Ten Christmas covers, overtaken by the originals

It is said that everything new is well forgotten old. We decided to support this expression and prepared for you a fresh selection of “bearded” Christmas hits in new arrangements, which overshadowed their originals on all counts. Go!

Carol of the Bells [original] One of the most popular Christmas compositions is none other than the Ukrainian folk song “Shchedryk”, adapted by Nikolai Leontovich. The composer worked on it for almost twenty years: the first edition was presented in 1901, and in 1916 it was first performed by the choir of Kiev University. The English analogue of “Shchedryk” – “Carol of the Bells” – sounded in “South Park”, “The Simpsons”, “Family Guy”, “Adams Family”, “Die Hard” … this list is endless. Continue reading

Madonna’s discography as a mirror of digital record evolution

Madonna’s first albums coincided with the distribution of CDs on the market and her further work clearly shows how the priorities in record recording changed. Let us examine them in more detail.

In healthy skin – healthy hearing

The theory states that the brain uses a holographic coding system, so that it can multivariately encode sensory signals through all the senses. Therefore, any stimulus, like sound, for example, can be transmitted through any other sense organ, in such a way that the brain can recognize the incoming signal exactly as sound, using a special type of signal code for sound.

It seems that, unwillingly, Patrick Flanagan made a significant contribution to the confirmation of this theory when, as a teenager, he invented a device that allows any person (even completely deaf, even with a surgically removed middle ear) and, even more so, fully atrophied auditory nerve) hear through the skin. Patrick called his device “Neurophone” (Neurophone). Interesting story of creating a neurophone. Continue reading
