It was only a few days ago that Rahman fans weren’t able to listen to the official soundtrack of the movie 2.0. The makers of the Rajinikanth-Akshay Kumar-Amy Jackson film that released last year had not included the music in the overall package. But now Productions has made available the official album of 2.0, composed by music maestro AR Rahman.
The album includes 15 tunes belonging to various music genres – western, glitch hop and electronic music. The playlist covers the different emotions portrayed in the movie. One of the best tracks - and it was heard in the trailer - is The unknown. In the tunes original version, a lot of pan and other sound effects that were not heard in the trailer are interesting.
Listen to the album below for the first time:
For this masterpiece, the talented musicians involved included lead orchestrator Matt Dunkley, choral conductor Arjun Chandy, modular synth programmer Pawan CH and sound engineers Suresh Permal and Karthik Sekaran. The tracks were mastered by Suresh Permal and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and Panchathan Record Inn in Chennai.
In 2.0 Rahman worked with his Slumdog Millionaire colleague, sound designer Resul Pookutty. So can you expecting another Oscar or Golden Reel for 2.0? What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
