    Groove #3
    An experimental fusion of live music and studio sounds; an open air theatre and a few hundred youngsters waiting to go berserk; and the man whose voice marks the centre of an electronic funk and pop band: Meet Benny Dayal, this time on vocals for Groove # 3, which performed live at Festember 2012, NIT-Trichy’s flagship intercollegiate event. Catching up with him a little ahead of his show, touted to be a maximum crowd puller at Festember, Metroplus got him talking about the band scene in the state, the audience for non-film music, his involvement with three distinct bands and of course, his mainstream releases. “While this is my second time at NIT Trichy (he performed at NIT once in 2009), my act for tonight is strictly non-film music,” he says. Geared with around 16 numbers, the band will play music that is original and technically sound. “And it’s outdoors this time,” he adds referring to the newly erected open air theatre set up. While his involvement with western music bands dates back to his days at the Madras Christian College, Benny is presently an active member of three bands: “Subject to Change has been around for a while now, but Functuation and Groove # 3 were formed about a year ago,” he says. As for the music scene in Tamil Nadu, he feels there are a lot of great bands in the circuit these days. “Bands like Junkyard Groove, Skrat, Pajama Conspiracy, Captains of Hook, Grey Shack and Staccato and Wolf’s Lair are coming up with some great original music,” he says. While the number of female band members continues to graze the lower end, he notes that bands like Staccato and Pajama Conspiracy have female members. Shoving aside the idea of band loyalty, Benny feels working out of three completely different mindsets deepens his understanding of music. “When you work closely with other musicians that match your calibre, you tend to move towards music that is original and not shy of experiments,” he says, adding that he has been venturing into song writing as well. So, what kind of an audience exists for music that comes tagged original slash experimental? “At the moment it is a niche crowd, which is intelligent about music,” he says. Admitting that at some places there is a palpable reluctance to accept new music, he says it is painful to see people from the audience walking away as soon as something new is played. However, Benny is hopeful that very soon “more people who can appreciate new forms of music will make up the audience.” On why film songs are such popular requests even at strictly non-film concerts, he thinks it might be because people know what to expect. “Often when you perform an original, you tell yourself it’s good if the audience is still listening to you!” Having just finished a stint with Coke Studio, where he performed alongside the likes of Karsh Kale and Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Benny says he is presently working on a collective album for Karsh Kale. “While I’ve shifted base to Mumbai and am concentrating on Bollywood more, I do have a couple of upcoming Tamil releases as well,” he says. We wrap up with the hope that the night’s crowd has an open ear.
