Sw in dance music

Somehow I thought about one thing: sometimes one bass, a drummer and a pair of cymbals are enough to make people want to twitch from this primitiveness! Why it happens? What is the reason? In the process of studying this phenomenon, the theory of kacha was born, about which a series of articles is devoted. I can’t vouch that after reading them, your compositions will become hits, but I would be happy for that.
First of all, briefly about the theory of Kacha. Qual is a term coined by me that relates to drive. Kach can be part of the drive, but the drive can be without kacha. Qach first of all is a concept characterizing “dance”. Continue reading

Sounds that do not exist

This is one of the most interesting effects inherent in some musical instruments and a chorus of people singing in about the same key — the formation of beats. When voices or instruments converge in unison, the beats slow down, and when they diverge, they accelerate.
Perhaps this effect would remain in the sphere of interests of only musicians, if not the researcher Robert Monroe. He realized that despite the beating effect widely known in the scientific world, no one had studied their impact on the human condition when listening through stereo headphones. Monroe discovered that when listening to sounds of similar frequency through different channels (right and left), a person feels the so-called binaural beats, or binaural rhythms.
For example, when one ear hears a pure tone with a frequency of 330 vibrations per second, and the other a pure tone with a frequency of 335 vibrations per second, the hemispheres of the human brain begin to work together, and as a result he hears beats with a frequency of 335 – 330 = 5 vibrations per second, but this is not a real external sound, but a “phantom”.

Music in your head

Before modern neuroimaging techniques were developed, researchers studied the musical abilities of the brain, observing patients (including famous composers) with various disruptions in their activity due to injury or stroke. So, in 1933, the French composer Maurice Ravel developed symptoms of local brain degeneration – a disease accompanied by atrophy of certain sections of brain tissue. The composer’s mental abilities did not suffer: he remembered his old works and played scales well. But he could not compose music. Speaking about his alleged opera “Joan of Arc”, Ravel confessed: “Opera is in my head, I hear it, but I will never write it. Continue reading
