HYDERABAD: Providing a local touch to a diverse cast in Ram Gopal Varma’s recent thriller Killing Veerappan, aspiring Hyderabadi music composer Satya Kashyap said that he enjoyed mixing beats and composing for the film.
The 30-year-old Hyderabadi, who remixed the song Hayya Hayya from the film, is the only Telugu musician in the list of composers in the film.
“I had previously worked with Ram Gopal Varma in Ice Cream 2. So this time around, he called me up and said that he was looking for something very different. He wanted a remix, which is groovy yet powerful,” explains Kashyap.
“So I sent him a few sounds and he liked it instantly and decided to use it in the film,” he says, excitedly.
The young composer is pleased with the accolades he’s receiving for the remix and heaps praise on RGV for giving him the chance to showcase his talent.
“He’s truly amazing. He has a great personality and interacts very well with all the technicians. He definitely motivated all of us to do better,” he gushes.
Having pursued his graduation on Hindustani classical music from Hyderabad music college, Kashyap has sound classical knowledge and also enjoys dabbling with new concepts, mixes and beats. Taking us through the work on his song in Killing Veerappan, he says, “Apart from the remix, I took special care to ensure the sound effects, ambience, whispers, etc are in place. The whole song took me ten days to create.”
With his latest song impressing filmmakers, Kashyap now has his kitty full.
“My forthcoming assignments include three projects in Telugu, and a Hindi film. I will also be doing another film with RGV,” he adds.
