India Today - - SMART EDUCATION | TRENDS - —Harshita Das

MKaran­vir Singh has been pas­sion­ate about since child­hood. He could play the drums by the time he was four, and by 13, he had ven­tured into song­writ­ing. Once he fin­ished col­lege, Karan­vir started pro­duc­ing and per­form­ing mu­sic. By 2015, Ker­ano (his stage name) had ar­rived. That was when he launched his de­but track, Here I Stand, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Pol­ish artist Tom Swoon.

Sound of Mu­sic Karan­vir be­lieves a ca­reer in any field is what you make of it. “I could be a mu­si­cian who is com­pletely okay with play­ing small shows and get­ting paid the bare min­i­mum or I could be an IT pro­fes­sional work­ing a 9 to 5 at a cor­po­rate firm. In an un­con­ven­tional ca­reer, you need to un­der­stand how to make it lu­cra­tive, how to live off your pas­sion.”

USIC IS THE ONLY THING

Creative Streak “I learnt ev­ery­thing my­self, whether it was pro­duc­ing or mix­ing or mas­ter­ing. When you can rely on your own in­stincts and skills to cre­ate a home­grown method of mak­ing mu­sic, the process be­comes eas­ier and fun,” he says. And it is this home­grown method of mak­ing mu­sic that Karan­vir hopes to teach as­pir­ing mu­si­cians at the newage mu­sic school, Kamp 1, he has launched in Gurugram.
