Carme Ruiz González, Senior Curator, Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí in her paper, Salvador Dali and Science – Beyond a mere curiosity, refers to Dali’s academic interests that “lay in the world of Plato’s mathematics and optics”. Dali became convinced that Plato’s human survival information within plane geometry was about holographic images hidden within the flat plane surface of a painting. Dali’s Stereoscopic Museums around the world need two paintings side by side with the help of some high-tech equipment to reveal somewhat vague holographic images. However, Dali became the first Science-Artist in the World to discover that Plato’s human survival antidote message, hidden for some 2400 years is seen as holographic images within the geometrical flat plane surface of a painting.

Our goals are to celebrate the strength and diversity of work by women artists while also shining a light on the ongoing struggle that many continue to face today. We see these efforts of recognition and empowerment to mark a first step to redress the systematic discrimination against women at the MFA, and within the art world,” said Nonie Gadsden, Katharine Lane Weems Senior Curator of American Decorative Arts and Sculpture, who led a cross-departmental team of curators in organizing Women Take the Floor. A key premise for the present exploration is that the conception of architecture as a spatial framework for memory could guide late antique viewers’ responses to objects in architectural settings. The objects under discussion are textiles functioning as clothing and furnishings, and wall paintings as architectural decoration in which such textiles are represented. Conjunctions of these different categories of evidence are richest in late antique Egypt, especially in monastic settings. Although my main concern is how viewer response was guided by the representation of the honorific mantle in wall-painting programs of portraits of monastic fathers (apas) and forefathers, the results of my research are applicable to a range of domestic wall-painting programs.

Musical tones are produced by musical instruments, or by the voice, which, from a physics perspective, is a very complex wind instrument. So the physics of music is the physics of the kinds of sounds these instruments can make. What kinds of sounds are these? They are tones caused by standing waves produced in or on the instrument. So the properties of these standing waves, which are always produced in very specific groups, or series, have far-reaching effects on music theory. Until the advent of modern imaging techniques, scientists gleaned insights about the brain’s inner musical workings mainly by studying patients-including famous composers-who had experienced brain deficits as a result of injury, stroke or other ailments. For example, in 1933 French composer Maurice Ravel began to exhibit symptoms of what might have been focal cerebral degeneration, a disorder in which discrete areas of brain tissue atrophy. His conceptual abilities remained intact-he could still hear and remember his old compositions and play scales. But he could not write music. Speaking of his proposed opera Jeanne d’Arc, Ravel confided to a friend, … this opera is here, in my head. I hear it, but I will never write it. It’s over. I can no longer write my music. Ravel died four years later, following an unsuccessful neurosurgical procedure. The case lent credence to the idea that the brain might not have a specific center for music. In other words, the political correlation between college degrees and disliking Trump is probably mediated by underlying personality differences. As an intuitive example, take my father. He’s an older white man who’s economically comfortable and has no college degree, which in broad demographic terms sounds like a hard-core Trump fan. But when I tell you he’s a novelist who lives on the Upper West Side with his wife, who is also a novelist, a very different picture emerges. People with artistic temperaments are prototypically high openness,” and it’s no surprise at all that my dad hates Trump. In 1261 Byzantine troops foraging near the city walls found the city unguarded and recaptured it almost by accident. There was a tremendous uproar in the city as they moved to reoccupy it. Thus, the last Latin emperor was awakened in his bed at Blachernae palace and told Greek troops were in the city and on the way to capture him. In a panic, he fled the palace leaving his bed unmade and the crown behind. He escaped on a Italian ship. Panic spread – the Italian merchants and catholic clergy in the city gathered up what they could carry, forced their way onto other Venetian boats in the harbor and evacuated the city. They left behind anyone who could not afford the bribes demanded by ship captains to buy an escape. Byzantine mobs stormed the Venetian quarter, burning their homes and businesses in revenge for 1204. Many people suffered for those sins of 1204 including people who had collaborated with the Latins and families of mixed marriages.
Term used primarily for a setting, where sessions are provided by a board-certified music therapist. Music therapy MT ( Maratos et al., 2008 ; Bradt et al., 2015 ) stands for the …clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program” (AMTA) 2 Many different fields of practice, mostly in the health care system, show an increasing amount of interest in MT. Mandatory is a systematic constructed therapy process that was created by a board-certified music therapist and requires an individual-specific music selection that is developed uniquely for and together with the patient in one or more sessions. Therapy settings are not limited to listening, but may also include playing, composing, or interacting with music. Presentations can be pre-recorded or live. In other cases (basic) instruments are built together. The process to create these tailor-made selections requires specific knowledge on how to select, then construct and combine the most suitable stimuli or hardware. It must also be noted that music therapy is offered as a profession-qualifying course of study. Forinash, M. (Ed.). (2000). Music Therapy Supervision. Gilsum, NH: Barcelona Publishers. Bates, R.

ABSTRACT: Recent research has provided evidence that musical interaction can promote empathy. Yet little is known about the underlying intrapersonal and social psychological processes that are involved when this occurs. For example, which types of music increase empathy and which types decrease it; what role, if any, does empathy play in determining individual differences in musical preference, perception, and performance; or, how do these psychological underpinnings help explain the musical experiences of people with autism spectrum conditions (ASC). To address these questions we employ the Empathizing-Systemizing (E-S) theory as a fruitful framework in which to understand these music-related phenomena. Specifically, we explore how individual differences in musical preference, perception, and performance can be explained by E-S theory. We provide examples from open-ended descriptions of strong musical experiences to demonstrate the ways in which empathy and music inter-relate. Importantly, we discuss the implications for the study of autism, and for how music therapists and clinicians can use music as a tool in their work with individuals diagnosed with ASC.

Music therapy showed moderate to large effects on general mental state, negative symptoms, depression and anxiety. There were the difference between individual studies and they were explained based on the number of sessions (music therapy providing more than 20 sessions showed significant effects on most mental state scores) and quality of music therapy applied. Significant effect on social functioning has been found for high-dose” music therapy whereas no significant effects were found on cognitive functions for low-dose” music therapy (note: Studies examining cognitive tasks delivered less number of sessions). Quality-of-life showed no significant effect and was addressed only in one low-dose” study. Due to the impact that music can have on people’s lives, it can be used in various areas. Thus, as it was already mentioned before, music helps therapists and psychiatrists calm patients and empower them. Teachers use music as an educational tool which allows children and students to memorize the materials more effectively and in a certain context. Organizational managers can use music to inspire creativity in employees so that they can be more spontaneous in finding solutions to a range of problems. There are countless occasions of using music that people can come up with. However, it should be remembered that music can serve both good purposes and be an instrument of mass manipulation. Fourier Transform decomposes a function of time (a signal) into the frequencies that make it up, in a way similar to how a musical chord can be expressed as the frequencies (or pitches) of its constituent notes. The Fourier transform of a function of time itself is a complex-valued function of frequency, whose absolute value represents the amount of that frequency present in the original function, and whose complex argument is the phase offset of the basic sinusoid in that frequency. The Fourier transform is called the frequency domain representation of the original signal. The term Fourier transform refers to both the frequency domain representation and the mathematical operation that associates the frequency domain representation to a function of time. The Fourier transform is not limited to functions of time, but in order to have a unified language, the domain of the original function is commonly referred to as the time domain. For many functions of practical interest, one can define an operation that reverses this: the inverse Fourier transformation, also called Fourier synthesis, of a frequency domain representation combines the contributions of all the different frequencies to recover the original function of time.

Subtle earth and sea winter colours are arranged with careful consideration. The layering of different paper shapes combines with colour to create a sense of space. The light and dark areas also support this. Paper edges create lines and spaces in the work. We can detect shapes within colours which remind us of drawings. The location of the materials in the picture plane creates a sense of distance as the eye moves upward from the shore out to sea. Once Mary became aware of her increasing ability to alternate breathing and making sounds, in a pattern cued by her tapping ﬁnger, she carried this ability over to pacing syllables and short phrases in speech. Before she started music therapy, she could articulate three-syllable phrases with the help of some cueing to breathe at the initiation of the phrase. She also knew the skills she needed to succeed: breathe, speak slowly, exaggerate articulation, and make a syllable-by-syllable attack. She could repeat single words and phrases, albeit with many attempts at self-correction. In the past decade, scientists have become very interested in studying the effects of sound on the human brain, and parents have rushed to embrace and apply any possible benefit to the development of their children. One of the early studies that spurred a rather heightened curiosity of the benefits of music was dubbed the Mozart Effect.” In 1993, a study by Rauscher et al. was published, which looked at the possible correlations between listening to different types of music and intelligence. Soon after, the study erroneously credited with the notion that listening to classical music, particularly the music of Mozart, made you more intelligent. As a result, people started buying and playing Mozart to their children thinking that this would increase their intelligence. Georgia Governor Zell Miller, in 1998, proposed sending every newborn in the state a copy of a classical CD based on this supposed effect.” The Baby Einstein toy company was also launched in reaction to this study. However, the study only demonstrated a small benefit in the area of spatial reasoning as a result of listening to Mozart, and the limited results showed that a person’s IQ increased for only a brief period of time—no longer than 15 minutes, after which it returned to normal. Other studies have not been able to replicate even the 15-minute bump in IQ.
