Despite digitisation in music and films, renowned filmmaker Goutam Ghose feels true music lovers still love listening to gramophone records.

"True music lovers still love records. I regularly hear music on records and I love doing it, because you care about what you possess - as in putting the pin correctly, seeing to it that scratches are kept away, you dust it and then you listen to it," Ghose told IANS here.

"European countries are now, again going back to listening to the records because of the love for music quality or depth of the sound, that is analog stereo," he added.

Director of films like "Paar", "Dekha" and "Abar Aranye", Ghose said in the era of technological advances in photography and videography, he still depends on negatives for his films.

"Even films have become outdated; Fuji and Kodak have almost stopped producing photofilm because of digitisation opening new boundaries in photography and videogaraphy and claiming of producing better results.

"I, being a cinematographer, can guarantee no such results. I can't even think of my films without negatives. Suppose if a hard disk crashes, or there's a system failure, how many back ups can you have?" asked Ghose.

Noted percussionist Bickram Ghosh, renowned for his albums like "Folktail" and "Rhythmscape", advocated the need to buy original cassettes and CDs to combat piracy.

"To hear quality sound, people have to kill piracy, and buy original cassettes and CDs for quality music," said Ghosh at the launch of a compilation of Bengali songs "Mon Dariaye" by Asha Audio company here.
