The world of sounds has always fascinated Jecin George, which is why at age nineteen, he took off to Mumbai to study sound engineering. Later, working in a studio, assisting as an engineer, he got introduced to music director Mejo Joseph. That meeting was the key that opened up professional doors to him. He went on to do the BGM of the film Traffic as a programmer, following that up with Bachelor Party, after which he started assisting music director Gopi Sunder where he started working on orchestration. The collaboration with Gopi yielded him a wealth of expertise and gave him the confidence to strike out on his own.
Asha Black was Jecin’s first independent music venture, for which he composed the music. The advantage was that the film was bilingual—Tamil and Malayalam, so he could compose the music for both the versions. Then came a break of two years, but the hiatus has not impacted his prospects and Jecin is flush with interesting projects like Charminar, Kantharam and Poru. What has Jecin excited is that all the three films demand different treatments, which has the music director in him in experimentation mode.
