first of all, ravi avargale, i thought this question was too general to ask in the queries thread and also i thought the discussion might provoke a lot
of people who have seen recordings here to share their experiences and explaining the whole process clearly.
right from how the composer sets the tune and how he communicates to the singers to how he records the song, i wanted to know the whole thing. people who have seen recordings of IR or ARR, or who in general know what's exactly happening can contribute. iam especially curious to know details like how IR asks SJ to sing all those husky numbers and how he writes the score for percussion instruments etc.
any good guesses for the above queries would also be interesting.

I feel that in IR's case, it all begins on a writing pad attached to the harmonium where he just writes the music notation at one go(the prelude, the pallavi,anupallavi, interludes and charaNam, in that order). I have read that chinnathambi's songs were all written in 35 minutes, the time it takes the songs to play. This spontaneity is the most amazing thing every director has found in IR. Whereas in ARR's case, the music gets written layer over layer; the first layer gets done usually at a location abroad(Shankar's next movie has it's core music written in France). This method of scoring music is discernible in the wonderful orchestration and technology ARR brings to his music.

thanx for the info. i also like to know how do MD's exactly communicate to the singers? do they give them notes or do they sing the song themselves?
