Judges of ‘King of Masked Singers” hearkened to a very engrossing performance from a masked female singer contestant as the presentation went on air last January. In the opening, the singer merits the stage as the audience inaudibly awaited the crooner’s contest piece.
Then, the soloist commences with a melodic, almost charismatic tune that reverberates within the whole studio. Her phrase transitions turn sultry as she keeps building a touch of grace with her tunes. Soon distinct head tones and resonances are inevitably scaled into a granular performance while the whole group inside the studio claps, and nods that finally earn them goosebumps.
Building the tune
The effect felt by the judges and the viewers is elegantly set by an ensemble via musical instruments. As the presentation starts, the cymbal gets a light, soft tap and the piano follows. Later, a female pianist strikes on the keys, one by one as the singer dishes out her lyrics, whereas the piano tunes keep on. This advances as the singer completes her initial phrase and halfway through the second when the blending stays on a steadfast run. At this time the violin joins the ensemble plus, by the time the song reaches the refrain, the saxophone follows the elegant piano accompaniment. Her head tones touch their peaks as she delivers the refrain while, at this time, all the instruments carry a wonderful music synchronically. The calming sway of the violin does not falter essentially as the music pacifies and awes.
The instrumental accompaniment is a stunning combination while the singer plays more with resonances interspersed with deep breathing that seems to magnify the genuine vocal quality. At this time, no doubt, the successful charismatic music is done. the masked female contestant ‘Hello’ puts Nami’s ‘Sad Fate’ in a suspended tonality Then the musical devices in an ensemble bridge to “Prince Anpanman”, the other contestant.
