[ My son ? in Future ? lol ? Why are you asking like this CDTV ? :P :P Rejected question ;) ]
Javed is an impeccable music director well known for his scoring in short films. Now that he has stepped in feature film, his endeavours will be widely recognized. We wish him whole heartily !
» How come the breakthrough into feature film (Kadalaasu Puli) happened ?
It all started with an unexpected call from the director of the malayalam movie - 'Kadalaasu Puli' who wanted to feature my music in his film after having heard of my music and scores through my previous short films .
" All thanks to the almighty "
From a very young age A.R.Rahman has always been an inspiration to me as well as my music ! M.S.Viswanathan, Ilayaraja and many more awesome composers are my other sources of inspiration.
I was a freelance Music Composer and I still am.
" Demand is not the right word , but I do .. "
» Are you a viscomate .. Your college days with reference to your music composition..
No, I am not . I did B.E Computer Science in Crescent engineering College, Chennai and I was in a band called 'Paradigm Shift' which gave me a platform to experiment with music.
» Were your parents supportive for your interest in music ?
Yes for sure. My father especially has been very supportive of my music. And without my brother it would not have been possible. My heartfelt thanks to my bro and my parents. I will always be in their debt .
All thanks to the almighty . .
"Demand" is not the right word , but I do "quote" a reasonable and negotiable amount of money for all my projects .
» How much in average do you get paid for your music score in short films . . . .
It's not a fixed rate . It depends upon the script of the film , the sounding it demands for the music score . And also the duration .
» And is that you refused to do scoring for some shorts ..
It would've probably been due to time constraint.
' » Why haven't you stepped into tamil film industry ?
It's not that I have not stepped into the Tamil film industry. I am just waiting for the right movie which has the potential to showcase my music .
Yes, I have done 3 short films for Enoc and 1 is underway . Those experiences were always magical. There was always a perfect click between the music and the lyrics which my Lyricist Antony Faze will also agree with when working for Enoc's films.
