Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

For those who appreciate Carnatic music

The December Madras music season has begun in Chennai. I will be content to catch glimpses of artistes' brilliance on the small screen, and read reviews by experts and critics in the newspaper. Raji gives the perfect preview of the ethos - complete with all the factors that make the festival in my home town so unique.

That's not all. For a further treat, Carnatic music buffs can also look out for Markazhi raagam, a first of its kind project that will present classical concert by Bombay Jayasree and TM Krishna in theatres. The worldwide release is slated for 18 Dec 2008.

Here's the link to the trailer

And these are the firsts that this project claims
"First ever classical concert produced to be played in Cinema halls.
First ever alternate content from India for Digital Cinema Theatres (Non feature programming).
First ever Classical music content to be shot and post produced in 4k resolution
First ever programme in the world to be shot with 7 Red 4k cameras.
First classical music programme that will be mixed in 5.1 (ie. 6 channel sound)
First classical music programme that will be mixed to THX certification
First classical music programme to be released in Blue Ray
First classical music programme that will be available on DVD and audio CD in 6 track surround sound."

You seem to be an avid music lover... if you are attending the concerts, will be nice to read about the way you interpret their music, in your blog.

You've really kindled the interest and brought out the finer points in these music programs. Someday I will surely go and witness them. Thank you.

I am less than a novice, but can certainly make out good music from noise, or just sounds. :)

Catch them on the small screen, then decide!
