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

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

Effects for sound processing. Composition processing

This article discusses the principles of operation of various devices designed for sound processing.

About how and in which cases it is correct and it is necessary to use them we will discuss further.
The effects considered in the article are divided into the following categories:

Time transformations: delay, echo, reverb, various delays using modulation (phaser, frequency modulation, chorus, flanger).
Frequency Conversion: various types of equalizers.
Amplitude transformations: compressor (limiter, maximizer), expander, amplitude modulation (ripper).
Other conversions: vocoder.

Temporary Conversions
