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.

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.

This is its difference from homophony (from the Greek “homo” – “equal”), where only one voice is the leading one, while others accompany it (as, for example, in Russian romance, Soviet mass song or dance music).

Polyphony is divided into types:

Sub-polyphony, in which along with the main melody its echo sounds, that is, slightly different options. Characteristic for Russian folk song. Continue reading
