It will be of great help to budding musicians, says Karthik

Chennai: Want to sing a song and listen to it with background music? Check in at the Sing ur Tunes stall on the third floor of Abirami Mall where Sound Tech Media’s studio, offering such facilities, is located.

Playback singer Karthik inaugurated it by singing his popular “Oru Malai Ilam Veyil Neram,” number from ‘Ghajini’, as Sound Tech Media proprietor Manoj Kumar sat before the audio mixer with studio and hi-fi monitors for the recording and mixing.

The background music tracks will be available for songs in Hindi, English, Tamil and Malayalam.

As the CD containing his song mixed with the background music was played, Mr. Karthik said he was excited about the concept. “Manoj knows so much about sound and has provided this facility with professional recording gear that will help the common public, students and professionals alike,” he said.

Recalling how he used to pay Rs.2,500 to a studio for making a demo CD six years ago, Mr. Karthik said Sound Tech Media’s facility would be of great help to budding musicians.

Singers Vinaya and Uma rendered a verse from the Guru Paduka Stotram that features in a Kosmic Music CD ‘Sacred Chants’.

Mr. Kumar said singers desirous of recording their voice with the background music could do at a cost. The singers will also be provided with a CD.

Samples of their song tracks will later be uploaded onto a website. >http://www.singyourtunes.com, soon.

This site will be accessible to music directors, said Praveen Lewis, sound engineer at the studio.
