MASTER OF MELODY - Indian Express - India  If there ever were a musical sorcerer, then his shoes would fit Oliver Sean to  a tee. A rhythmic illusionist and conjurer of rhyme and substance, Sean is  simply sensational. At the trivial age of four, Sean assumed the role of a  singer. At eight, he was strumming away on his guitar and when eleven, Sean  waxed into quasi-lyricist. He is the real deal, the whole shebang when one  adverts music.   Sean doesn't conform to fads and vogues of the times. Contrary to the  remarkably sweeping trend of collaboration observed in the music industry at  present, Sean isn't too big on collaboration. "Though I wouldn't mind  collaborating with established producers, I am chary of the messages in my  songs transposing due to many cooks spoiling the broth," he says.   His upcoming English album Getting Around, is also set to release this year.  The lyrics, being deep and soft, are intrinsically about peace and love. Anent  the title of the album, he says, "A single child, I lived a protected childhood  assuming the world to be all hunky-dory until I encountered deceptive,  two-faced people along my way. Having grown-up and learnt it the hard way, now  I have gotten around to know life's ugly secrets."   Though he is mixed up with his lineage, belonging to multiple  ethnicity-Italian, Portuguese and Indian heritage-, having grown up in Goa, he  considers Goa as his hometown and his perennial destination for peaceful  contemplation. He also has a penchant for animals and looks to it that ten per  cent of his albums' sales revenue goes towards animal welfare and to stop fur  trade.   Having studied to be a sound recording engineer in the US, he is an industry in  himself, writing, arranging and composing all the tracks in his albums by  himself. Categorising his music as acoustic rock, basically world music, he  sometimes commixes it with music from ethnic instruments. But then again, this  isn't his conscious decision. "My music attempts to blend genres. It blends  rock-and-roll with rock music, blends the music of 60s with that of the 90s.  While arranging music, more and more instruments keep coming into the picture  and it's always an artistic choice to accommodate these instruments," Sean  explicates.   This being his first time playing in Pune, he is assured of a large audience  due to the large number of colleges in the city. At the concert here on  Saturday, his fans could look forward to some music from his new album Getting  Around, a few chosen previous hits and some classic songs like Knocking on  Heaven's Door à la mode de Dylan.   His fabulous feats have included the French government including his  composition The Libran Mind as the theme song for its tourism campaign of the  Massif region. Entirely instrumental, this was uncharted territory for the  singer-songwriter. Sean is also the owner of two recording companies - W.O.A  Records and Sevenz Records. He figures in a band called the Oliver Sean Band.  Though for gag's sake, it is also sometimes called Oliver Sean and the  Longhaired band.   His multilingual world rock album Darna Chod Do, a commingling of world music  and mainstream rock, saw him delving into Hindi songs. The ideas and  compositions, being his own, he collaborated with several lyricists on the  album.
