2023.03.22 14:03 AlexMikkelsen Making music
Hello everyone. I'll start right away, without long introductions. This article consists of two parts: theoretical, where I reflect on the nature of creativity, and practical, where I comment on the creation of specific compositions. So, let's go!submitted by AlexMikkelsen to musicians [link] [comments]
Music is an amazing kind of creativity. A song done in a few minutes can take off and earn an author a lot of popularity and a ton of money.
Roy Orbison and his partner Bill Deese sat at Orbison's house trying to compose a song. In search of a melody, they played whatever came to mind. Roy Orbison's wife, Claudette, looked into the room and told her husband that she was going to the city to shop. Roy asked if she needed money, and then Deese got into the conversation with the remark: “Pretty woman never needs any money!". Then Orbison began humming the phrase "Pretty woman walking down the street", and Bill Deese began to beat the rhythm with his fist on the table. He vividly imagined a certain woman in a yellow skirt and red shoes, her heels clicking on the sidewalk. When Claudette returned with her shopping, the song was ready. In a television interview, Orbison said that it took as long to write the song as it sounds.Neither cinema, nor literature, nor painting can boast such a big difference between costs and results. What's the secret? And why are some compositions successful and others not? I will not delay with the answer: in my opinion, the reason for this lies in the melodies.
If you write brilliant lyrics, make a professional arrangement in a high-quality studio with the best masters, achieve crystal clear sound, draw a great cover, shoot a video for a lot of money and invest properly in advertising, but you will not have a good melody, all this will turn out wasted. Melodies that catch, swing, evoke emotions will be interesting, but just a set of notes, even a pleasant one, will not lead to anything special.
I don’t know why different people’s brains respond in the same way to certain sets of sounds, but we can take advantage of this. We need to learn how to find these sounds.
When creating music, there are principles that are characteristic of creativity in general. In my understanding, creativity is the creation of new connections between elements. Elements can be anything: things, words, ideas. For example, let's take two elements: a table and a glass. Let's create a connection: the glass is on the table. This is trite, but this is creativity. Let's try the other way around: the table is on a glass. Already more interesting. A table inside a glass, a glass inside a table, a glass made of wood, a table made of glass - as you can see, there can be many options, and I think you have already noticed an important detail: most of these connections are complete nonsense. But among the nonsense, you can find something interesting. For example, a table where you can pour water - at least this is a little less nonsense than previous examples)
So in everything that concerns creativity: the majority of creations are uninteresting and useless, and the task of the creator is to find worthy ones among them.
The Russian poet Mayakovsky has a wonderful poem. In the original, of course, there is a rhyme that makes the poem ten times better, but the pure meaning is also worth attention.
Poetry is the same mining of radium.In gram production, in years of work.You exhaust a single word for the sake ofThousands of tons of verbal ore.But how sizzling these words are burningNext to the decay of the raw word.These words set in motionThousands of years of millions of hearts.The creation process as a whole consists of three stages:
"Unfortunately for Mr. Malfoy, he is still new to the art of creativity, and so he has committed a classic error of Ravenclaw."..."Mr. Malfoy is new to the business of having ideas, and so when he has one, he becomes proud of himself for having it. He has not yet had enough ideas to unflinchingly discard those that are beautiful in some aspects and impractical in others; he has not yet acquired confidence in his own ability to think of better ideas as he requires them. What we are seeing here is not Mr. Malfoy's best idea, I fear, but rather his only idea."Now let's move on from the principles of creativity in general to creating melodies. In the case of melodies, elements are notes: their duration, pitch, and the intervals between them. And their combination is the creation of connections. Our task is to generate a large number of melodies, and then select those that cause an emotional reaction, catch. You can just hum or play an instrument. Do not forget that at first the process will be very difficult, and the result will be disgusting. Soon, the subconscious mind may figure out what you want from it (or maybe not - try it next time), and it will start working on its own. This is the optimal state for work.
Another important aspect of working with the subconscious is worth mentioning. The degree of effectiveness of his work and control over him depends on the degree of mental stress. If you are relaxed, then control and efficiency are maximized - you can easily start and stop the necessary processes, there is even an opportunity to hear melodies right in your head and control them there. If you are tense, depressed, then the situation will be the opposite. Therefore, it is advisable to bring yourself as relaxed as possible before starting creative work.
This can be done either with the help of external things that cause relaxation (environment, music, smells), or with the help of the skills of conscious relaxation (concentration on breathing, biofeedback therapy). This is a separate, no less interesting topic, but now we are talking about something else. Unless it is absolutely not worth using nicotine, alcohol or worse for relaxation - the minus is more than the plus.
When the melody is ready, you can create a composition on its basis, and here you will find all the same creativity, all the same enumeration of options - not only notes, but also chords, instruments, effects, features of the genre in which you compose. All this is also important, but not as important as the melodies, and in this article I will not go deep into this topic. As developing any skill, composing music takes time and effort, and it is worth remembering that the fundamental difference between someone who has achieved something and someone who has not achieved anything is that the first one started and did not quit.
On this philosophizing, we can end and go to examples.
There are special programs for working with music, and they are called DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). There are a great variety of them: there are paid ones, there are also free ones. Those who work with them constantly argue about which one is better, but here the principle applies: the best workstation is the one in which you personally feel comfortable working. At one time I played with FL Studio, with Reaper, but now I mainly work in Cakewalk by Bandlab (formerly Sonar). Unlike the previous two, it is free and at the same time relatively full-featured (although not very popular). An interesting detail: when creating what I will talk about next, I used exclusively free programs, plugins and other intellectual property. You can judge for yourself how much this is enough to create music.
Here is the final result:
So, after a long break in creativity, I decided to write something and remembered that Bandlab has another free DAW that you can work with right in the browser. There it is.
There are a lot of instruments and sounds here, it is easy to learn, so it can be useful for beginners.
Remembering my brilliant theory about composing melodies, I began to strum whatever was right on the keyboard. I am not very good at playing the piano, but nevertheless, after several approaches and many attempts, I composed the main melody for the synthesizer. Added bass and drums. It worked out well. Then, trying to keep up with the style of this melody, I composed the intro. And then the bridge after the main melody. Added a few more instruments. And so, little by little, the following picture came together.
Road (former Blizzard)
It may look menacing, but the project is actually not that difficult. Complex arrangements can have several dozen tracks.
I've heard the expression that music is a combination of the familiar and the unexpected. Following this principle, I tried to make sure that in each measure (rectangle) there was something new - the introduction of a new instrument or a new melody, or, on the contrary, silence.
And this is how the so-called piano roll looks like in this program, where the work with notes takes place. Here you can add, move, stretch and perform other manipulations within the law of your country.
Let's go further. And then I decided to do something cosmic, and, torturing the keyboard, knocked out a few notes from it. I set the tempo down, took a stringy synthesizer as an instrument, and it turned out to be ambient.
As you can see, everything is even simpler here, but the composition does not get any worse from this. The cherry on top was an apparently Pink Floyd-inspired guitar solo. Also played on the keyboard, but in separate fragments, and adjusted to the rhythm.
As you can see, I like to copy melodies and scatter them on different instruments playing at the same time. Here it played a cruel joke on me, and by copying the synthesizer melody to the bass track in the beat before the solo, I got a peculiar, albeit dirty sound. It would be much better to have one note on the bass here, not two. But I don't think anyone really cares.
After creating this track, I got the crazy idea that it would be cool to publish this. But two compositions seemed to me a little, so I took out old records from the stash and finalized them. They are made in Cakewalk and look like this.
Yes, my narration looks like:
But, as I said, creating an arrangement is the same often not very interesting enumeration of options, the result of which you see in the screenshots.
Let's say the arrangement is ready, and the nastiest part of the job comes - mixing. This is when a sound engineer adjusts the volume, pan (left / right), frequencies and effects for each individual track so that they sound organic and do not interfere with each other. I set up old projects right in the program, and saved two new ones as separate tracks and loaded them into Cakewalk. True, when saving to the recording, some kind of digital crackle appeared, which can be heard in some parts of the Road and Home tracks, but I suggest considering this as an artistic technique.
Mixing of Road
I must say that the mixing turned out pretty badly, and at the middle frequencies I have a mess, but I think that all this is compensated by great melodies).
The next stage is mastering. This is the preparation of the final recording for publication. Here, the volume adjustment, equalizer and so on also come into play, but this is now applied not to individual tracks, but to the track as a whole. Modern tracks are very loud and very compressed (this is when the loudest moments of the recording and the quietest ones are brought closer to the same average loudness value). The so-called "loudness war" led to this result. Once the producers discovered that the louder the recording, the brighter and more interesting it seems to the listener, and began to compete with each other in twisting the sliders. Thanks to this, the volume of the published music has been steadily growing over the past half century, and we will not be left out either). In addition, the recordings from one release should have the same volume so that the listener does not have to turn the knob at the beginning of each new track.
My mastering skills are even worse than mixing, but here the same Bandlab came to the rescue. The service provides free (which is important) mastering services in automatic mode: you upload a track to the site, and the program tries to put it in order. And, interestingly, she is good at it, although for professionals this approach will cause severe mental and maybe physical suffering.
I'll tell you a secret: individual people, professionals, should be engaged in mixing and mastering, since this is a painstaking and thankless process that can cause a lot of problems for a novice artist. It is a known fact that Billie Eilish recorded her debut album with her brother literally in the bedroom on not the most expensive equipment, and highly paid specialists in the studio were engaged in the subsequent processing. But this does not threaten us yet.
So, the tracks are ready, and they are even almost of the same volume (I messed up here too, obviously choosing different mixing styles for different tracks (see the picture above). Now you need to share them with others, and then collect praise, wait for letters from labels, fend off fans ...
The current time is such that even a schoolboy can send his music to all possible stores, and then collect money for listening (royalties). For this, there are special services - aggregators, which either for a fee or for a percentage of the proceeds send masterpieces to all sorts of itunes and spotifies. I decided that such a scale is not required specifically for this release - tracks in this genre have not achieved great popularity, and it will take too long to wait for the release on the platforms.
The first thing I did was upload my four-track mini-album to Soundcloud. I found some commercial licensed photos on free stock photo stocks and designed the album page and cover with them.
I also decided to make a video with my tracks and put it on Youtube. As a video editor, I used a not very convenient, but free Shotcut. The video featured the album cover on a black background and the song title underneath. Remembering that the standard Microsoft fonts are not very free for commercial use (you never know), I tried hard and found a suitable one on Google Fonts. On the one hand, the resulting picture looks quite stylish, but on the other hand, it is very cheap and creates some kind of tragic feeling. But that is what it is.
I saved the result at 720p, but, interestingly, YouTube itself added 1080p from somewhere else, apparently so that you can enjoy a black screen in HD format.
I also made my own Coub for each song, suitable for the style, and also published it, but there is no particular activity there.
I must say that I do not count on any particular popularity of these four compositions. Yes, in my opinion, there are good tunes (and this is the most important thing), but this is not the kind of music that hits the charts. What I have composed is the first steps, acquaintance. That is why the mini-album is called Hello World.
Actually, that's it. Thanks for your attention!

2023.03.22 13:53 Standard_Prune_1653 The Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment without Braces: Clear Aligners vs. Traditional Braces
The treatment of orthodontics has come a far in the past. Even though traditional braces have been the preferred treatment for decades, alternatives are now available to those who wish to improve their dental alignment without the traditional wires and brackets made of metal. Clear aligners are getting more popular and offer many advantages compared to traditional braces. In this blog article, we'll look at the advantages of orthodontic treatment without braces and then compare them with traditional ones. If you're searching for Orthodontic Without Braces Treatment in Gurgaon, this blog post is for you.submitted by Standard_Prune_1653 to u/Standard_Prune_1653 [link] [comments]
Before we begin, let's examine the benefits of treatment that don't require braces. One of the most apparent benefits is appearance. Clear aligners are almost invisible, so they can be straightened without anyone knowing the treatment. This is particularly important for those who feel uncomfortable wearing braces. Clear aligners are as comfortable as traditional braces. There aren't any brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth. Additionally, you can take off the aligners if you have to take a drink, eat or clean your teeth.
Another advantage of treatment with braces is that it's typically quicker than traditional braces. Clear aligners are a great option, and achieving the desired results within a shorter time is possible. Because clear aligners use gentle pressure on your teeth and are more effective than the continuous pressure applied by conventional braces, you will get the desired results quicker, which could benefit those who have a big event shortly and want to get a beautiful smile at the right time.
There are a few essential differences in the case of clear aligners as opposed to traditional braces. Traditional braces consist of wires and metal brackets fixed onto your teeth. An orthodontist requires regular adjustments to maintain tension in the teeth and then move them to the ideal place. On the other hand, clear aligners consist of smooth, clear plastic that can be placed on top of your teeth. They are custom-made to be a perfect fit for your teeth. They are replaced every couple of weeks as your teeth shift.
Clear aligners provide a variety of advantages over traditional braces. As we mentioned, they are practically invisible, making an ideal choice for people who are embarrassed regarding their looks. Clear aligners can also be removed, and you can remove them for eating or drinking or even take a brush to your teeth. This is a much more convenient alternative to traditional braces. In addition, clear aligners can be more comfortable and comfortable as there aren't brackets or wires that can irritate your mouth.

They provide many advantages over traditional braces, such as quicker treatment times, ease of use, and better appearance.

If you're considering using clear aligners, ask your dentist whether they're an appropriate alternative. If you follow the correct treatment plan, you'll be able to create a gorgeous, straight smile without having to use traditional braces.

2023.03.22 13:49 nickhenderso Dr. Sait Bircan clinic FUE 5000 grafts result
Hello, was thinking for the last couple of years about hair transplantation but hoped that i will not have to do that. Day by day my situation became worse and worse, even after using finasteride for 3 years. So I didn't had any other option except doing hair transplantation.submitted by nickhenderso to HairTransplants [link] [comments]
In my country clinics charged me for more that 10k $, so i was searching for cheaper options. After some researches i understood that Turkey was the best option for me, cause prices there are almost 4 times less than here. Have talked with almost 50 clinics, the prices are starting from 2000 goes up to 7000 dollar. While talking with clinics, I found out about ISHRS which is international society of hair restoration surgeons. As far as I understood there are around 11 surgeons in Turkey in this association. After reading a bit more information about it, decided to go with one of the surgeons from this association, that's how I found out about Dr.Bircan.
Was following Dr.Bircan on insta for a while, the results there looks quite impressive. Had couple of more options, but Dr.Bircan was the most affordable option between ISHRS members, cause average in their clinic is around 5k. Was talking for a while with doctors assistants and picked a surgery day. My case is quite hard, some of the clinics even refused to do surgery for me, cause i have a large bold area. In DR. Bircan clinic they proposed to do 2 sessions of hair transplantation, on the first session we decided to implant 5000 grafts with FUE method. The main reason why I choose DR.Bircan is cause they are performing just 3 surgeries a day. I was terrified with the stories when in the clinic are performing 25 surgeries a day, that's not what I was searching for.
After arriving to the airport they organized a transfer for me, but the airport is very big so it was quit hard to find it, but fortunately my manager was always in touch with me. After that I went to the hotel and in the next morning i went to the clinic. We did some tests and talked again with doctor about surgery plan. After extraction of the grafts we had a conversation with a doctor again and he started opening the channels. Implantation of the grafts took way more that extraction of them, but thanks god i slept most of the time. The whole surgery took like 7 hours. After I went to the hotel.
Next day i came for washings, took the bandages off and manager explained me everything about after care. They gave a bag with a bunch of medicines and stuff for after care. The transfer picked me up to the airport after that.
I am very satisfied with the result, passed just 5 months, but it already looks very good. The anesthesia was quite painfull, and swellings after the surgery were bad, but i was ready for that. If you are planning to perform the surgery, be ready for recovery process, cause it takes some time. By the way i was expecting that everything will be worse, but so far regeneration process goes quite fast. For now just keep in touch with my manager and send him the pictures of my head, planning to do second session 3-4 months later.
If you have any questions about hair transplantation will be glad to help u, cause I got a lot of support before in other forums and was ready for my surgery
