Bangalore: Karsh Kale, a famous Indian American musician, producer and composer says that a musician or a band loses out on identity while composing music for movies, reports IANS.

"I think any time you are making music for a film, you are not making your own music any more. You are making music, which a director or a producer is asking you to make. Even if you put your stamp on it, it is someone else's vision. There is a huge difference there," Kale told IANS.

Kale became quite popular in the Hindi film industry with his compositions for movies such as ‘Pyaar Impossible’, ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’ and ‘Chutney Popcorn’. He does not follow conventional kind of tuning and also admits that at times musician ends up composing something entirely new for a particular film.

"It depends on the film. Some of them call for true evolution and you end up doing things which you normally won't do as an artist. And there are films which don't," said Kale

"It is important for the music audience to get to know the life of musicians and see what they go through to make great music. Often, they only see the final product," he said.

According to him, Indian audience should exposed more to fusion music as they are longing to listen to something special and unique.

"People must be exposed to new music. This was how fusion became popular in the rest of the world too. We see people thronging music festivals, so that is an indication that people are craving for different music and are asking for it," he said.

Kale was raised in New York and completed his higher studies in music production and performance from New York University.
