Album "The Art of Love"

 Bryansk city, Russia

Studio photos

     Music and lyrics by Valentin Firsov; some songs in the album are performed by him

 


    Valentin Firsov is a singer and composer. For a long time he has been cooperating with "Zhivaya Voda" Producing Center, he composes various-genre music and songs.
 More detailed information you can find

     All adaptations, programming, keyboard instruments and dubbing – by Alexander Vasilyev



      Guitar, acoustic guitar and vocal of some songs – Vadim Tyapichev



      The Translation Centre Renaissance has made the literary translation of the lyrics. And to be exact - his director Mr. Alex Pershukevich


 




The Translation Centre Renaissance cooperates with professional translators in all subject areas beginning with atomics and finishing with literary pieces. And working on the project named “The Art of Love” was particularly thrilling by reason of close contact with timeless and such missing a notion today, one which is meant by the name of the project. We have done our utmost to convey in the foreign language the poignancy of feelings of the lyrics in the most precise way. We wish the project has a great success in the future!


     When recording this disc we applied two interesting techniques (as we view it):

 

     Artistic translation of lyrics from Russian into English and performance of the songs using the same musical 'background'.

     Besides one quite clear purpose (this is an international project), there is another explanation:

     …It's an open secret that non-English-speaking audience greatly contributes to success of numerous English hits. This happens because such type of audience reacts to musical and vocal components of a song and doesn't apprehend the lyrics due to the lack of English knowledge. This makes it easier to perceive such a song; one can listen to it several times more than if it was recorded in native language of the listener (such version starts to pall on him/her sooner).

     Songs in Russian may have purely similar effect on non-Russian-speaking audience…

    Free reverse translation of English-language songs into Russian and laying of the translated lyrics over the original audio track.

     Although this technique was invented long ago it's sparsely applied. This is probably due to scarcity of the songs where lyrics can be translated with the translator's voice being laid over the audio track. Because very often flashing and super-popular hits unveil absolutely assistless (and occasionally even doggerel) lyrics… Musical component always significantly prevails over the lyrics.

     Still we tried to preserve the equilibrium.

     That's why it became possible to apply such a technique. Altogether it has a right to exist; perhaps such version of the songs will be to somebody's liking…

      …Before the digital age many beginner singers faced an insuperable challenge trying to record their tracks in analog studios. Just the same with trying to spread them all over the world recorded on physical media… This was the business of large recording companies that had very tight criteria for stuff selection.

       …That's why at that time for some ten thousand people there was just one song, and release of each new album turned into a small sensation…

      But today everything is quite different! Those who want to present their oeuvre to the world don't face any obstacles henceforth. As a result, perhaps the number of songs now exceeds the number of listeners… And this is wonderful! Because…

     Because song is the only product that can stop the time… Yes, you're not mistaken! The "time machine" was invented long ago.

     …When we hear one or another composition for the first time, sometimes unwittingly but very often – for the rest of one's natural save the moment in our memories. And when many years later we hear this song again – then in a twinkle we are carried back for tens of years; into those thoughts and feelings, and even – into scents of that time… To the time when they were young and happy, when they loved…

     Neither movies nor books have such a unique feature.

     …And now where the amount of new songs has grown greatly, we can choose our personal song from this scope.
     Likewise we choose a partner in life we'll choose our personal "time machine".
     The one and only.
