Body adornment has always included body painting, tattooing, and other kinds of body art, this has been the case over the ages; but in recent times, body art has become more varied and endlessly creative. Even with free music streaming services, people still spend a lot of money on music and our emotional brain is responsible for the toll that music takes on our wallets. In an interesting study published in the acclaimed journal Science, researchers found that the amount of activation in the area of the brain linked with reward and pleasure predicted how much money a person would be willing to spend on a new, previously unheard piece of music. The valuation of a new musical piece included activation of areas of the brain that process sound features, the limbic areas associated with emotions, and prefrontal areas, associated with decision-making. Increasing activity in the functional connections between these areas and the nucleus accumbens, associated with motivation, pleasure and reward, was connected to the willingness to spend more money on the musical piece. The study elegantly described how processing of sound results in activation of affective brain regions and ultimately influences decision-making. Langston, T., & Barrett, M. (2008).

Diatonic Scale is a heptatonic scale that includes five whole steps (whole tones) and two half steps (semitones) in each octave, in which the two half steps are separated from each other by either two or three whole steps, depending on their position in the scale. This pattern ensures that, in a diatonic scale spanning more than one octave, all the half steps are maximally separated from each other (i.e. separated by at least two whole steps). The seven pitches of any diatonic scale can also be obtained by using a chain of six perfect fifths. For instance, the seven natural pitch classes that form the C-major scale can be obtained from a stack of perfect fifths starting from F: Fâ€”Câ€”Gâ€”Dâ€”Aâ€”Eâ€”B. Any sequence of seven successive natural notes, such as C-D-E-F-G-A-B, and any transposition thereof, is a diatonic scale. Modern musical keyboards are designed so that the white notes form a diatonic scale, though transpositions of this diatonic scale require one or more black keys. A diatonic scale can be also described as two tetrachords separated by a whole tone. The term diatonic originally referred to the diatonic genus, one of the three genera of the ancient Greeks. In musical set theory, Allen Forte classifies diatonic scales as set form 7-35. This article does not concern alternative seven-note scales such as the harmonic minor or the melodic minor which, although sometimes called “diatonic”, do not fulfill the condition of maximal separation of the semitones indicated above.

With his landscape paintings Louis McNally takes a particular view and stylises it to meet his own impressions. Well known vistas are thus transformed into something which the art viewer beholds and warms to. In doing so he often creates paintings which can have the look of those painted by Victorian Artists but which are undoubtedly contemporary in presentation. McNally certainly produces paintings of contrast. It’s interesting how often that happens – there’s a global consciousness and then suddenly we have photography capturing a moment in time, and impressionism giving you the artist’s method of recording a glimpse or a glance.

Priyesh Trivedi didn’t train as an artist, or go to art schoolâ€”his technical training lies in animation film-making and game design, and he worked in the gaming and animation industry for four years after graduation. Trivedi, who says he has been painting ever since he can remember, was bored and didn’t feel creatively challenged. Then, in May 2014, he uploaded a watercolour poster he had painted the previous year. Using the character of Adarsh Balakâ€”the ubiquitous boy in a blue shirt and indigo shorts common to educational posters on moral science, hygiene and other subjectsâ€”he drew him sitting and rolling a joint. Let’s tok”, said the poster. His caustic wit became an Internet sensation in the last couple of years,” point out Tara Lal and Mortimer Chatterjee. The series centred around the boy indulging in activities that were decidedly non-ideal, thus offering an incisive critique of socio-cultural expectations. Musical intelligence is one of Howard Gardner’s nine multiple intelligences which were outlined in his seminal work, Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences (1983). Gradner argued that intelligence is not a single academic capacity of an individual, but rather a combination of nine different kinds of intelligences. Musical intelligence is dedicated to how skillful an individual is performing, composing, and appreciating music and musical patterns. People who excel in this intelligence typically are able to use rhythms and patterns to assist in learning. Not surprisingly, musicians, composers, band directors, disc jockeys and music critics are among those that Gardner sees as having high musical intelligence. There are, however, some researchers who feel that musical intelligence should be viewed not as an intelligence but viewed instead as a talent. They argue that by musical intelligence is categorized as a talent because it does not have to change to meet life demands.

The healing potential of music has been utilised throughout history and in many cultures (Wheeler, 2015). Music has been used as a modality for therapy and health promotion and is used by various health professionals to assist people to manage and overcome physical, psycho-emotional, cognitive, and spiritual challenges (Wheeler, 2015). However, the use of music as a therapeutic modality is a relatively new phenomenon in many countries. Many medical practitioners and hospital funding bodies are not convinced that there is sufficient evidence for the effect of music therapy or music-based interventions in health care (Schneck & Berger, 2006).

Critics and historians have called Grace Hartigan both a second-generationÂ Abstract ExpressionistÂ painter and a forebear ofÂ Pop art, though she was not satisfied with either categorization. In explaining the content and purpose of her work, Hartigan once said: perhaps the subject of my art is like the definition of humorâ€”emotional pain remembered in tranquility.â€ Hartigan painted intensely colored, gestural figures, inspired by coloring books, film, canonical painting, and advertising. She was a disciple ofÂ Jackson PollockÂ andÂ Willem de Kooning, and also studied with Isaac Lane Muse. She gained early critical attention when in 1950, she was included in Clement Greenberg and Meyer Schapiro’s New Talentsâ€ exhibition. In 1958, Hartigan was hailed byÂ LifeÂ magazine as one of the best young female American painters. Following great effords of development, Radio Art released a unique system for its listeners, where the listener is able to exploit a broad range of options to combine music with natural sounds. For instance, the listener can add bird songs to piano music creating an envelope of sound that is perfectly conductive to relaxation and rest. Furthermore the listener can make a rotation playlist with any of the music channels, adjust the order and time of rotation and create a beautiful music atmosphere. The list can be saved and opened again at any time. Baker, F., & Krout, R. (2012).

Artist is a person engaged in one or more of any of a broad spectrum of activities related to creating art, practicing the arts or demonstrating an art. The common usage in both everyday speech and academic discourse is a practitioner in the visual arts only. Mind Set. Just as rhythm can affect motor function and the initiation of movement, a familiar tune or melody can reawaken in persons with dementia, or with traumatic brain injury, seemingly lost memories and feelings. We are so much the sum of our experiences and memories that we cannot help associating each new experience with something that came before it. Imagine how the world must seem to someone with no memory link from past to present. But sometimes music can provide a bridge.

More broadly it refers to any study of music, usually related in some form with compositional concerns, and may include mathematics , physics , and anthropology What is most commonly taught in beginning music theory classes are guidelines to write in the style of the common practice period , or tonal music Theory, even of music of the common practice period, may take many other forms. Musical set theory is the application of mathematical set theory to music, first applied to atonal music Speculative music theory, contrasted with analytic music theory, is devoted to the analysis and synthesis of music materials, for example tuning systems , generally as preparation for composition.

The early man did not know about music yet he heard it in the whispering of air and leaves of trees, singing of birds, falling of water in a water fall, and so on. It is hard to tell if music came first or is what lyrics of a song or poetry that was produced first. The sacred chant of Ohm in Hindus and Shlokas in Buddhism appear to be amazingly musical without any music incorporated. The music as various cultures know and practice today is ancient. It involves producing sounds that are in rhythm and are melodious. Whether music is produced using musical instruments (whether percussion or string) or is vocal sung by a person doesn’t make a difference as it is rhythmical and has a soothing and relaxing effect on our minds. To call a composition when it is rendered by musical instrument, as music, and not to refer as music a song or poetry sung in a rhythm by an individual does not make sense though this is how many people feel. Isn’t a lullaby sung by a mother to her child without any music, music? Similarly the tap of fingers or feet on an object that produces lyrical sound is also a kind of music. Spragg, M. (2015).

And last but not least, it is important to remember the influence that both Robert and Sonia Delaunay had on the development of abstraction. The couple seduced the French critic and poet Guillaume Apollinaire with their circular shapes and use of colour. Apollinaire christened their art Orphism, a reference to the mythological Greek figure Orpheus as well as to the title of one of his own poems, which he felt was reminiscent of the â€˜luminous language’ conveyed in their paintings. In this regard, Orphism seems to have more in common with lyrical rather than geometric abstraction.
