Students of the National Institute of Technology, Karnataka (NITK) at Surathkal on Wednesday 29th Feb 2012, launched a music album to mark their college fest this year. Besides launching it on the first day of the fest, the students also gave the album the events name Incident 2012. Kartikeya, convenor of the institutes’ music club and the musical events at the fest, said, the album Incident 2012 has eight songs, of which three are in English, two in Kannada, one in Hindi and two instrumental tracks.
Those who performed in the album include Kartikeya (lead guitars / bass), Nakul Abhyankar (vocals), Vinayak Singh (vocals/rhythm guitar), Surhud Vaidya (bass), Mukul Srivastava (lead guitars), Bevin Matthew (keyboards), Akanksha Sharma (vocals), Anirudh Sabnis (keyboards), Andrea D.Souza (keyboards), Karthik Holla (vocals), Ashwathi Shenoi (vocals) and Venkatesh Shenoy. One of the tracks, Embrace Yourself, was contributed by The Phlegmatic, a four-member band comprising three current students and an alumnus of the institute. Nakul Abhyankar, a final year mechanical engineering student who composed the events theme track Incident Jingle, said; it’s a matter of pride that we are using our own music during our fest for promo, videos and the like. Kartikeya said, “Compared to Pankaja and the most recent Kolaveri, Tawa Mele (one of the two Kannada songs in the album) is also a trendy dance number. It is composed by Nakul Abhyankar who has used elements of Sandalwood music wisely. The song has popular thapang beats as well as sweet old jazz music”. Set Me Free an English number was written by Akanksha Sharma, a third year info tech student. Bevin Matthew, a third year mechanical engineering student, helped her out with the composing work and the recording process. “One of the Hindi songs, Panchhiyaan was composed by Vinayak Singh, a final year info-tech student. Invoking Nataraja, a techno track created by Venkatesh Shenoy is a semi-devotional track with quick beats. Copies of the album were distributed among students at the fest. It can also be purchased from local music stores”, said Kartikeya.
