Tattie Bogle New musical terminology (19) Folklore: New Covid-age musical terminology 10 Oct 20


Having had to study a bit of music theory and hence musical Italian terminology in the past, I do like a bit of "rubato" - very useful when playing slow airs or singing expressive songs, just for better phrasing and emphasis. Literally, it means "stolen time", but in practice means you stray from strict tempo.
In this world of music being done on Zoom sessions and Skype, a friend coined a new description for what happens when your internet connections slows you right down - then when it recovers, the next few notes or words come rattling out really fast. She called it "Zoombato" - love it!
Any other new words or phrases?
