Many different kinds of symbols can appear on, above, and below the staff. The notes and rests are the actual written music. A note stands for a sound; a rest stands for a silence. Other symbols on the staff, like the clef symbol, the key signature, and the time signature, tell you important information about the notes and measures. Symbols that appear above and below the music may tell you how fast it goes (tempo markings), how loud it should be (dynamic markings), where to go next (repeats for example) and even give directions for how to perform particular notes (accents for example).

Colour: Bold, bright, exciting, energetic. Texture: Actual and implied. The paint drips give energy and variety to the image. They also provide a major focus of interest because of their size, colour, and contrast to other materials. This ensemble will feature variable topics focusing on musical practices that fall outside of typical Western-music traditions. Possibilities include contemporary concert music, improvisation, early music, electronic dance music, performances for music therapy, and many more. The ensemble is open to all students based on audition. Beatboxing is a form of vocal percussion primarily involving the art of mimicking drum machines using one’s mouth, lips, tongue, and voice. It may also involve vocal imitation of turntablism, and other musical instruments. Beatboxing today is connected with hip-hop culture, often referred to as “the fifth element” of hip-hop, although it is not limited to hip-hop music. The term “beatboxing” is sometimes used to refer to vocal percussion in general. Pienaar, D. (2012).

Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice and augments regular speech by the use of sustained tonality, rhythm, and a variety of vocal techniques. A person who sings is called a singer or vocalist (in jazz and popular music). Singers perform music (arias, recitatives, songs, etc.) that can be sung with or without accompaniment by musical instruments. Singing is often done in an ensemble of musicians, such as a choir of singers or a band of instrumentalists. Singers may perform as soloists or accompanied by anything from a single instrument (as in art song or some jazz styles) up to a symphony orchestra or big band. Different singing styles include art music such as opera and Chinese opera, Indian music and religious music styles such as gospel, traditional music styles, world music, jazz, blues, gazal and popular music styles such as pop, rock, electronic dance music and filmi (film songs). Aboriginal art is regional in style, with each area having its own style and preferences, based on the local Dreamings and the work of influential senior artists of the area. Custodianship of Dreamings is passed down along family lines, and each family only paints those stories that they inherit.
Warmun Art Centre presents a survey exhibition of major ochre paintings from its senior artists produced over the past 8 years. Artists represented in the exhibition include Patrick Mung Mung, Mabel Juli, Rusty Peters, Shirley Purdie, Phyllis Thomas, Peggy Patrick, Churchill Cann, Beryline Mung, Tommy Carroll and Gordon Barney.

The study of composition has traditionally been dominated by examination of methods and practice of Western classical music, but the definition of composition is broad enough to include the creation of popular music and traditional music songs and instrumental pieces as well as spontaneously improvised works like those of free jazz performers and African percussionists such as Ewe drummers. Although in the 2000s, composition is considered to consist of the manipulation of each aspect of music (harmony, melody, form, rhythm, and timbre), composition mainly consists in two things only. The first is the ordering and disposing of several sounds…in such a manner that their succession pleases the ear. This is what the Ancients called melody. The second is the rendering audible of two or more simultaneous sounds in such a manner that their combination is pleasant. This is what we call harmony, and it alone merits the name of composition. In 2009, VSA (national office in Washington, DC) invited artists from around the world to paint, draw, or collage the meanings, impressions and images associated with the word disability.” What is Disability is a dramatic display of many of the hundreds of postcards received. The exhibition is an exploration of disability from multiple points of view—cultural, geographic, personal—displayed as works of individual expression. The exhibition opened in June 2010, at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in conjunction with the 2010 International VSA Festival.

I still love looking at paintings, sculptures, and other works. I suppose my favorite American artists are Andrew Wyeth and Winslow Homer. I love the clean lines and the subdued palette of Wyeth’s paintings, along with the simple subjects. I also find the light and shadow in his paintings amazing. Wyeth’s works have a powerful emotional quality that’s hard to explain. Hilliard, R.E. (2003). The effects of music therapy on the quality and length of life of people diagnosed with terminal cancer.

He views his paintings as ‘palimpsests’ – works that he repeatedly returns to, partially destroys and remakes over several years. Which means that you can go around the gallery using the word ‘palimpsest’. Dehcheshmeh, F.S., & Rafiei, H. (2015).

Mumbai-based Manish Nai has had a hectic past few years. When we last met him at the opening of his show at Studio-X (in 2014), he was preparing for the second edition of the Kochi biennale, as well as a solo show at Galerie Karsten Greve in St Moritz, Switzerland. In the past year, he has had two solos—at Chicago’s Kavi Gupta Gallery and the Paris outpost of Galerie Karsten Greve. On 10 December his works were part of an exhibition curated by Girish Shahane, at a collateral event of the ongoing Kochi biennale. Nai’s compression pieces, made with threads of jute softened with glue and compressed into shapes in wooden moulds, are well-known. Around 2011, Nai also began to take photographs of empty billboards, half-torn down, while travelling. Using these images of what he calls ready gestures”, he would merge them digitally. His recent works showcase close-cropped versions of these billboards. Among other Indian studies, Singh and Khess 80 (unpublished dissertation) assessed the efficacy of music therapy as an adjuvant treatment for patients with major depressive disorder. Participants in the music group were compared with a control group that received treatment with psychotropics. Results showed that both the experimental and control groups improved significantly over a period of 4 weeks and there was significantly greater improvement in the music group than the group receiving only psychotropic medications. Another study, Gupta and Gupta, 81 which lacks a clinical setting and randomization, has used Indian music, i.e., listening to one raga, played on the flute (without lyrics) for 30 min a day for 20 days and has found a significant decrease in the scores on depression, state and trait anxiety in study participants compared with the pre-test measurements.

Music evolved as human emotions evolved and as human language evolved and as human intelligence evolved. The sound of music has changed as society has changed over the years, thus the change in the sound of music is really a reflection of our cultural evolution. In Indigenous cultures, music played a role in ceremonies and tradition. Traditional instruments were played, and lyrics were often strongly linked to nature. Rock music began in the early 1950s, relying on various musical genres, including blues, jazz and gospel, as well as country music. One of the oldest-known musical instruments in the world was the flute. Most people love aesthetically pleasing chords and rhythms. Summer Exhibition Illustrated 2012 (exhibition catalogue).

Harmony refers to the “vertical” sounds of pitches in music, which means pitches that are played or sung together at the same time to create a chord Usually this means the notes are played at the same time, although harmony may also be implied by a melody that outlines a harmonic structure (i.e., by using melody notes that are played one after the other, outlining the notes of a chord). In music written using the system of major-minor tonality (“keys”), which includes most classical music written from 1600 to 1900 and most Western pop, rock and traditional music, the key of a piece determines the scale used, which centres around the “home note” or tonic of the key. Simple classical pieces and many pop and traditional music songs are written so that all the music is in a single key. More complex Classical, pop and traditional music songs and pieces may have two keys (and in some cases three or more keys). Classical music from the Romantic era (written from about 1820-1900) often contains multiple keys, as does jazz , especially Bebop jazz from the 1940s, in which the key or “home note” of a song may change every four bars or even every two bars. In addition to Red Rag Art Gallery Nicola Wakeling art work has been exhibited at other leading Scottish Art Galleries and are held in several collections.
