Auditory therapy of A. Tomatis (part 4)
Why Mozart? But why Mozart? Why not Bach, Beethoven, the Beatles? Mozart did not create the stunning effects that Bach's mathematical genius was capable of. His music does not stir…

Dark synth: dark synthetic revived the eighties
2010's can rightly be called the decade of nostalgia for the eighties. And nostalgia is not for discos, but for deeper signs of age — by culture, attitude, naivete, understanding,…

In music I am legend, and is an ass

In our time, every second – vocal Affairs expert. We watch “Voice”, “X-Factor”, compilations and master classes on YouTube of the best vocalists in the most different styles of music. We measure the ranges of favorite singers. Someone we blame – “not the one”, and someone give “still!”. This is not Ian Gillan, this is not Axel rose, and where is Whitney Houston?!

It seems that we are well versed in what and how to sing, what is euphonious and what is terrible. We don’t really know a damn thing about it.

Dark synth: dark synthetic revived the eighties

2010’s can rightly be called the decade of nostalgia for the eighties. And nostalgia is not for discos, but for deeper signs of age — by culture, attitude, naivete, understanding, and a feeling of impending future, and another fear of that future.

Today, the future has already come and turned out to be quite different from what was imagined thirty years ago. On the one hand it is good, and on the other — sad. Machines still do not fly, the galaxy is not inhabited, and artificial intelligence is not so intelligent. Modern “new sincerity” turned out to be more synthetic than synthetic postmodernism of the late twentieth century: the world is ruled by Finance, terror, wars, cataclysms and politics.
