Technology is boon for music: Mahadevan

Shankar MahadevanSinger-composer Shankar Mahadevan feels that technology is a blessing in disguise for the music industry. He says it has made composing, easier and sophisticated. “All my music is technologically driven. We use a lot of technical plug-ins. The amount of our use can be known from the fact that we have started an online music academy. It is a boon for our industry,” says Mahadevan.

In New Delhi recently for his first webcert, he says digital concerts can take live performances to a different level. The singer, who has received rave reviews for Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, is not threatened by competition. “Everybody has their own space and enough work. The young music-directors are wonderful.” Dedicating his success to his wife from whom he derives positivity, Mahadevan has no regrets in life. His upcoming projects are Don 2 and Aarakshan. — PTI
