Interview with B. Maisnam
Club Muzik's ARTISIA - voice of the stars

Club Muzik *



B Maisnam is an upcoming artist mostly known for his appealing music videos. He is one of the most trending star among the youth here in Manipur

Q 1. What were you before getting into music and video makings, what influenced you?
B Maisnam: I was pursuing my engineering in CSE at SRM Chennai and I passed out on 2010. Since from my teen days, I was greatly influenced by a sub-culture known as Hip-Hop. Eminem stood out among all the talented artistes as a rapper. Eminem mostly influence me because I respected how he came to be from a fatherless son who has gone through many hardships and struggle to become the most popular rap artist known today.

Q2. What's cooking in your production banner these days?
B Maisnam: Since many admirers love my work I have many engagements under my production with 8 projects which is coming this October. To mention a few of my personal projects will be MOVE ON, EMA and NEVER GONE which is based upon my own personal struggle. After NEVER GONE I would be behind the scenes promoting young artistes and presenting new talented art lovers since I also want to promote our indigenous cultures and talents around the world.

Q3. How is your learning process to music and video?
B Maisnam: Since I was a music lover and wanted to make videos to communicate with the audiences. Me, in my graduation days were my finest since I was out of the state and was exposed to much new things and advancement. I dedicated myself into taking online classes at NYFA (New York Film Academy) which help me do research into my music and video making. Also YouTube has been my Pandora's Box which has enticed me into a whole new possibility and educational advantages. YouTube as a whole is a medium where anyone who has talent can show the world what he is made off. Besides this many educational lessons can also be learned from it along with the songs and the movies.

Q4. A picture speaks a thousand words. Share your views on visual needs of a song/music?
B Maisnam: I think it is very important for visual communication to be in music. Because, the work which an artist creates translate a message which is reflected from the society and through visualization an artist can give a complete message to the society. Besides this, visual is also a form of platform for the artist to promote his work and himself/herself. Since the audiences will assess their desires on the artist.

Q5. What makes you different and unique from the rest? Give us a sign?
B Maisnam: I have a belief and a principle that I would give my whole effort into the works I am passionate about. The works I do is where I find serenity and completeness, my utter concentration and whole heartily putting my best to deliver my work piece to my admirers is what I do. As I have a saying "MY PRODUCTION-MY RULE, MY LAB-MY OWN CREATION" which I work hard to deliver and I would say that the uniqueness is in the appreciation from my admirers.

Q6. Your super special thing in music and instruments you can play?
B Maisnam: As a music lover and an Alternative HIP-HOP artist my special thing about music is how I relate my life with music and communicate it out to the society. The instrument that I can play is Keyboard but I mostly work on electronic software instrument to compose my music.

Q7. What is your preference view on digital music artist to physically manual musicians?
B Maisnam: As a candle light need both of its wax and thread to work together to illuminate. A digital music artist and a physical manual musician cannot be separated from one another in order to give the world a masterpiece. But since my genre is more applicable to digital form of music, I mostly work as a digital music artist.

Q8. Share us your experiences on being worked with other artists?
B Maisnam: I have been working with a lot of artist but picking a few to mention is JUNE NEELU in NANGDI LAKLAROI and KOROU. Besides being an artist at work she also has supported me like a sister, friend and family. She is a down to earth kind of a person who loves making music and devotes herself into her music. Young artist DAVID SOIBAM in YENGLAMKHO is also one of my close companion, friend, brother and family. He is multi-talented young artist and a composer, rapper and cinematographer under my production. Lastly but not the least, Da DENISH SHARMA is an icon in Manipur music limelight. Getting an opportunity to work with such a great and talented artist was a good experience. The song NUNGSHI SAKTAM was an experimental fusion classical and Alternative HIP-HOP which was a success and experimental triumph in these ever changing trends of globalisation.

Q9. Some simple but useful techniques you use while filming?
B Maisnam: As a cinematographer I use some general technique such as good framing and pan techniques few to mention. I visualise through the lens the end result which will come after the post production.

Q10. As a video maker share us what you wanted to explore here in Manipur?And the limitations you see?
B Maisnam: Manipur has many hidden surprises and I, through my work have come to experience many possibilities. Exploring scenic beauties never been touched through the lens of a camera and work with young artistes who are eager for professional platform and upbringing. Other traditional and cultural aspect of exploration would be the classical fusion with Da DINESH SHARMA. I am also planning to work on an ethnic folk fusion to show that music has no boundaries.

Limitation wise, I would point out that it would be a great gain for the state to have a film city. Since the industry here in Manipur is rising at a great pace, its development needs to be established for it to continue flourishing. Here the production follows quantity over quality but I would like to value both at the same level.

Q11. Is it promotion or professionalism you do from video making to music production?
B Maisnam: It is a bit of both in my profession. As working on my production with young artists I am promoting them as well as I to let the world know of our young talents and its thriving industry on the rise which will help create more jobs for unemployed youths and follow a certain profession of professionalism. Professionalism is also what I do because I am promoting a certain work culture where one should dedicate his/her whole belief into the work. This in turn will set a trend of promotion and professionalism among the rising youth.

Q12. How do you enjoy your moments in works?
B Maisnam: Since I love doing my work and the efforts I put into making it, leaves me exhausted and that is where I find my consolidation. My work is where I also bond with my crew who have been besides me through all this time of hardship and challenges.

Q.13. What do we call you, Video or Music?
B Maisnam: Both.
