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 that is 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 no longer 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. It’s over.

About different sound engineers (sound producers)

If the sound engineer to whom you came, believes that there is a set of laws in the art of sound recording, and he is one of the elect who know them – run away from there. I reviewed a lot of literature and films on the techniques of mixing and mastering. I saw a huge number of obvious mistakes, but I repeat: There are no rules in art. As a result, some “errors” give a better result than “by the rules”. From all this it follows: do not become a lover of the “rules” yourself, let the sound producer do the work, do not put a cross on it. In the end, he may surprise you. Continue reading
