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.

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
