Heem to sing for actresses too!
By Shoebox Que? Jaw
Heem or "Heem: Ace M.D", as he likes to be known, is not content with singing playback for all the male leads in his film albums. He is now going to sing for the female voices in his songs too, especially in his popular duets.
When contacted, the young music director refuted all accusations of this being a gimmick. "This is just another phase in my evolution as a music composer and singer. I still have a lot to learn in this ocean of music." Though gossip in the industry is that Heem, having enjoyed success singing in his unique voice in the last year for all the male voices in his films, wondered why female playback singers in his duets were taking all acclaim. News of the latest release of the music software Noizz-Trillzz from the Ol' Factory de Musique with their new module for further pitch and tonal modifications reached him, and experiments revealed that this unprecedented effort could be possible. "All this is part of my continued experimentation in this field", shrugs the composer with a wave of his newly acquired cape.
Reactions have been mixed. Female playback singers were understandably miffed with these developments considering that they were already being sidelined in the promotion of Heem's music. Actress Yoodishree who appeared in Heem's debut album "Race Me, Yeah!" and is also appearing in its remash "Race Me, Yaar!" was understandably more cautious. "It is, like, a new thing, na?" she cooed. Close friend and fashion stylist Pachy C. dismissed all these criticisms as jealousy adding: "His voice has a divine mix of Shiv and Shakti, which we will bring out in the videos".
The man himself says that this is a unique effort at creating a new genre of Androgynous Sufi Pop Rock Blues. Will it mean he will now have a good chance at winning three Filmfare Awards all at once? "I am not really thinking about all that. Right now, all I want to do is to focus on my work and riyaaz."
We know that Heem is laughing, oops, singing his way to his music banks!
