Antareep Hazarika You Tube Cover Star
We will never be Royals … Royals … It’s not in our blood … That kind of lux just ain’t for us … We crave a different kind of buzz !! … Meet Antareep Hazarika folks ! … I came across his channel on You Tube quite by accident and was absolutely bowled over by his cover of Lorde’s phenomenal hit “Royals” … And what a cover it is !! … The sounds used in the vid have been recorded from Car Parts and sounds made by mouth …. The Ukulele was the only musical instrument used in the making of the song … Both Aanchal and I put it to the test blasting it on our car stereos on the Delhi roads, and every time we stopped and wondered at the absolute magic of the rendition !! … Apart from the music prodigy Antareep, this young kid Surya Prakash Medhi hits it for a six with a stunning cadillac easy voice from a no postcode envy town !! …. As i surfed through all their covers, i marvelled at these young group of Assamese youngsters and knew that i got to write about them …. bring them to the limelight of our readers …. As luck would have it, one of the young singers in Antareep’s vid, Illiyana Gogoi, happened to be a younger cousin of a friend and through Facebook the connections grew as i posted links of their vids on friends timelines …. Unanimously, everybody agreed, these kids are well on their way to becoming phenomenal stars … Do check out our top 5 covers from Antareep’s You Tube page … and an interview with this amazing awesome self taught musician !!
When people ask me why I post videos on YouTube, I often tell them that YouTube is my way of exhibiting how overly passionate I am about Film Making and Music. I feel that Music is something that runs in my Blood and I don’t need any other reason, more relevant, to showcase my work on YouTube. Music and Film Making greatly motivate me to Explore my world and inspires me to experiment with ideas Out-of-the-box. My Viewers on YouTube inspire me to work hard. I believe that every single opinion from My Viewers comes with a valuable lesson for me to learn.
I generally work on Cover videos. Why? Because I think it is a nice idea to connect to my Viewers through Pre Acquainted songs. Of course, I have plans of working on Own Compositions in the Pipeline! My choice of Music has no limitations! I personally love working on All Kinds of Music with no Genre-Based limitations involved. I wish to experiment with Music of All-Genres, Unbiased.
I love working on Low Budgets! I believe that it is not necessary to have High-End Industry-Grade equipments to work as a Music Producer or as a Film Maker. I stand for using all resources efficiently rather than opting for High End resources. It is the effort and the enthusiasm that one exhibits towards his work that determines the overall quality of the work. All of my work on my YouTube channel are Zero Budget projects!
The process involved in Making of videos start from my Home Studio Setup. I start by recording all Instruments, one at a time. Then, I catch up with my friends, who are amazingly talented singers, and start off with the Dubbing. After that, I Mix and Master the Audio Track and Proceed to the Film Making part of the Process. As the Director, I plan out all my shots and visualise every single detail of my video Beforehand. I meet up with my friend, Raunak Hazarika, and decide all the technicalities related to shooting of the video. Raunak takes care of the entire shoot and with him around, there’s nothing for me to be worried about! I believe that we both make the perfect Director-Photographer Duo! After the shoot’s done with, I edit the videos. My friend, Surya Prakash Medhi, helps me with the Color Correction of the video. Surya is a Singer and an amazing Designer and he helps me with all the Art Designs involved in the Video. And after that, I post my Video to my YouTube Channel!
