About recordings and studios

I was very surprised when I learned that the musicians know very little about the recording and the studios. But this knowledge is one of the most important in the creation of a musical product. Musicians (musicians, vocalists, composers) are not to blame for their ignorance, because they are often smart people. They just are not well aware.

Brain “under the jazz”

When jazz musicians improvise, areas that are responsible for self-censorship and inhibition of nerve impulses are turned off in their brain, and instead, areas that open the way for self-expression are turned on.

Jazz musicians, improvising, create their own unique riffs by turning off braking and turning on creativity.
Scientists from the Medical University, National Institute of Deafness speak about their interest in a possible neurological basis of a state close to the state of trance, into which jazzmen fall, starting spontaneous improvisations. Continue reading
