Tanay Gajjar is an Indian sound recordist. He is popular in Bollywood.
Tanay Gajjar, born 2 September 1973 in Mumbai. He started his career with a bang in AVA Studio with the first song he recorded being from the blockbuster GADAR - EK PREM KAHANI. He went on to make magic with many many more films songs like Devdas, Monsoon Wedding, Black to the most recent LIFE OF PI. Having worked with some of the biggest names in Bollywood, he has gone from strength to strength in the industry. When you walk into the studio and first see him, you might well take him to be a rock musician who is there to lay down a track or two. Flamboyant tattoos, branded attire, a propensity for mean bikes and fast cars, are all part of Tanayâ€™s world as much as his passion for his work and love for music. His early training in tabla, and college time experiments with DJ-ing, have equipped him with a fine sense of music. On many occasions he has been known to have edited a cough or a splutter or an awkward phrase even before the artists have had time to come off the studio floor and into the control room to request him to edit the flawed segment. He maintains his lightning speed and efficiency even when it comes to classical music, where you donâ€™t have click tracks and BMPs to refer to when editing. It is a keen and sharp sense of music that you need in such cases more than anything else, and this he has in abundance, along with a devilish sense of humour and mischief. He can play pranks with the same speed that he edits and records, but fortunately the pranks are reserved only for those with whom he shares a comfort level.
