Modern music trends

But this is bad luck: to write briefly, interestingly and readily about what is happening in modern music. Yes, so write so that the thinking reader makes something out for himself, while the other at least read to the end. Otherwise, what’s going on with music today? What? – asks another. Composers – compose, performers – play, listeners – listen, students – …, – and everything is fine! So there is a lot of it, music, so much that you won’t listen to it all. This is true: wherever you come, something climbs into your ears. Therefore, many are “discovered” and listen to what he personally needs.

COMBINATION OR DIVERSITY? And music has one feature: it is able to unite and make huge human masses experience the same and very strong emotions. And this applies both to songs, marches, dances, and to symphonies and operas, too. It’s just worth recalling the song “Victory Day” and “Leningrad Symphony” by Shostakovich and wondering: what kind of music today can unite and unite? The answer will probably be sad: the one under which you can stomp your feet, clap your hands, jump and have fun “until you drop.” Music of strong emotions and emotions today on the sidelines.

ABOUT ANOTHER MONASTERY … Another musical feature, as a result of the fact that there is a lot of music today. Different social groups of the society prefer to listen to “their own” music: there is music of teenagers, youth, fans of “pop”, jazz, enlightened music lovers, music of 40-year-old mothers, stern popes, etc. Actually, this is normal. A serious scientist, music academic Boris Asafiev (USSR) spoke out in the spirit that music actually reflects the emotions, moods and lifestyle prevailing in society. Well, and since there are a lot of moods, both in a single country (for example, Russia) and in the world music space, what is called – “eyes run wide, ears – wither!” No, this is not a call for some kind of restriction, but at least a little will be enlightened – is it necessary ?! To understand what emotions the authors of this or that music offer the listener to experience, otherwise you can “spoil your stomach!” And there is some unity and solidarity when each music lover with his flag and his musical tastes. And where they (tastes) came from is another question. And

NOW ABOUT THE CHARMON … Or rather, not about the barrel organ, but about the sound sources or about where the music is “given out” from. Today there are many different sources from which musical sounds spill out. Again, not a rebuke, once a very long time ago, Johann Sebastian Bach went on foot to listen to another organist. Today it’s not so: I pressed a button and, please, an organ, an orchestra, an electric guitar, a saxophone, but you never know what … Great! And the button is close at hand: at least a computer, at least a CD player, at least a radio, at least a TV, at least a phone. But, dear friends, if from day to day, for a long time and a lot of time listening to music from such sources, then perhaps in the concert hall you might not recognize the sound of a “live” symphony orchestra? And one more nuance: mp3 is an amazing music format, compact, immense, but still different from analog audio recordings. Some frequencies are not enough, cut out for compactness. It’s about the same as looking at the “Mona Lisa” by da Vinci with shaded hands and a neck: you can find out something, but something is missing. Sounds like a grumbling music pro? And you will talk with great musicians … See the most current musical trends here.

EXPLANATION OF THE PROFESSIONAL Vladimir Dashkevich, composer, author of the music for the films “Bumbarash”, “Sherlock Holmes” also wrote a serious scientific work on musical intonation, where, among other things, he said that there was a microphone, electronic, artificial sound and this should be reckoned with as with the fact. We’ll count, but it must be noted that creating such music (electronic) is much easier, which means its quality drops sharply. ON THE OPTIMISTIC NOTE … There must be an understanding that there is good (standing) music and musical “consumer goods”. We must learn to distinguish one from the other. Internet sites, music schools, educational concerts, just concerts at the Philharmonic will help you. And about good music, stories are usually interesting, diverse and fascinating.
