Arch tributes to RD Burman with ‘The Burmandising Impact’ – an Innovative Musical Session

Jaipur, 13th August : Arch College of Design and Business organised a workshop and innovative music session ‘The Burmandising Impact’ on Friday, 13th of August for the School Principals of Jaipur city. The session was conducted by Anuraag S., Creative Head, ARCH College. As unique as its name, this session was based on the songs of the legendary RD Burman and taking lifelong lessons from his creative and innovative style of working converted into applicable management lessons.

On this occasion along with the ARCH Senior Leadership Team, Ms. Archana Surana, Founder and Director; Prof. Benoy Thoompunkal, Director – International; Prof. Bhargav Mistry, Dean -Design Culture and Pradyumna Vyas, Chief Advisor - Academic Affairs & Alliance at ARCH College and Senior Advisor, CII; Board of Director, WDO; Former Director, National Institute of Design (NID) were present.

In workshop, Anuraag bisociated the work of RD Burman and shared 11 ‘learnings’ from the Bollywood music and explained each theory with a song, finding deeper learnings and a different perception of it, which inspired the participants to think out of the box and way beyond their years.

Talking about the unique session on music, Ms. Archana Surana, Founder & Director, Arch College of Design and Business said, “Music is a teacher in itself. It helps us enhance the learning processes with empathy and respect. As we at Arch believe in all-round development of the students, we keep on organising such art and musical evenings for them to get rejuvenated by listening and feeling melodious music and get back to studies the next day.”

Putting light on Pancham’s music, Anuraag said that it is often said that true genius lies in simplicity. No one embodied that spirit better than Pancham Da. There were incredibly intense and complex compositions like ‘Chingari Koi Bhadke’ from the super hit 1970 classic ‘Amar Prem’. However, there were also songs like ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ from the film ‘1942: A Love Story’, which consists of one melody that repeats right through the song. Receptive to new ideas, treating fellow artists with empathy and respect and constantly seeking inspiration from everyone around – working with Pancham was an exercise in collaborative brilliance.

An orientation session for the new students will also be organised tomorrow at Arch.
