"The Sky Above Us"- It's a tune Satwik composed last fall. At first, It was difficult for him to find a sonic space and parity for the tune, yet in the end he found an ideal choice for everything and the tune turned out as he needed. This tune is comprised of shifted scope of feelings all through and he gets a kick out of the chance to think about the melody as an alternate understanding for every individual who hears it, as in cases most instrumental music pieces seem to be, But for this situation, his assessment evoked with the relationship with the skies since he will in general thinks, are portrayal of our emotions. He feels we dream and ponder a ton of things through the various skies above, which brings out a particular sort of feeling. It demonstrates our perspective, So he believes that is about it really! An excursion of feelings.
He needed the track to be intimate, not to be all garish with the arrangements, however serves the song and gives it equity. It is altogether arranged, composed and produced by him which was a great deal of work setting out all the instruments and choosing the space for each component as indicated. This song is mixed by a good friend of Satwik and Mix engineer, Himanshu Mamgain at Merak Studios, New Delhi who has worked with artists like Shujaat Khan, Mohini Dey to give some examples. The Mastering Duties were taken care of by M. Krishna Rao From Lotustree Studios who has worked with specialists, for example, Prateek Kuhaad, Peter Cat Recording Co.
