An in-depth research of the Bulgarian harmonic process is lengthy late. greater than 20 years because the Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares choir used to be provided a Grammy (1990), there's no scholarly examine of the pleasing sounds of Bulgarian vertical sonorities. Kalin Kirilov lines the slow formation of a different harmonic process that constructed in 3 kinds of Bulgarian tune: village tune from the Nineteen Thirties to the Nineties, marriage ceremony tune from the Nineteen Seventies to 2000, and choral preparations (obrabotki) - creations of the socialist interval (1944-1989), popularized by means of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares. Kirilov classifies different techniques to concord and situates them of their historic and cultural contexts, setting up new platforms for research. within the approach, he introduces a brand new process for the categorization of scales.
Kirilov argues that the ready-made techniques which are usually compelled onto Bulgarian song - ‘westernization’, ‘socialist’ or ‘Middle japanese influence’, should not merely superseded but in addition too imprecise to be of use in knowing the delicate modal and harmonic structures present in Bulgarian tune. As an insider who has played, composed and organized this tune for 30 years, Kirilov is uniquely certified to interpret it for a world audience.
