Vocal marriage correction

Professionalism comes over the years, but I want to sing well now.

And now the vocalist (this is at best) is already at the microphone, the red recording lamp lights up, and the song is pouring?

Ah, if what was recorded would sound the same as in his own head. In practice, this is far from the case. In some cases, the result is poor. It was noticed that even good vocalists, putting on studio headphones, turn into current black grouses, who can neither hear themselves nor the phonograms (the sound engineer must ensure that the vocalist can hear himself in the headphones!). Simply put, a recorded track is a marriage. The vocal part is sung out of tune. There are overstated or understated notes, and not so much timbre. And with a rhythm like that? Well, in general, it would be necessary to re-sing. Sometimes it turns out to re-write, and sometimes those present in the studio understand that the track that was Continue reading

About the Philharmonic

Philharmonic (from the Greek. Phileo – I love and harmonia – harmony, “I love harmony”) – in some countries: a music society or an institution that organizes concerts, promotes the development and promotion of musical art.

Philharmonic societies appeared in the cities of Europe and America (Petersburg, Moscow, Berlin, London, New York and others) in the 19th century, and they mainly promoted symphonic music. In the 20th century, in the socialist countries of Europe, philharmonic societies became state organizations – by 1976, there were 136 philharmonic societies in the USSR.

In 1859, A. G. Rubinstein organized the Russian Musical Society in Petersburg. The intensive development of concert activities required the creation of new musical and educational organizations. Continue reading

Sounds that are not

We listen to a cassette of spiritual music – Tibetan monks or Gregorian singing. If you listen carefully, you can hear how the voices merge, forming one pulsating tone.

This is one of the most interesting effects inherent in some musical instruments and the chorus of people singing in approximately the same key – the formation of beats. When voices or instruments converge in unison, the beats slow down, and when they diverge, they accelerate.

Perhaps this effect would remain in the sphere of interest only of musicians, if not for the researcher Robert Monroe. He realized that despite the widespread fame in the scientific world of the effect of beats, no one investigated their effect on a person’s state when listening through stereo headphones. Monroe discovered that when listening to sounds of close frequency on different channels (right and left), a person feels the so-called binaural beats, or binaural beats. Continue reading
