Vocal slaves of show business
Pop artist Maxim Fadeev recently admitted to the audience that he is a real performer of some songs released by his production center and which have become hits. A particular piquancy of the intrigue was given by the fact that many took the high vocals that sound in the compositions as female. I must admit that the unusual PR move worked. The producer who recently broke up all his “stars” was once again able to quickly attract attention. Although many people made this story ponder over the question of what, in fact, is contemporary pop art, if it allows for such a good “change” of stars that it becomes difficult to distinguish even a man from a woman.
The composition “So Long” of the MALFA project after its release immediately aroused a lot of questions among the fans. Who owned the high voice that performed it was kept secret for some time. Many decided that perhaps one of the wards of the producer is Olga Seryabkina. Recent scandals surrounding the production center have led to a complete “reboot” of the project.
Recall that with the light hand of Maxim Fadeev, our stage was enriched by the following well-known names: Linda, Glyuk’oZa, Katya Lel, Elena Temnikova, Julia Savicheva, the Silver group and many others. After a recent scandal with Nargiz Zakirova, Max Fadeev decided to completely reconsider his work as a producer. At a recent recital, he also revealed the intrigue of an unusual track. The audience saw that in fact the creator of the MALFA label performs the hit “So Long” itself, which caused them a real delight.
It is interesting that several years ago Vocaloid MALFA was created in this production center – one of the first in our country. This smart software allows you to change the voice of the donor singer, creating a real electronic artist. With the help of similar technologies, several completely artificial vocaloid stars have been performing very successfully in Japan for many years. Maxim Fadeev himself did not disclose the technical details of creating the hit at the concert, telling only about his participation in the recording: “I did not want to reveal this secret until the very end, but still decided”. However, the network is discussing the option that his voice was changed using this program.
In this case, the example of the Hi-Fi group is recalled. Created in 1998, the band sang for ten years in the voice of its producer Pavel Yesenin, and the singer from Novosibirsk, Mitya Fomin, became the frontman of the group. The reason why this substitution occurred is very commonplace. Pavel Yesenin explained the situation as follows: “Until 2009, I sang all Hi-Fi songs on my own. Why? Everything is simple: in order to succeed, it is necessary that everything in the project coincides perfectly – music, external image, vocals. Mitya has vocals, but I didn’t like him. ”
Although the most famous “vocal slave” of the 90s was, of course, singer Margarita Sukhankina – the performer of all the “golden” hits of the Mirage group. “Music connected us”, “Stars are waiting for us”, “This night” – these songs are still remembered and loved by many fans of the group, but still not everyone knows what their girlfriend recorded, photos of which have never appeared on cassettes and disks .
During the creation of the group, Margarita Sukhankina was a student at the Moscow Conservatory and was preparing to become an opera singer. Record several songs “in the style of Jeanne Aguzarova” she persuaded her friend. An amateur group “Activity Zone” a year later received the name “Mirage” and turned into a professional project. A soloist with a conservative education recorded several compositions, which were destined to become hits later, but then she was forced to leave the group. After many years, Margarita spoke about this:
“My teacher from the conservatory, which gave me classical vocals, guessed from the changes in my voice that I sang not only opera parts, and threatened to be expelled if I continued to do this. I realized that I didn’t want to destroy my career because of some strange project. I asked the guys to forget about my participation and never to tell anyone about it.
Probably, it would have ended this way if after some time my voice had not sounded from all the music tents, singing songs on behalf of the Mirage group. In addition, all over the country traveled with tours of various compositions of the team. And everyone, like a blueprint, performed under the soundtrack with my voice. ”
