A deep conversation/QnA session with the best in the business — Vishal J Singh — The Showrunners exclusive pick of the week

1. First of all, it’s a pleasure to have you in this series. Please tell us how did you find your way to music? Also, tell us about your childhood and how it was connected to music?

2. How did the idea of Amogh Symphony come to you? Tell us about how did you plan the writing process? Were there any other projects as well?

3. What are those important factors you can’t ignore while writing music and why?

  • Accept yourself the way you are. Be shameless, be naked.
  • Do not find peace in comfort if you want the complete experience. Don’t wait. Do it now.
  • Stand up and shout out what you always wanted to say. But with the brain, with creativity, with peace.
  • If you accepted yourself after coming out of hell, you will know why judging others doesn’t make any sense anymore. We all have stories to share. Let’s share.
  • Art has to improve and upgrade with every upcoming generation. You leave a legacy for the future generations in the never-ending world of capitalism, chaos, and rat-race. Sooner or later, somebody will be the next "you".
