Slumdog Millionaire: A Score that Broke Boundaries
In the Academy Award winning score for Slumdog Millionaire, A. R. Rahman combined electronic music, Indian classical music, orchestral music, and other styles into one unified score that takes these styles out of their context. Rahman also used a unique compositional process, which combined Bollywood and Hollywood styles of film scoring with a heavy empahsis on collaboration. In my thesis, I would like to explore how Rahman weaves these different ideas to create the score.
