW and then apply reverb on the Vocals and others tracks as per our need To enhance our dry tracks, we need to create space or Ambience in our mix As we all record our tracks using closed microphone technique, everything in our whole mix will not sound like a reverb added even though the microphone is picking up the room tone Sometimes, placing a mic far away from the source can create room ambience to use in our mix creating a natural room tone reverb Mostly this is used in the Drum recording session Just because you have a reverb plug-in in your DAW, it is not mandatory to use reverb on every track It completely depends on the song’s context Here are some of my Tips on using REVERB To start fast, choose any preset which you like from the Stock Plug-in or third party plug-in I generally prefer the PLATE setting for my Vocals But you can use anything as you wish and as long as it sounds good for your song you produce Try to set the levels with a medium blend and try not to over push the decay time as it can muddy your mix A medium reverb or a short reverb is a good start Try to use a separate AUX buss named “REVERB BUSS” in your DAW and send the dry signal to the Reverb buss as it can save your CPU load 90% of the professional mix engineers follow like this only But as i say there are no rules for this, you can also insert it directly on the INSERT of your Audio Track as long as you don’t face any Latency issue in your Session If you have recorded a room reverb track by placing a microphone far from the source, then try to use a HPF (High Pass Filter) and roll off around 80Hz to 100Hz to cut the rumble in your mix and then blend this natural Reverb sound in your Mix This gives an overall blend and a good great sounding tone in your mix of production Don’t just copy the same settings and blindly apply on all your projects! Just be creative in your usage Try to hear the tail end of the reverb nicely and not to get washed out in your mix To get a good reverb sound, use a HPF before your Reverb plug-in and then insert a Reverb plug-in so that they don’t get washed away in your mix Always find a patch or a pre-set which suits your mix and feel of the Song There should not be too much blend of the Reverb in your mix This can spoil your tone and it will spill over all the tracks and making it muddy and float everywhere Near field monitors help in finding your best tone for reverb But this is not fixed, it depends on your need of your song and how well it sits in your mix Best tip to use reverb is to use a MONO REVERB Buss and send the dry signal to that, this way we can get a good reverb even in your Television MIX! Hope you have got some tips on using REVERB in your mix Happy Mixing! Try to use the pre-sets and then always tweak more to find the sweet sounding reverb which suites more for your kind Author: Baba.L.Prasad He is the owner and chief Sound/Mix and Mastering Engineer at Digi Sound Studio He also teaches Sound Engineering and Music Production courses For more details, visit www.digisoundacademy.com 42 The Score Magazine highonscore.com BOSS ANNOUNCES VERSION UPDATE FOR THE KATANA GUITAR AMPLIFIER SERIES Free Update Adds New Effects Types, User-Customizable Parameter Controls, and Stereo Recording Via USB B OSS announces a free Version update that further enhances the stage-class models in the popular Katana guitar amplifier series This feature-rich update adds three new effect types that are perfectly matched for the Katana’s Brown amp character, bringing the onboard effects total to 61 Other improvements include the ability to assign favorite parameters to the front-panel effects knobs and connected expression pedals, as well as the option to record with stereo effects when tracking in a DAW via USB All Katana stage-class amps include integrated access to a wide selection of BOSS effects, which are customizable using the free BOSS Tone Studio editor software With Version 3, the legendary Roland DC-30 Analog Chorus-Echo, iconic BOSS GE-10 Graphic Equalizer, and expressive 95E pedal wah effects have been added to the mix These classics work great with any of the Katana five amp characters, but offer special tonal magic when used in combination with the Brown character’s harmonically rich voice The Version update also provides the ability to assign favorite parameters to the front-panel effects knobs, giving users greater flexibility for shaping their own unique effects tones on the fly Additionally, it’s now possible to control specific effects parameters from up to three expression pedals connected via the rear panel and an optional GA-FC foot controller (The GA-FC is compatible with all Katana stageclass amps except the Katana-50.)

(Like visual arts, album arts, photographers and the likes) Hello, little bit about yourself and your background in arts and music? Hey, my name is Akanksha I’m a 22-year-old product designer and illustrator based out of Bombay I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember and I also took Hindustani vocal lessons for about years as a child, so art and music have always been intrinsically linked to my life On a daily basis, I can’t step out of my house without my earphones and a sketchbook Tell us about your collaboration with the Ramya Pothuri from conception to creation and the end product Ramya and I have been friends ever since she moved to India about six years ago; we have very similar tastes and also share a great working relationship Whenever she has new music she’s writing, I get to listen to it from the first demo to the final mix so it’s super fun to be involved in that process I’ve also worked on a lot of her album arts When it comes to the process, she usually has vague ideas that we discuss and she doodles, and then it’s up to me to kind of interpret them and bring them to life For Summer, there were actually two final options that I had sent to her and I didn’t know which one she picked till the song was out! I also did a simple animated visual for her YouTube channel which I really enjoyed making because it was the first time I made an animation 46 The Score Magazine highonscore.com I think it’s great that the music scene and musicians in general appreciate visual art and the work that goes into it because at the end of the day all of us have similar struggles as creatives I love to see collaborations with artists, whether it is for gig posters or music videos I think musicians go out of the way to work with artists, photographers and filmmakers whose work they truly connect which makes the end result beautiful How is creating an album art different from creating other art? With creating album art you really have to understand the mood of the song and try to bring that out in whatever you make I don’t know if the process is very different for me personally because a lot of my art stems from some song I was listening to The only difference would probably be that when I’m making album art, I listen to the music I’m making the art for on loop in the background and I think that helps Tell us about your art style and the concepts behind your artworks My favorite medium to work with is watercolors and I love to draw people and their exaggerated moods, fashion choices and gestures I don’t think I have one particular style but maybe a few depending on the time frame I have while creating a piece and whether I’m drawing from life or using a reference Conceptually, it’s just giving tangibility to my own complex emotions to help me process them better Bose Professional Introduces DesignMax Loudspeakers, Commercial Sound Processors and PowerSpace Amplifiers With 12 models to choose from, DesignMax loudspeakers bring outstanding audio and aesthetics to any commercial space Bose Professional is introducing DesignMax loudspeakers, a wide range of loudspeakers which offer the flexibility and style to deliver outstanding audio and aesthetics for any commercial space With ten loudspeakers and two subwoofers to choose from — including ceiling-mounted, surface-mounted, and outdoor-rated options — it’s easy to create tailored DesignMax systems for any application, large or small DesignMax loudspeakers range from 2-inch low-profile models to 8-inch high-SPL compression-driver loudspeakers All models deliver instantly-impressive sound, with no EQ or DSP required Enabling Bose EQ voicings on select Bose digital sound processors and smart amplifiers provides even better sound SmartBass processing can also be enabled to deliver enhanced sound at any listening level On select models, the Dispersion Alignment system provides wide and consistent off-axis response – so everyone hears premium sound Elegant form factor surface enclosures, sleek, minimumbezel grilles, removable logos, and attractive styling allow DesignMax loudspeakers to blend with any décor Surface-mounted DesignMax loudspeakers feature hidden U-brackets and the unique design holds the loudspeaker closer to the wall, providing a much cleaner appearance DesignMax loudspeakers are available in black or white, and are paintable For installers, unique QuickHold mounting mechanisms on each DesignMax loudspeaker make the installation job easier, reduce strain, hassle and save substantial time in the field For surface-mounted models, the loudspeaker snaps in to the QuickHold U-bracket Installers can adjust the pitch and lock the QuickHold levers to set the loudspeaker in place, without using tools, in seconds For ceiling-mounted models, installers can simply push the loudspeaker into the ceiling opening QuickHold mounting arms spring into place, holding the loudspeaker as the installer finishes the job All models include Euroblock connectors; ceilingmounted models include plenum-rated backcans, tile-bridges, and front-access audio wiring that makes installation and troubleshooting easier From concept and design to installation and operation, Bose Professional DesignMax loudspeakers have the features, style, and flexibility to make every phase of a project more successful — leaving end users more than satisfied with everything they hear (and see) For more information, visit PRO.BOSE.COM Gig Calendar MARCH 2019 MUMBAI DELHI Mar The Obvious Cats The Pianoman Jazz Club, New Delhi Mar Qareeb Flyp Café, Delhi Mar The Jass B'stards & Special Guests The Pianoman Jazz Club, New Delhi Mar 11 Deemetoo The Pianoman Jazz Club, New Delhi Mar Gino Banks Drummer Series : A Tribute to the Great Tony Williams The Quarter, Mumbai Mar 14 Prabjtojh Singh Trio Hard Rock Café, New Delhi Mar Kitty Su Mumbai & sLick!
