Soft tones, soft music and gentle Instruments help emphasize the poetry and Expression. The use of Flute and Violin ( especially in the second Album) evoke the softness of the Poetic mood. The basic notes of most of the songs are similar, to keep the continuity but the mood and expression of every song is different from the other depicted through the voice modulation and the use of some high or low notes to express the emotion. Peaceful- was the word in my mind, while composing this album. Hope I have been able to evoke that”.
