So, we know that music is old, and may have been with us from when humans first evolved. But why did it arise and why has it persisted? There are many possible functions for music. One is dancing. It is unknown if the first dancers created a musical accompaniment, or if music led to people moving rhythmically. Another obvious reason for music is entertainment, which can be personal or communal. Music can also be used for communication, often over large distances, using instruments such as drums or horns. Yet another reason for music is ritual, and virtually every religion uses music. Claman, Julian.

In terms of listening to music, there is a difference between the intensity and focus required to simply hear music (or hearing anything for that matter) and listening to music. Hearing is the act of perceiving sounds by the ear. In other words, if you are not hearing impaired, your ear will pick up and receive sounds. Good and active listening, on the other hand, is something that is done consciously, and requires some type of focus or engagement on behalf of the individual. Most of us are well aware of the fact that we can hear something without really listening to it or understanding it. Versaci, Nancy R. Recent Painting and Sculpture From the Albert A.

Abstract art, also called nonobjective art or nonrepresentational art, painting , sculpture , or graphic art in which the portrayal of things from the visible world plays no part. All art consists largely of elements that can be called abstract—elements of form, colour, line, tone, and texture. Prior to the 20th century these abstract elements were employed by artists to describe, illustrate, or reproduce the world of nature and of human civilization—and exposition dominated over expressive function.

For this project students provided descriptions of how they made connections and specified which types of connections were useful in the processes of metacognition, dialectical reflection, and self-awareness in weekly written reflections and discussion. Metacognition included clinical applications related to knowing what one knows and does not know, predicting outcomes, planning ahead, efficiently apportioning time and cognitive resources, and monitoring effects to solve a problem or learn. Dialectical reflection included putting multiple perspectives into play with each other to produce insight, looking forward to goals to attain, casting backward to examine what has been experienced and learned, combining the processes of projecting and reviewing, and placing projects and reviews into dialogue to discover what one knows, has learned and might understand. Self-awareness included awareness of own learning styles related to needs for different types of academic tasks, strategies and methods for acquiring, integrating, thinking about and using new knowledge, how prior content knowledge can be applied in clinical work, and present and future contexts in which new information could be useful.
From the Ground Up features abstract and representational work from the North Fourth Art Center ceramic studio by twenty-three artists exploring the use of clay to represent the human form. The pieces evoke associations with Dia de Los Muertos, Mexican wrestlers and anthropomorphic animals alongside assemblages of mermaids, minotaurs and other mythical beings. The installation includes two clay masks above wall mirrors, giving viewers a chance to interact with the art and highlighting the playful nature of the exhibit and the human form. Inaugural Exhibition, Paul Cava Gallery, Philadelphia, October 2-November 10, 1990. Painting, however, continues to have a large public and young artists setting out to be painters now need more than ever to see how artists of earlier generations successfully resisted the status quo and remained outside what evolved into an academic style, for this is what much of the conceptual, film and photographic work has become; merely another academy.

Someone who can spend their entire life without ever listening to anything? These people exist, and they make up approximately five to seven percent of the planet’s population. To find out how the brains of those who don’t care for music work, scientists from McGill University (Canada) have scanned the brain activity of 45 healthy test subjects while the latter listened to music; some of them were these anti-melomaniacs”. It turns out that when these people listen to music, no connection is formed in their brain between the region responsible for processing sound and the brain’s reward center. At the same time, other stimulating activities, such as winning in games of chance, still causes them to experience pleasure. This research, explain the authors, will help us better understand why people enjoy music and may also be useful for medical research. For instance, it can give us insight into the causes of neurological disorders that dampen people’s feelings of reward or motivation: depression, apathy, unfounded and harmful addictions.
