Attention!.

Read Full Post »

It was a spherical world, with an only soul staying there with complete luxury and a defined practice of life… he grew from a dot to a fetus in a closed atmosphere filled with Amniotic fluid and sufficient supply of oxygen, he not only lived like a fish in the water, he also felt his creator around him always; with an awakening sound in the atmosphere, which assured him of his well being. He also heard filtered alien voices and noises coming from a distance from the different world. His growth was fastest in this environment. When he was getting familiarized with the echoes from the pandemonium; he was also shocked and surprised of himself when he became aware of the first emotion ever “Fear”.

It was a regular calm living with a few prosaic motion of the sphere, swaying him few times along with the liquid, which happens with him regularly, since the compact space still had room to move around. Then the sudden stretch of his world, with a moment of pause in his creators heart beat! only to pick a faster tempo gave him the fear. It was an unpleasant thud which came from the other side of the world which also shook him like the paused heart beat. This emotion repeated a few times during the course of compact world become compacter.

Like every good thing has to come to an end, even his world had to face the catastrophe; there was a huge chaos around him, it was like he was sinking into dry land, he felt some extreme force is pushing him down, he felt even his creator was trying hard to disown him or helping the fiercely force to push him away. It was a long lasting struggle, his creator’s heartbeat had gone to the peak, there was a lot of yelling and shouting, when he was forced through the narrow stretch. He had to give up his struggle when he feels the sense of “touch”, he’s in the clasp of the foreign force, which was pulling him out to another world, the cord of luxury; the umbilical cord didn’t leave him and stretched along the push and pull when the alien voices were coming close to him.

The metamorphosis to the new world, also made him realize the source from which he could hear and air gushes into his lungs leaving the sense of smell, of being alive.

Today something beautiful happened!!!

Two days back I was at my friends, casually hanging around having a couple of drinks, he is a music composer, he showed me his recent project which he is currently working on, a piece of background music for a Hindi movie. I was amazed by his work, I always used wondered! How these musician are able to play music on a piece of a video clip, where, calculation of the beats exactly matches the motion clip, building it up to add up to the rhythm and being able to create effects on the exact spot where it is needed in the images of emotion. We always see in the movies there is a background score picking up the rhythm to enhance the images, emotions and it will exactly give the same effect which is needed to make the images effective (of course the composer has to be good) in between the ballet be it tragic, sad, horrific, happy, abrupt etc.

That day I asked my friend how do they do it, as music has its own calculation of beats to make it sound rhythmic to our ears, how do they get the exact sudden effects in between the on going rhythm and still make it sound as if it is a part of it, how?

He answered me; every editor has a rhythm when he edits the video clips, it’s simple. Really!!! That didn’t make much sense to me, and I couldn’t believe that, how would someone already know the rhythm of a music piece when it’s not even created.

I also have an editor friend who has done some amazing editing work for some of the great Bollywood films and I asked him the same question, how does the background music exactly fit the images the scene you have cut, sandy (my composer friend) says every editor has a rhythm when he is editing, is it true! I asked him.

He said yes! When I edit I have a rhythm, which I follow, for every scene depending on the mood of the scene, in fact I like to edit without dialogues, on mute.

I said ok! Now I get it. So every second has 24 frames, which means it has it’s own calculation, like every rhythm has it’s own calculation of tempo, so they meet somewhere right?

He said; no it’s not like that, I might take 16 frames of 1second and 49 frames of other few and invariable continue editing a scene. There is no calculation as such. Every scene has it’s own life & rhythm, he said.

What!!! To me, that was a shocking discovery: if we can create a piece of music for every video clip, which can exactly fit within the timeline, rhythmically! And if that is true, everything what we see, every image which exists, has its own rhythm, which also means that sudden does not exist, and if sudden exists, sudden has it’s own rhythm to pick up to fit the original rhythm.

If we were to apply this logic in our lives, and rethink about the phrase, which goes – “whatever happens, happens for the good”, works very well, if there are problems, misery, accident, death, surprise, joy or any such sudden changes in your life, don’t worry.

There is a reason behind every happening, it might take it’s own time to pick up the rhythm and blend in well with the original Rhythm Of Life to make a beautiful story of your life. And in the end everything will look like; it was a beautiful movie with some great background score.
