There comes a point in our lives when we become too comfortable with what we’ve been doing. It’s possible to break this monotony by finding and introducing something else in our life that brings back the old challenge when you did the thing that caused boredom in the first place.
I’ve always been a vocalist of Indian Classical style. A few weeks ago, I realized that I’ve been feeling too comfortable with being just a vocalist. It took me more than two decades of hard work, rigorous practice and numerous rejections to feel extremely comfortable in what I've been good at. But, lately, I've started to lose that spark in me. So, I decided to introduce something else to my existing musical portfolio, that is, to arrange music for my songs.
Currently, I’m taking baby steps in music arrangement by slowly implementing layers of an instrument at a time. In this era of midi music and music loops, this is just a natural and a logical next step to singing. I will be doing covers, initially, and once I get a grip on the process, I'm planning to do a few originals as well.
Meanwhile, do listen to this track for which I did a simple acoustic arrangement.
