RUSSIAN RAP AS A DETONATOR OF THE REVOLUTION

A lot has already been written about the reasons that prompted young people to come out to protest against corruption, but one of the main aspects – the impact on the minds of modern and very evil Russian rap – has remained almost unnoticed. About how rapper Oksimiron (Oxxxymiron) and others had a hand in “rocking the boat” – journalist Alexey Papperov:

A large degree of emotional impact is explained by the fact that both aesthetic and semantic information affect a person’s mind and feelings, the latter being distinguished, as a rule, also by a high artistic value, if outstanding poetic works are chosen for it.

The timbre properties of a singing voice are determined by the composition and intensity of the overtones.

Voice type Frequency range, Hz
Soprano 262 … 1318
Mezzo-soprano 220 … 1048
The contralto 175 … 784
Tenor 131 … 587 Continue reading

And there were such releases, in anticipation of which we really managed to get bored.
In 2005, indie pop band The xx appeared in London. Continue reading
