New York and Goa-based composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Karsh Kale, whose new single 'Disappear' features vocals and lyrics by Delhi-based electronic musician Komorebi aka Tarana Marwah, talks about his upcoming projects, the status of his next album and releasing music in the playlist era.


Q. What do you look for in a collaborator?


I tend to be drawn to storytellers, no matter what they do, whether they're instrumentalists or producers or songwriters, singers. People like guitarist Warren Mendonsa of Blackstratblues, for instance. If I'm explaining an arrangement to him, he then takes that to the next level.


Q. This year, you've done the electronica project Little Whale, 'Disappear' and the score for Gully Boy. What else do you have in store for 2019?


Right now, I'm working on all the music for Anurag Kashyap's next untitled film. I'm working on a few songs with (singer-songwriter) Kamakshi Khanna for her album, which is a Hindi take on R&B. I've also done an album with Amaan and Ayaan (Ali Khan) called Infinity, which will be out this year.


Q. What's the update on your new album?


That's the one thing that's not set aside, but I'm always pulling up once I have free time between projects. We're also in an age when the album is kind of dying. People pay attention to two singles and then they forget about the rest of the songs. It becomes a waste of effort.


Q. You've seen the music industry evolve from the pre-internet era to now when 'Disappear' has been released not by a label but by streaming service JioSaavn. What's changed for the better and for the worse in the past 20 years?


For the better, the availability for lots of different artists to be able to get their [music] out and be heard. The disadvantage is that people's attention span has been [divided]. At the same time, working with JioSaavn, I really felt that doing singles is the better way to move forward. [They're] like mini shows. If I felt like I was a filmmaker before, now I'm putting out episodes to an audience that's consuming things that way.
