இரவின் பரிதவிப்பு - Song of the week



இரவின் பரிதவிப்பு (Angst of the night) - my newest music track is now out on Soundcloud. The song has been composed and arranged in my Yamaha MO6 in the likes of contemporary Tamil filmy music. Check it out and tell me if you like it!





Elements I adore in my song myself: the upbeat piano intro that races to the top, stops, turns around and gracefully descends down to the start, the rich tapestry of bass which sits at the backdrop and melts life into the song, the minimalistic percussion that fits into the mood of the song, the ‘josh’ of the steel guitar strumming away, and finally, the orchestral twist in the end.

The Lyrics

When my friend Krithi, listened to me jamming the leads on the piano, she felt that the song was itching to narrate a story to the world. Soon, the scene was set – a couple stealthily spending the night together under the moonlight – and we began to pen the lyrics as sung by the girl. She supplied the words and the transitions, and I refined, metered and fit them into the song. For more stories, check out Krithi's blog.


இரவின் பரிதவிப்பு 


என்னவென்று சொல்வதடா இந்த பரிதவிப்பை,
உன் கரம் என்னை அணைக்க...
பொங்கி வரும் காதல் வெள்ளம் பெண்ணின் நாணம் மறைக்க
உன்னில் நான் என்னை இழக்க...

என்னவென்று சொல்வதடா இந்த பரிதவிப்பை,
உன் கரம் என்னை அணைக்க...
பொங்கி வரும் காதல் வெள்ளம் பெண்ணின் நாணம் மறைக்க
உன்னில் நான் என்னை இழக்க...

தீண்டும் உந்தன் விரல் நுனி,
தீயில் விழும் மலர்க்கொடி,
விரும்பினேன்... விலகினேன்...

விலகிய மறு கணம்,
வருந்தியதென் மனம்,
சீண்டினேன்... உனை தீண்டினேன்...


...



... and a couple more stanzas for the section 0:54 to 1:05 in the song. 


I'd love if you guys too contribute to the song and the lyrics!
And stay tuned for the female vocal version of the song coming out soon!!

Shivsu said...

Thank you, Deva!!!

Yeah, the one which "killed the cat" and the first post you began reading is my most favourite post too! (I sure had fun in the bus that night!!!)

Poetic flow? I hope you aren't referring to any "poetic flow" of things in my post I Wish I Had an Erection!!!

Shivsu said...
