“The creative satisfaction that comes from scoring for a feature film is un parallel. The reach is immense, as is the beauty of hearing your score in a theatre. It’s almost like a journey that you undertake”. Keeping that thought, from songs across genres and moods, to background scores ranging from orchestral to new age, scoring for the movies is something thats very high on Vipin’s priorities.
From catchy signature tunes, to assisting and highlighting the moments and communication in a 30 second spot, music in commercials is rightly recognised as a crucial input, and composing for commercials, is a niche craft indeed. Brands compete with each other for getting a distinctive recall and mind space, and music can play a critical role in doing just that.
With most of the content on television being sub standard and downright stupid, Vipin has chosen to stay away barring a few opportunities which were exciting. The critically acclaimed tele series Powder is one of them.
He has also scored for a few short films, mostly produced by FTII.
The Vipin Mishra Project see’s Vipin collaborating with various musicans to perform and record songs in the studio.

Hey folks. Its been a good year for travel this year and I hope to write about it when I can.
With a Jeep trip with my old man across the Kutch region, to a motorcycle trip to some coffee and tea growing hilly parts of the south, a repeat trip of the same with family by road, another motorcycle trip to some crazy routes across Ladakh and recently a great multi day trek from Kibber across the Parang La to finally come out at Karzok, there’s a lot to update!!
The short two and a half hour flight and a very affordable country in general, Sri Lanka was the perfect ad hoc spur of the moment choice for a weeks vacation away from Mumbai.
The travellers: my wife, our 5 year old child, and myself.
A trip to Goa, regardless of the season, means one thing for sure….. weight gain! No Kiddin’!
Most of the food is good, as long as you stick with the local or fusion dishes. The booze is deliciously priced, and the beautiful weather that we were lucky to run into just tops it all into a great vacation. So yeah, bumming on the beach while you eat and drink and snooze and sleep, what would you expect… not a six pack!! Right?
Even the drive out of Mumbai is something that I enjoy. It gets meditative beyond a point. Continue reading
Being a self taught musician, and growing up on a staple music diet of hard rock and guitar driven music, I am one of the many who didn’t read and write “staff notation”.
Now that doesn’t necessarily mean that musicians like myself don’t know about music theory.
We sure do. From scales and modes, to chordal knowledge , to time signatures. But all of this is in my case, was in a very “Guitar Tablature” or “Notes” sort of a way.
Which was fine, cause most of the times, we work with softwares where programming a tune is pretty flexible and we work with musicians who are also very adept at “hearing” the part , and then performing it, on the tune.
But all of this changed for me when I did my first full length feature score, and my Director and I decided to go pretty much the traditional orchestral route for the most part.
Given the genre, I was sure that I was going to get a section to play the string parts : Violins, Violas, Cellos, Double Bass.
And as large a section as I could afford, who does music to make money…right?!!
And with a little bit of learning on how to get a pretty accurate music sheet from the software, I was set. Continue reading
