There are not so many good stories with a happy ending in our life. One of them is the history of gramophone records, or “vinyl”.
It is fundamentally wrong to think that vinyl is something prehistoric. The times of gramophones, phonographs and radiograms were long gone, and now vinyl “turntables” are highly technological devices. So, the sound quality of the audio system with such a player is at its best. At very high altitude! To compare the sound received from the records, with the compact disc is an occupation, believe me, ungrateful. Anyway, first ride on a Mercedes and then transfer to the Zaporozhets. Listen once, and everything will immediately become clear. Continue reading
Pianos and pianos are quite expensive musical instruments, but they can be safely attributed to goods that will always be in demand while the cultural layer of the population lives and develops on the globe and, in particular, in Russia. As in any other market, unscrupulous sellers also work in the market of musical instruments, who often falsify the country of origin or the name of the piano trademark in order to earn additional profit. Even professional performers and teachers of musical educational institutions sometimes come across their tricks. Continue reading
Nearly all of the people who worked or worked for BBC Radio 1, including Pete Tong, Danny Rampling, Gils Peterson and John Peel began as employees of pirated broadcasts. Since the 60s of the last century, pirate radio has become home to the underground music itself. By rough estimates, 200 pirate stations are successfully operating in England, of which more than 80 are in London alone.
Pirate radio got its name from the illegal stations of the 60s, which were broadcast from ships in the North Sea and the English Channel. The most famous were Radio Carolina and Radio London (from which Radio 1 lured almost all the disc jockeys in 1967 to its founding), as well as Radio Luxembourg, based on land. Continue reading
Music – what is it? Where did it come from, and in general, why does it exist? It would seem that the questions are worthy of a child, and the answers to which are rather banal and known to everyone, but, nevertheless, who can give an exact answer? Let’s try to figure it out, so …
20-30 thousand years ago, the first more or less reasonable people appeared who had already begun to think about what else they could do on this planet, except to go hunting and war, thinking what else to fill the belly with, and play in the game “With the females of the tribe.” Many probably know the “Pyramid of Needs” (from lectures on Economics, for example), judging by this pyramid, a person, after satisfying his natural needs, begins to think about other minor, but still important for him personally, needs, desires, dreams .

Never in the history of mankind has there been so much music as now. But in fact, it does not just sound – it performs its programming function. And these are by no means empty paranoid words. They can be confirmed by impartial facts … All this is rock and roll “I am ball lightning. I pour rain … You are still young, but you will die. I will not take hostages and share a single life … My bell is calling. I am taking you to hell … ”These are words from one of the most popular songs of the AC / DC rock band -“ Hell’z Bells ”(“ Hell’s Bells ”). The heavy rhythm of the music is borrowed from the ritual of African voodoo – thanks to which the words of the song are sealed directly into the subconscious of the listeners. “I am taking you to hell …” Continue reading
