The incredible

Music and the brain of the child

According to numerous studies, the use of music as an additional sensory influx significantly improves speech functions in preschool children.

Any activity, in particular, intellectual, is provided by the functional work of the brain associated with the perception and processing of information.

One of the paradoxes of our time is that the functional capabilities of the human body have remained unchanged since ancient times, and you need to know and be able to disproportionately more than before.

At the limit of hearing

The French otolaryngologist Alfred Tomatis was the first to systematically investigate the influence of high frequency sounds on the human psyche.

This is due to the fact that during the period of intrauterine development, the child’s ears are filled with a fluid that conducts sound much better than air; in particular, high-frequency attenuations in a liquid are much less

To use his discoveries in practice, Tomatis immersed microphones and speakers protected by a film in the bathroom through which the work of the internal organs of a woman was broadcast. Thus, he simulated sound filtering through the mother’s placenta. Continue reading

Pages of history

The time has come to recall the story of the creation of the genius 2 concert of RAKHMANINOV.

This melody has no analogies – we are talking about the slow part of the second concert of Rachmaninov. The incredible power of the first part of the concert is replaced by a theme that, like steam over an evening river, fills the sound space

You can recall the striking picture of Levitan “Over Eternal Peace.” The beholder is in height, flying like Margarita at Bulgakov over the water surface and an island on the river, in outlines terribly similar to a cloud rushing above it. Continue reading
