From his edgy and avant garde music in Dev D to melodious numbers in Lootera, composer Amit Trivedi always kept us guessing. Having just composed music for Bombay Velvet, reminiscent of the sound of the ’60s and MTV Coke Studio season three which aired this week, Trivedi is a busy man with three other films to work on. He credits the variety in his music to the director’s (of the film) vision. “They (directors) expect the music to connect well to the brief, vision and screenplay and reach out to the audience accordingly. For instance, Kai Po Che had a Gujarati flavour which was weaved into the music,” he explains, adding that he follows his conviction. Talking about composing, he also prefers working in the night like music genius AR Rahman. “You can concentrate more since the whole world shuts down,” says the National Award-winning director who works till the wee hours most days. Out of the five songs he has composed (across different genres like pop, rock and folk) for MTV Coke Studio, Trivedi chooses Khadi Khadi as his favourite. “I relate to it in a way. It’s poetically and aesthetically a deep number, which grows on you. You have to hear the song to know what

I m talking about,” insists the composer whose last live performance was at Hard Rock Cafe in Delhi and Hyderabad, part of MTV Coke Studio concerts in 2012.
