In “Skilled Mechanics”, I’m the lead vocalist: an interview with Tricky

More than twenty years ago, Bristol-based artist Tricky, together with the bands Portishead and Massive Attack, managed to create other music that was located at the junction of hip-hop, jazz, dub, rock and soul and called trip-hop. Since then, this direction has healed its life, and Tricky has acquired the status of a living idol.

But there is also a separate connection, otherwise called adjacent: a new tetrachord does not begin with the last sound of the previous one, but with the other following it. This is how quint mugams are formed. There are also large-text or small-text Continue reading
