美国的理发店四重唱起源于英国移民带到美国的传统四重唱音乐,在19世纪70年代被黑人四重唱转变为即兴清唱。


理发店四重唱最初是在街角和理发店进行表演(因此而得名),其特点是一种被称为“鸣响和弦”(ringing chord)的音乐现象。


这一现象发生在四重唱的所有四个声音达到完美的一致和平衡时,会产生一个统一的共鸣再加上一个类似于第五个声音的泛音。


鸣响和弦据说有如天籁之声,会让你的身心为之一颤——你想不想听一听?

#AmericanMusic – Barbershop: American barbershop originated from traditional quartet music brought to America by British immigrants, and was transformed into improvised acapella by black quartets in the 1870s.


Initially performed on street corners and barbershops (hence its name), it was characterized by a musical phenomenon known as the “ringing chord”.


This occurs when all four voices of the quartet are in perfect tune and balance, generating one unified resonance coupled with an overtone that resembles a fifth voice.


The ringing chord is said to sound so angelic it raises goosebumps on the back of your neck – wouldn’t you like to hear it?
