A major facet of abstraction in the Arab world is linked to a fascination with the artistic and formal potential of the Arabic letterform. In a departure from classical Islamic calligraphy, a new art movement called Hurufiyya was born, which engaged with the Arabic language as a visual and compositional element. Formal explorations of Arabic alphabets emerged concurrently in several parts of the Islamic world in the 1950s, and Iraqi artist Madiha Umar is often cited as a progenitor of the movement. Umar’s work features manipulated letterforms, deconstructed and overlaid on top of each other to create curvilinear compositions that echo the swirls and rhythms inherent to the script and the gesture of writing itself. While classical Arabic calligraphy is traditionally associated with religious Islamic texts, Hurufiyya artists transformed Arabic letterforms into abstract compositions that could be more readily appreciated by diverse audiences. As scholar Nada Shabout notes, Liberating the Arabic letter from calligraphic rules detached it from the sacred and allowed it to be seen for its plastic qualities.” Yet many artists, including Egyptian Omar El-Nagdi and Sudanese Ibrahim El-Salahi, did not completely divorce themselves from religious or spiritual undertones. El-Nagdi’s artistic explorations between the early 1960s and late 1970s were inextricably linked to Islamic thought and Sufi rituals, characterized by rhythmic abstractions that bear formal semblance to the first letter of the Arabic alphabet, alif, also the first letter in the word Allah (god). El-Salahi’s rhythmic articulation of Arabic alphabets and abstraction of African sculptural forms in his 1964 work The Last Sound references the final sound of a soul’s passage from the corporeal plane to the spiritual plane, and underscores the artist’s commitment to creating art through a spiritual process. Distinct from other artists presented in the exhibition, the Palestinian painter Kamal Boullata engaged not just with individual Arabic letters, but whole phrases, which were often well-known verses derived from Islamic and Christian sacred texts.

SuzieQ42: I had another hub featuring handicapped artists planned but couldn’t get permission to use their photos or information. She is new to meThanks for the info. In 1995 Robert Kelsey decided to leave art teaching for a full-time career as an artist. Success soon followed and Kelsey has enjoyed many successful art exhibitions in Britain, Europe and the United States. Robert’s contemporary paintings can also be found in several corporate art collections. In 1998 he was awarded a diploma from Paisley Art Institute. Vigorous brush strokes were made with a large paintbrush. Some strokes are partially blended. The artist added touches of chalk pastel in another colour. Tile Art is a small arrangement of tiles, or in some cases a single tile, with a painted pattern or image on top. It is often used as an umbrella term that includes other forms of tile-based art, such as mosaics, micromosaics , and stained glass. Unlike mosaics, tile art can include larger pieces of tiles that are pre-decorated. While mosaics use pieces of tesserae or another material to construct a pattern from small components, other methods, such as engraving, carving , and molding may be used in tile art. While mosaics are considered a type of tile art, there are many other forms that are also considered tile art. Janata had subjects listen to excerpts of 30 different songs through headphones while recording their brain activity with functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI. The songs were chosen randomly from top 100” charts from years when each subject would have been 8 to 18 years old. After each excerpt, the subject was asked to answer questions about song, including whether the song was familiar, enjoyable, or linked to a specific autobiographical memory. Janata found that songs linked to strong emotions and memories corresponded with fMRI images that had greater activity in the upper part of the medial pre-frontal cortex, which sits right behind the forehead. This suggests that upper medial pre-frontal cortex, which is also responsible for supporting and retrieving long-term memories, acts as a hub” that links together music, emotions, and memories. The discovery may help to explain why music can elicit strong responses from people with Alzheimer’s disease, said the study’s author, Petr Janata. Kelly, Ellsworth. Artist’s statement.

In the 1990s Modernism highlighted its strong abstract program with the exhibition of “Four Abstract Classicists” (1993), a recreation of the show presented by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1959, while at the same time introducing America to the confrontational, and ofttimes disturbing, conceptual works of Austrian born artist Gottfried Helnwein (1992). Visual Music refers to the use of musical structures in visual imagery, which can also include silent films or silent Lumia work. It also refers to methods or devices which can translate sounds or music into a related visual presentation. An expanded definition may include the translation of music to painting; Visual music also refers to systems which convert music or sound directly into visual forms, such as film, video or computer graphics, by means of a mechanical instrument, an artist’s interpretation, or a computer. The reverse is applicable also, literally converting images to sound by drawn objects and figures on a film’s soundtrack, in a technique known as drawn or graphical sound.

The body of Joe Hargan paintings are remarkable for their diversity. But his paintings are immediately recognisable and follow the rich tradition of vibrant, bold colourist Scottish paintings. Contemporary paintings of the renowned character ‘Sniffy’ have featured in many of Hargan’s paintings and are now collected by art lovers worldwide. Over the years Joe has been awarded a number of art prizes reflecting and rewarding the quality and breadth of his talent. Gold, C. (2004). The use of effect sizes in music therapy research.

Dynamic Range Compression is an audio signal processing operation that reduces the volume of loud sounds or amplifies quiet sounds thus reducing or compressing an audio signal’s dynamic range. Compression is commonly used in sound recording and reproduction, broadcasting, live sound reinforcement and in some instrument amplifiers. A dedicated electronic hardware unit or audio software that applies compression is called a compressor. In the 2000s, compressors became available as software plugins that run in digital audio workstation software. In recorded and live music, compression parameters may be adjusted to change the way they affect sounds. Compression and limiting are identical in process but different in degree and perceived effect. A limiter is a compressor with a high ratio and, generally, a fast attack time. Dynamic Range is the ratio between the largest and smallest values that a certain quantity can assume.

Researchers have systematically investigated the effects of music research on premature infants since the early 1990s, providing evidence-based practice in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) (Caine, 1991; Cassidy & Standley, 1998; Cevasco & Grant, 2005; Cevasco, 2008; Coleman, Pratt, Stoddard, Gerstmann, & Abel, 1997; Collins & Kuck, 1996; Standley, 1998; Standley 2000, Standley, 2003; Whipple, 2000; Whipple, 2005). A meta analysis on music for premature infants indicated statistically significant effects, especially for positive physiological responses, decreased length of hospitalization (LOH), weight gain, feeding, and decreased stress responses (Standley, 2003). All studies in the meta-analysis had positive effect sizes (Cohen’s d ranged from46 to 1.95).
