Musicians and Technology in the Mumbai Film-Music Industry

Musicians and Technology in the Mumbai Film-Music Industry

(p.56) 2 Musicians and Technology in the Mumbai Film-Music Industry
Behind the Curtain

Gregory D. Booth

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the technologies and the changing “limits of the possible” under which film musicians, recording engineers, music directors and film producers in Mumbai, India operated. It suggests that despite the limitations of technology there were instances when Mumbai musicians and engineers exceeded the technological limitations of their environment. In this way, technology has been the ground on which the professional and social structures of daily life were constructed and the primary determinant in a determinist history of this music culture.

Keywords:   film-music industry, Mumbai, India, technological limitations, film musicians, recording engineers, music directors, film producers
