Physics of sound

This text is optional. Especially for those people who are not going to seriously work with sound, but want only in their free time to play the synthesizer and make some music for their pleasure. In principle, you can quite easily use a computer for musical purposes without knowing the basics of acoustics, electrical engineering and other applied disciplines.

But if you are a professional musician or an “advanced” amateur, then everything that is written below, you just need to know. Without this, you will not be able to get a conscious result, and in the future to creatively use programs avoiding template solutions. And this requires at least an understanding of the basic laws of acoustics. Therefore, gather your thoughts and start reading – we tried to make your task as easy as possible and, as much as possible, simplified the story.

By the way, many Western musicians do not particularly bother to study equipment or, especially, some suspicious fundamentals of physics, and rely entirely on technicians, sound engineers and producers.

Now imagine a situation: you need to voice a concert at a stadium or in a sports palace (with a multi- Continue reading

What is pop music

Estrada is a type of stage art that implies both a separate genre and a synthesis of genres: singing, dance, original performance, circus art, illusions.

Pop music is a form of entertaining musical art, addressed to the widest audience.

This type of music was most developed in the XX century. It usually includes dance music, various songs, works for pop-symphony orchestras and vocal and instrumental ensembles.

Often, pop music is identified with the existing concept of “light music”, that is, easy to perceive, generally available. In historical terms, classical music that is simple in content and has gained universal popularity can Continue reading
