Saturation point. Musical perception …

I really don’t know how objective my subjective pessimism is, but the ghost of a certain decline has stubbornly seemed to me for the past few years. Atrophy of musical perception? Decadence? Satiety? Perhaps the last. I recall one of Murphy’s laws: “The sum of the mind on the planet is a constant value, but the population is growing.” Paradoxical as it may seem, but perhaps from the general “Internetization” of the musical space, coupled with the increasing degree of accessibility of musical creation to the average layman, we no less lost than we won.

It’s bad when the Artist has no canvas and paints, they will tell me. Even worse, when every mediocrity has brushes and an easel, I object. As one of the laws of biology states, each population, which is an organic part of the Continue reading

The secrets of low-budget music creation technology

Removing the voice clips while singing

Often there is one and the same main problem with vocalists – constriction of the voice, as a result of tension of the vocal apparatus (in the neck) – external muscles that are not involved in the process of sound formation, but are always ready to come to the aid of the vocalist – to draw out one or another note, to correct intonation …
At the same time, it becomes difficult to control the voice and the sound quality leaves much to be desired …
But this is just the intervention of the external muscles and is not desirable …
The internal muscles located inside the larynx and participating in sound formation are able to independently control the vocal apparatus without unnecessary interference of the external muscles. Continue reading
