Singer and composer Rachita Arora recently joined R.K. Madhavan and Surveen Chawla starrer web series ‘Decouped’ and it took them about six months to compose the theme and background score.

Rachita has previously composed for the popular series ‘Sacred Games’ and has also composed for ‘Karenjat Kaur’. He also composed the background score of the film ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’.

Talking about the research work she does before composing the music and the different styles she used to create the score for ‘decoupled’, she says, “Before writing a single note, I can spend days, weeks, or months researching ideas and getting into the mental space of the film and story. Film-related themes to get into the world of the story.” But can read books or articles and then find the hidden music in it. I’m more into the fusion of different contrasting genres, and ‘decoupled‘ I’ve experimented with jazz, blues and orchestral music.

Rachita made her Bollywood debut in 2017 with the neo-noir thriller ‘Gurgaon’ and after that, she composed the music for the song ‘Chal Tu Apna Kaam Kar’ in the film ‘Newton’.

What genre do they find most challenging when it comes to composing music?

She replies: “Making a score for a comedy is a risky task, there’s a thin line between being funny and slapstick such that if you overdo it it will end up sounding a cliché, and if you undercook it So you will do injustice to the scene.”

Rachita also composed and composed the background score for Discovery Channel’s documentary film ‘Mumbai Pani Mafia’. He has also composed music for several plays of the National School of Drama.
