About the history of sound recording

Today, the main recording methods include:
– mechanical
– magnetic
– optical and magneto-optical sound recording
– solid state flash memory recording

Attempts to create devices that could reproduce sounds were made in ancient Greece. In the IV-II centuries BC e. there were theaters of self-propelled figures – androids. The movements of some of them were accompanied by mechanically extracted sounds, folding in a melody.

In the Renaissance, a number of different mechanical musical instruments were created that reproduce a particular melody at the right time: barrel organ, music boxes, boxes, snuff boxes. Continue reading

MIDI keyboard

We all know synthesizers, which are “electronic pianos” with many special effects and functions.

The whole charm of the synthesizer lies in the fact that it can autonomously act as a musical instrument, providing good sound from almost any timbre.

There are also disadvantages, the main of which is the relatively high cost of a good synthesizer and its significant dimensions.

The MIDI keyboard is deprived of this minus. it costs less and extensibility is better …
MIDI keyboards are, in fact, simplified versions of synthesizers that do not have built-in sounds, additional functions and effects.

Impressionism in music

Impressionism (French: impressionnisme, from impression – impression), the direction in art of the last third of the XIX – beginning of XX centuries.

The application of the term “impressionism” to music is largely arbitrary – musical impressionism does not constitute a direct analogy to impressionism in painting and does not coincide chronologically with it (its heyday was the 90s of the 19th century and the 1st decade of the 20th century).

Impressionism arose in France when a group of artists – C. Monet, C. Pissarro, A. Sis-lei, E. Degas, O. Renoir and others – made their original paintings at Parisian exhibitions of the 70s. Their art sharply differed from the smooth and faceless works of the then academic painters: the Impressionists came out of the walls of the workshops into the free air, learned to reproduce the play of living colors of nature, the sparkle of sunlight, the colorful highlights on the moving river surface, the motley color of the festive crowd. The painters used a special technique of runaway stains, smears, which seemed disordered near, and at a distance gave rise to a real feeling of a lively play of colors, bizarre overflows of light.
