Real Instruments Losing Its Sheen In This New-Age Music World

As we are getting more inclined to the technological advances happening around us in the digital era, there is no denying that its impact is seen everywhere including the music used in our songs. Today’s popular mainstream music is just the result of computers and the knowledge of extra-ordinary sound engineering techniques. Format, mediums, performance, and distribution of music has forced those in the music industry to follow this rising trend and either adapt or die out.

Indie lyricist Mr Deepak Jeswal, who has written over 100 song lyrics and poems, said the ease of technology has only made people lazier and recording a program on your laptop has become a cakewalk rather than gathering all the musicians to the studio and record the songs.

Banker by profession, Mr Jeswal is passionate about music. In his free time, he loves to read and hear the poems written by Gulzar, Sahir Ludhianvi, Rajendra Krishna, Gulshan Bawra, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Raja Mehndi Ali Khan among others. His upcoming song Tere Qareeb is all set to launch and in this ghazal they have used the real instruments. To cater to the youth, they have modernized the song with lyrics close to millennials hearts.



In the era of digital downloading, the music industry has gained more control over pirated music and internet streaming as it has become the norm. When asked when the trend actually began, he said, “It’s been a gradual transition. There is no one defined moment. But in the last 9-10 years I feel the music shifted its pace and style. Nee composers brought in their own sensibilities - which is both good and bad. But the fact is when you wish to remember a song usually you would quote an old one only.” 

Echoing the same thoughts as Mr Jeswal, music composer Mr Arnab Chatterjee said using real instruments means getting into the soul of the music and its musicians.
