This is the kind of music that I hope the American audience tunes into. In many interviews, I know quite a few Western Directors/Composers have mentioned Rahman’s melodies. But I think what they have not mentioned in as many words is this man’s equal or even better control over Rhythm.
What an amazing & sometimes scary understanding of rhythm he has. Not only does he understand, he actually experiments quite freely. I am glad he decided to do this in a Hollywood movie as well. My only regret – Why such a short piece AR? I wish this piece lasts forever. Listen to the Piano, Listen to the Guitar and how things drift. Stunning. This is just a sample I have uploaded for those who don’t have access to the album as yet. (“People Like Us”). Thanks Alex Kurtzman for believing in AR.
