Rahman revolutionised sound. He's a trend-setter in more ways than one. The only thing common between us is the fact that we started out in advertising and moved on to films. There's just no comparison otherwise. Rahman is a legend of sorts.

have listened to a lot of music, but Rahman wins. The guy is amazing. When we came with the idea of Vande Mataram, he was enthused like few people I have known and seeing him work is a learning experience. The immense knowledge he has about music and the frenzy with which he approaches his work..., he is my greatest musical influence.

It's not enough to be successful. It's important to attempt something new. Rahman's contribution to film music will never be forgotten. He has given a new dimension and understanding to sound.

I admire three things about Rahman. Among the young composers he probably is the most original. He has a strong sense of melody and his harmony is unbeatable. Finally he gives his music a rich tonal color, richness through his combination of instruments, a character to the music.

The composer who re-wrote the history of film music was A.R.Rahman with the path-breaking soundtrack of Roja. The sound created by the little master was nothing less than astounding. His concept of fresh sound included acoustics of unheard instruments, fusion of Indian and western, plus introducing new singers with distinct voice quality. Right from 1993 onwards, till today music industry has not been able to fathom the inexhaustible talent of the composer.

Rahman doesn't talk much he lets his music do the talking.. When the singer feels that they can give only 50% of what he is expecting, Rahman knows how to extract upto 100% from them!

It is every singer's dream to work with A R Rahman because he makes you feel like God. I worked with Rahman for a beautiful song called E Nazneen suno and for Nayak. Of course, I did get nervous when I had to record with him, especially since he records at an unearthly hour like three in the night. But he makes you feel as if you are AR Rahman and he is just an ordinary fellow. Other music directors should learn to be humble like him. Today's music directors do not respect their singers. If one singer is not around they replace them with another. Also, they demoralise you when you are in front of the mike.
