This chapter examines the orchestras, orchestral procedures, instrumental change and programming involved in song production for the film-music industry in Mumbai, India. It states that the changes in the size of orchestra, the orchestral procedures, surrounding arrangements and background music, and the introduction of new instruments occurred independent of stylistic considerations. It evaluates the notion the Mumbai studio orchestra as an instrumental ensemble through analysis of the cultural and industrial conditions of orchestral musicianship.

Keywords:   orchestras, orchestral procedure, instrumental change, song production, film-music industry, Mumbai, India, background music, studio orchestra
