I draw music

While listening to a piece of music, focus and try to “see” what the music portrays. If this, for example, is “The Seasons” by P. Tchaikovsky, then you may see an autumn landscape, a flying three, an awakening nature, a lark ringing in the sky. When listening to a song, one can always “finish” in the imagination what is more suitable for it: the wide expanse of the landscape, festivities …

Compare the sounds in the music with the colors in the painting or the melody with the lines in the picture. And to make it even more interesting, draw what you Continue reading

Revitalizing MIDI Drums

Many may rightly argue that the great advantage of sampled, electronic drums is that they don’t force you to use ‘realistic’ rhythmic patterns or drum sounds. Most dance music, for example, is created using incredibly fast, accurate patterns and sounds that have only the most superficial relation to something that can be reproduced by hitting a stretched drum skin with a wooden drumstick. The ability to create rhythms by programming, layer by layer and step by step, of course, offers great scope for imagination and freedom from technical and sound restrictions imposed when it is necessary to play and record a real drummer.

However, it happens that the sound and feeling of a real drum part is required, and circumstances – time, place, lack of funds or lack of a drummer – force people who themselves do not play the drums to “rattle” something in the sequencer.
