"Maniratnam once said -Ilaiyaraaja would look at the scene once and immediately start giving notes to his assistants."
A strict disciplinarian as far as professional work is concerned - Ilaiyaraja begins his recordings sharp at 7AM in the morning every day and if any artist is a minute late - the gates of Prasad Studio are mercilessly closed!
"Ilaiyaraaja would look at the scene once, and immediately start giving notes to his assistants hovering around him, who would collect the notes for their instrument and go to their places. When the orchestra played out the notes, they would be perfect, not just in harmony but also in timing — the background score would commence exactly where it should and end at the exact place required. Ilaiyaraaja is a genius, who could compose music with just one look at the scene."
