Song made with Loopy in a new Indian movie
Just wanted to share this with you all. I know this is not the first time Loopy has been used in large scale music compositions but still, it is yet another awesome use of this app.
Recently, there was a new Tamil language movie from India and the music was composed by A R Rahman. I guess everyone knows him? Well, he is of the Jai Ho (and many other awesome songs) fame. Anyway, in the new movie (movie name is O Kadhal Kanmani, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Kadhal_Kanmani), A R Rahman used Loopy for composing a very nice song.
From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Kadhal_Kanmani_(soundtrack)):
"Parandhu Sellu Vaa" was composed using the iPad app "Loopy", which creates loops, since Ratnam wanted it to feature minimal orchestration. It is a slow, sensuous track. When the phrase "Nanaindhu Kollava" appears at the middle of the song, the minimal violin based orchestration begins and runs until the end of the track. The song has sixty odd non-repeating words.".
I thought this is a beautifully done song and in the movie, you can see the actor playing with the Loopy app on his iPad as the song begins. Just wanted to give a shout out to everyone behind Loopy for the great app they've created
