Electronic music owes its birth precisely to experiments with sound. Experiments with sound, or rather with sound vibrations, were essentially closer to science than to music. But it was precisely this experimental scientific work that was the beginning.
The coordinate system starts from zero. The decimal count starts with one. Two points of view that contradictory debate among themselves – when does the next century begin, 2000 or 2001? We will not find out the truth. I just want to share with you some discussions on the topic of modern electronic music, music of the late XX century, and music of this century.
Faced with people who are more or less connected with modern electric machines (synthesizers, music Continue reading
Interference is the phenomenon of amplification of oscillations at some points in space and weakening of oscillations at other points as a result of the superposition of two or more waves arriving at these points. Wave interference is possible if the phase difference of the waves is constant in time, i.e., the waves are coherent. Wave interference is valid for waves of any nature and frequency.
When recording from several microphones, it is necessary to take care of their phasing: the signals from the microphones should not fall into the recording path in the opposite phase, since this can lead to their mutual compensation up to the complete disappearance. Without noticeable distortion of the timbre caused by interference of direct and reflected signals, the microphone can be brought closer to any reflecting surface at a distance of at least 1-1.5 m.

The exercises of this system are aimed at releasing the voice from tension, at developing and strengthening it, primarily as a human instrument and as an actor’s tool. It is, rather, the release of a natural voice, rather than the development of voice technology. (But I think that it will be very useful for the vocalists to get some relaxation, release from the clamps.)
The goal of the Linklater method is to force the intellect to form a voice in direct contact with emotional impulses, without being an obstacle. Since the sounding voice is the result of physical processes, the muscles of the body must be free of tension in order to become susceptible to the impulses of the brain that generate speech. The natural voice is most noticeably blocked and distorted by physical stress. He also suffers from emotional, intellectual, and emotional stress. All these interferences are of a Continue reading
