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. Continue reading

Ancient musical miracle: Throat singing from shamanistic rituals to the modern scene

It may seem to people unfamiliar with this art form that the sounds they hear are actually made by a musical instrument. It is difficult to imagine that human ligaments are capable of this, especially when masters of throat singing do the almost impossible – they begin to sing with two voices at once. Some types of such peculiar music are not even amenable to musical notation. Researchers believe that the peoples of Siberia and Central Asia, owning this art, are the guardians of the oldest method of sound production lost in other countries.

Listening to throat singing, you can catch many sounds: the murmur of water, echo, rockfall in the mountains, the whistle of the wind, the voices of birds and animals. The basis of this ancient art was the onomatopoeia of nature. We can say that this is the very foundation of music, its historical roots. Ancient hunters lured prey like this, nomad cattle breeders controlled their pets with their voices, ministers of ancient religious cults communicated laryngeal sounds with the gods, because a simple human voice was not suitable for such unusual purposes.

MUSIC GROUP – NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR MUSICIAN

Of course, the exchange of ideas, experience and communication with like-minded people in joint music-making is already a very significant advantage of playing in a musical group, which to this extent are not always available to solo artists who are constantly working on personal projects. However, there are several other advantages:

Ease of speaking to the public

Of course, you can speak to anyone who wants to speak and does not hesitate to do so. But psychologically, even the most unperturbed person, when speaking from the stage, is easier with allies behind him. What can we say about creative people striving for self-expression?
But in addition to removing psychological discomfort, being part of a musical group makes it possible to perform at various festivals and club venues, where a certain performance format is important. Continue reading
