2018: what happened to the ear

To sum up the musical results of the year – every time the lesson is not for the faint of heart. Certain things can be said at once, without looking at the calendar and without straining imagination: well, for example, a lot of new music came out, but most of it did not cause much interest, quite a lot – listened to on rewind… But surely there were records that were delayed in your playlist.

Although the child in utero hears the voice of his mother is somewhat different than in reality. The thing is that the mother’s voice passes to the child through the amniotic fluid, which play the role of a sound filter. This filter allows to pass only high frequency sounds – more than 8 thousand Hz., which form in us the very structure of the “native language”. Continue reading
