The music of the ancients. Primeval music

The origin of the word “music” is known to everyone: from the Greek “art of muses.” But the question of how this type of art arose was controversial in the last century and the beginning of our century. Some researchers were inclined to believe that music was born from a word excited by human speech; others attributed its origins to the singing of birds and the voices of animals; others saw its beginning in the rhythmic work of people, magic spells, etc.

It is difficult for us to imagine the music of primitive people. After all, then there was no written language and no one could record neither the words of the songs, nor their sounds. We can get the most general idea of ​​this music partly from the surviving traces of the lives of people of those distant times (for example, Continue reading

Prelude. About Prelude

Prelude (from lat. Prae … – before and ludus – game) – a short piece of music that does not have a strict form. At the time of its inception, the prelude always preceded the longer, more complex and strictly formalized work (hence the name), but subsequently the composers began to write preludes as independent works. Ostinato is often found in preludes; in general, preludes are similar in style to improvisation.

Prelude is an old genre and, at the same time, unusually sensitive to the latest requirements of the time, allowing many author’s decisions and interpretations. His fate is unusual: having arisen in the 15th century, the word “prelude” itself has repeatedly changed its meaning. Initially, this was a small instrumental introduction to some composition, sometimes written in advance, but most often improvised directly during the performance. Not constrained by the strict framework of the rules, it prepared the mood of the future play and at the same time allowed the performer to demonstrate inventiveness and virtuosity.

Improvisation, as well as the dominance of one image and a single, purely figurative type of texture, Continue reading

What is an equalizer? The use of equalizers

Equalizer (English equalize – “equalize”, the general abbreviation is “EQ”), a timbre block is a device or computer program that allows you to increase or decrease the volume of individual zones of the frequency range, equalize the amplitude-frequency characteristic of the sound signal, that is, adjust it (signal) amplitude selectively, depending on frequency.

Born in the 30s, the equalizer is the oldest and most commonly used sound processing by sound engineers. Today, the market lacks a variety of instruments for timbre correction – from a simple bass-treble corrector of the 50s to a sophisticated multi-band equalizer with perfect parameters. At its core, the equalizer is a few electronic filters that allow you to change the amplitude-frequency response of a sound device. Over the past half century, the equalizer circuitry has improved tremendously, trying to satisfy the increased demands of the audio industry. Continue reading
