An enhancer, an exciter and a tube amplifier – what is common?

Exciter (from the English Exciter), also called harmonic exciter (harmonic exciter), psychoacoustic processor (psychoacoustic processor), enhancer (enhancer) and acoustic exciter (aural exciter) – a processing device used for the harmonious synthesis of high-frequency signals using thin harmonic distortion.

This harmonic synthesis is to create higher harmonics based on lower signal frequencies. Typically, noise is not present in different frequency bands in equal amounts, and harmonics obtained from a clean frequency band will be clearer. Less commonly, exciters (enhancers) are used to synthesize low-frequency harmonics in order to simulate deep bass.

Sound processed by an exciter becomes more “pure”, “transparent”, “voluminous”, “warmer” than the original, and also spatially more localized. All these properties are enclosed in quotation marks, since they are perceived by a person subjectively. Also, subjectively, this is similar to adding high frequencies, although an increase in level is barely measurable. 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

Enhancing cathartic experiences with music

Just one look at a person who has in his memory a difficult experience, actualized in the present, in order to determine the presence of this experience. Usually, a person tries to hide an emotion breaking out to realization, possibly interpreting it as negative.

But tensions arising in a person who suppresses his emotions help to destroy the “primary essence”, which increases the estrangement from most people and others (Lowen, 1975). According to Lowen, the “primary essence” is the pleasure of life, the source of which is freedom of movement and lack of tension in the body.

In the modern world of “distress” and stimulants, the acquired automatism of controlling bodily stresses does not allow one to have enough freedom of movement for the timely response of bodily stresses. In many cases of therapeutic practice, the most effective methods remain, which include elements of catharsis (from the Greek. Catharsis – purification). Continue reading
