There are many wonderful artists in Norco, California, including face and body painters, caricaturists, portrait artists, and airbrush artists. Oldfield, A., & Flower, C. (Eds.). (2008). Music Therapy with Children and their Families. London: Jessica Kingsley. The artist used the side of the pencil tip to apply tone broadly and quickly. She worked quickly and loosely, producing a sense of the whole animal rather than a detailed drawing. She concerned herself with the large shapes. She used the point of the pencil to emphasize some parts. All her lines are gentle and curving. She also incorporated the rough texture of the paper surface. There are white parts remaining (even in the toned areas) that keep the drawing light, fresh, and sparkling. Aasgard, T. (2001).

A peculiar study from the University of Cornwall has shown that listening to heavy metal music makes people less sociable and lowers their willingness to do things for the common good. The researchers had several groups of test subjects play a game. In the course of the game, players could donate” their personal scores to improve their team’s score. Some of the teams would listen to such songs as The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine”, Katrina and the Waves’ Walking on Sunshine” and the like. Others would be listening to heavy metal and similar genres. In the end, players from the first category were more eager to share their scores than those who listened to dark, gloomy music. Lynn and Michael. Once again you guys were the hit of our Picnic.

Wigram, B. Saperston & R. West (Eds.), The Art and Science of Music Therapy: A Handbook. London, Toronto: Harwood Academic. The creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of music vary according to culture and social context. Indeed, throughout history, some new forms or styles of music have been criticized as “not being music”, including Beethoven ‘s Grosse Fuge string quartet in 1825, 3 early jazz in the beginning of the 1900s 4 and hardcore punk in the 1980s. 5 There are many types of music, including popular music , traditional music , art music , music written for religious ceremonies and work songs such as chanteys Music ranges from strictly organized compositions—such as Classical music symphonies from the 1700s and 1800s—through to spontaneously played improvisational music such as jazz , and avant-garde styles of chance-based contemporary music from the 20th and 21st centuries.
The collection contains paintings, drawings, and prints. As a contemporary Scottish artist Deborah Phillips makes use of strong and bold colour. Her paintings are rooted in the rich, evocative Scottish Landscape. And in recent paintings Deborah has concentrated on using Acrylics which give added vitality and movement to her paintings.

These concepts have implications for rhythmic perception as well. As part of a study on musical sophistication, Müllensiefen, Gingras, Musil, and Stewart (2014) asked participants from the general population to complete a beat perception task adopted from Iverson and Patel (2008). Participants were presented with several musical excerpts from a variety of genres. A metronomic beep was played over each excerpt. Specifically, the metronomic beep was manipulated to either have the same tempo as the musical excerpt, and therefore considered to be “on the beat,” or was manipulated to be slower or faster in tempo than that of the excerpt, and therefore considered to be “off the beat.” Participants had to indicate whether or not the metronomic beep was “on the beat” or “off the beat.” On average, males were significantly more accurate than females in identifying whether or not the metronomic beep coincided with the actual tempo of each excerpt. Although the reasons for these sex differences remain unknown, these differences may reflect differences in empathizing and systemizing. The systemizers’ greater attention to detail and detail-processing is likely at the root of such differences. Where empathizers are more likely to be processing the emotional content (i.e. the “bigger picture” and global meaning of the psychological attributes in music), systemizers are likely to be more focused more on the surface content (the instrumentation and sonic attributes). And since males tend to score higher on systemizing compared to females, it is no surprise that males performed better on the beat perception task in Müllensiefen et al.’s (2014) study. Accordingly, we predict that individuals with ASC will also perform better on such tasks. Confirming these conclusions is a natural next step for future research.

Geometric blocks of colour reflect architectural design. Large blocks at each end flank a row of smaller blocks. Colours used here are subjective. This is a three-dimensional piece which emphasizes a flat view plane. It was designed for installation in a specific interior space. Its linear shape reflects architectural design, specifically the rows of building blocks that travel across the building. 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. Harmony is what you hear when two or more notes or chords are played at the same time. Harmony supports the melody and gives it texture. Harmonic chords may be described as major, minor, augmented, or diminished, depending on the notes being played together. In a barbershop quartet, for example, one person will sing the melody. The harmony is provided by three others—a tenor, a bass, and a baritone, all singing complimentary note combinations—in perfect pitch with one another. Usually harmony 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). Sign language becomes even more evident in black and white drawings that evoke musical exercises with their motifs and recapitulations of the ebb and flow of tides: times of day amidst floating objects pulled by currents. Walker has stated that all his abbreviations of shapes and forms come from acute observation of particular sites. His drawings reflect these observations of a sea world with undulating patterns, horizontal and vertical lines that act as cross currents creating pulsating tensions. Fish, ice cakes, detritus, clam markings, and fragments of land intermesh with the tides.

Smith’s work is in international public and private collections, including the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The much-loved artist has been honoured in Canada with several awards, including the Order of Canada (1996), the Order of British Columbia (2000), the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts (2009) and the Audain Prize for Lifetime Achievement in the Visual Arts (2007). In 2015, the UK-born artist met Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip at the opening of the new Canada House in London, where his 2014 work Reflections is part of the embassy’s permanent collection.

Two iconographic motifs, the himation and the book, indicate the importance of literacy for understanding the presentation of Antony’s character. The traditional wrapping of the himation around the body to create a sling for the right arm evoked, inter alia, traditional associations of bookishness, a respect for learning, and the ways of life made possible by such learning.M. Bieber, Roman Men in Greek Himation (Romani Palliati): A Contribution to the History of Copying,” PAPS 103, no. 3 (1959): 374-417. Although Bieber undertook her study as a way of assessing Roman copies of Greek models, she charts uses of the motif in a continuous history right up into the early Christian era” (377).

The mantle figures Antony as learned, as does the book he holds, whereas his presence among a group of similarly dressed monastic saints holding books identifies him as one of a group of wise men. Although diverging from his characterization in the Life of Antony, this depiction accords with other late antique Egyptian views and resonates with the philosophical aspects of the teachings disseminated through Antony’s letters that Samuel Rubenson has brought to light.S.
