H. Sridhar's sound fades out

The credits of every A.R.Rahman album are extensive: featuring every significant contributor, from the voice on the backing vocals to that guitarist to the sound technicians. In course of time, this made names such as flautist Naveen and singers Dominique and Clinton Cerejo well known to Rahman fans. One such name was H. Sridhar, Rahman's sound engineer, who passed away on the 1st of Dec.

The men behind the mixers are easy to miss in the glories of the music director. Think of the crisp and crystal soundscapes that you associate with the music of A.R.Rahman and one of the people you are silently tipping your hat to is his designer H.Sridhar.

Here's an obit from The Hindu of the multiple National Award winner.
