The three levels of my existence

This is my room within the room. My life is more or less dependent on its three layers. The basement is the place for my suitcase, extra pair of footwears and sometimes things fallen from the above two floors. Dust gathers very fast on this level. My other two room mates, who stays in their own rooms, within our room, do broom it every alternate day while i sleep on its first floor. This floor is the arena for the most important activity in my life. Sleep. Seldom used as movie watchin table, with my feet stretched, trying to keep itself warm, on to the adjacent room; of our room. It also used as ironing table as well as dining table. The top floor holds all the essentials of my life. Toileteries, washed clothes, to be washed clothes, washed but not pressed and finally washed and pressed clothes, helmet, film dvds, newspaper and others. Its been one year and four months since i have been rectangled by this funny structure. My bunker bed. There is so much joy living within it as i have realised today, my life is beyond it. In the last 5 years my place, my room, my temporary abode has always been gettin smaller and smaller But life has new found meaning and depth. . .

Subject to Change- Live at Kyra- Bangalore

About the Band

We began as a motley bunch of us who just knew each other from seeing too much of each other through college. It’s been over a year since we got together to perform at an acoustic festival in Chennai, and the one thing that has established itself in our music, our “style” and us as a band is spontaneity and constant surprises; so the one thing we knew for sure was that we would morph and change all the time. We’re not entirely sure how we began, and we don’t know where we’re headed, but wherever it is, we’re having a blast getting there. That’s us, Subject to Change.

The band has a pretty mad mix of people and music; poor, talented and unemployed (Aakash and Toby), struggling, wonderful artist (Anisha), perennially broke academic (Anjana), rising star singer (Benny) and rock steady abe (Abraham). Somehow everything just comes together perfectly with our music, (thankfully). If we had to put a label to ourselves, we are an acoustic band, essentially 70’s and 80’s junkies, rooted in rock, folk, blues and rock ‘n’ roll, with swirls of r & b, indie, alternative and a healthy dose of indigenous music.

Subject to Change also seems to have a serious addiction to medleys that have just developed lives of their own! We began one night with Sting’s “Message in a bottle” and “King of Pain”, and in under 24 hours we had 20 songs- from MJ to the Doobie Brothers; Oasis to Tina Turner and we called it the “Deadly Medley”, and it has become something of a signature performance of ours. The medley fever spawned several other concoctions; little two- song medleys, a crazy blend of the black eyed peas and A.R.Rahman and so it goes. That’s not to say we’re obsessed with just combining other people’s genius, it’s just another unexpected oddity that makes our music.

Subject to Change is a relatively baby band; we each have a whole lot of ideas, but we’re just starting to put them together as “our” music. “Better Things” is our first step in the big (sometimes not so wonderful) world of original music, and hopefully that’s what the song will take us to. While the cosmos is busy arranging for our stardom, we’ll just keep doing what we do best, and y’all... can clap to the rest ;o)
