Pseudo-science and BBC and choir singing

Arrgh, what an irritating load of piffle this story is:
Choir boys’ and girls’ distinctive voices studied

The gist (according to the World’s Greatest Media Outlet) is that there is some ‘magic frequency’ around 8KHz in choir boys’ and girls’ voices that makes it ‘something that communicates with the soul. It’s way beyond the words, it’s way beyond the music’.

Whilst Dr Howard, who is the researcher responsible for the above, appears to be a serious acoustic researcher – his credited papers include Intonation drift in a capella soprano, alto, tenor, bass quartet singing with key modulation and Nonlinear modelling of double and triple period pitch breaks in vocal fold vibration – he is also quoted as saying “maybe you can get to the point where maybe the computer could be at the back of the choir.”

Yeah, a computer – they can do anything!

All he’s really discovered is…

Syntheway Aeternus Brass VSTi: The Entertainer (Scott Joplin) Virtual Ragtime Brass-Band (The Sting)

http://syntheway.net – The Entertainer * (Scott Joplin) Virtual Ragtime Brass-Band with Syntheway Aeternus Brass VSTi (Windows, Mac OS X see links below in requirements)

- Aeternus Brass VSTi – http://aeternusbrass.syntheway.net

* “The Entertainer” is a classic piano “rag” written in 1902 by African American composer Scott Joplin. Ragtime music, much like the hoedown that preceded it, is a unique blend of European styles and African American harmonies and rhythms. Joplin – The King of Ragtime – developed his “rags” while working in minstrel shows, vaudeville and dance halls in Texarkana, Sedalia and St. Louis where he lived, worked and honed his craft. He spent his final years in New York City attempting to have his music accepted by the classical music establishment.
One of the classics of ragtime, it returned to top international prominence as part of the ragtime revival in the 1970s, when it was used as the theme music for the 1973 Oscar-winning film The Sting by composer and pianist Marvin Hamlisch

Software Description:
—————————–

1) Harmodion

Harmodion is a Drawbar organ and free reed aerophone instrument emulation, including Reed organ, Harmonium, Accordion and Bandoneon. It uses Additive Synthesis allowing to manipulate harmonically the sine waveform components to produce pitched sounds, as well as to individually detune those components to produce inharmonic timbres.

Features:

- 9 Drawbars. By sliding drawbars in or out, the user can mix various pitches and create the richly distinctive sounds of an electric organ or of a free reed aerophone instrument.
- The Additive synthesis constructs complex sounds by controlling the level of individual sine-wave components. The sound can be reshaped by alterations made to timbre. A harmonic sound could be restructured to sound inharmonic, and vice versa.
- The rich harmonic content of their sound allows to generate the widest palette of tonal variations for Drawbar organs, Reed organs and Squeezeboxes emulations.
- Vibrato effect.
- Adjustable Key Click simulation to add the percussive effect for distinctive organ sounds and button click noise in Accordion and Bandoneon presets.
- Configurable Drive level. Accomplished by clipping the input signal, this effect adds sustain and additional harmonics and overtones to the signal, creating a richer sound.
- 32 Presets available for a wide range of genres from blues, jazz, gospel and rock styles to folk, ethnic and popular music.
List: – Drawbar Organ – Orgue de la Chapelle – Vibratone (Reed Aerophone) – Flute Organ – Tan-Go (Tango Accordion) – Fantasy Organ – Squeeze Accordion – Organphone – Harmonica – Overdrive Organ – Harmonium – Reed Organ – Calliope Circus Organ – Soft Organ – Percussive Organ – Hard Overdrive Organ – Odd Organ – Accordion – Hammondish B3 – Bandoneón – Rock Organ – Elektro-Orgel – Pure Organ – Blues Organ – Dirty Organ – Rotary Organ – Metalized Rock Organ – Telharmonium (Dynamophone) – Flutina Accordion – VibraphOrgan
