Wiley, and Paula Wilson. As well as affecting how artists created art, 19th century social changes also inspired artists to explore new themes. Instead of slavishly following the Hierarchy of the Genres and being content with academic subjects involving religion and Greek mythology, interspersed with portraits and ‘meaningful’ landscapes – all subjects that were designed to elevate and instruct the spectator – artists began to make art about people, places, or ideas that interested them. The cities – with their new railway stations and new slums – were obvious choices and triggered a new class of genre painting and urban landscape. Other subjects were the suburban villages and holiday spots served by the new rail networks, which would inspire new forms of landscape painting by Monet, Matisse and others. The genre of history painting also changed, thanks to Benjamin West (1738-1820) who painted The Death of General Wolfe (1770, National Gallery of Art, Ottowa), the first ‘contemporary’ history painting, and Goya (1746-1828) whose Third of May, 1808 (1814, Prado, Madrid) introduced a ground-breaking, non-heroic idiom.

Because music has parallels to spoken language, much research on music and the brain has zeroed in on the similarities and differences between them. The similarities could be clues to more successful methods of using musical cueing to stimulate similar language responses in people with brain injuries. One remarkable example of the functional difference between music and language, however, occurs in people who have suffered a left-side stroke, resulting in a type of aphasia where verbal comprehension still exists but the ability to speak or ﬁnd the right words is lost. In these cases, the brain lesion is often located in what is called Broca’s area; speech is slow, not ﬂuent, and hesitant, with great difﬁculties in articulation. Yet, despite the loss of speech, many people with this type of aphasia can sing complete lyrics to familiar songs. This has usually been attributed to the separation of function of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, speech being dominant on the left and singing on the right.
Explores a selection of musical traditions in order to gain an appreciation of musical diversity in terms of aesthetics and meanings. Interrogates the concept of world music” as a way of sustaining binaries between the West and the rest.” By studying the historical, political, economic, social, and aesthetic contexts of varied musical practices, offers students an opportunity to learn how music both reflects and shapes its cultural setting. Through varied pedagogical techniques, offers an informed and critical understanding of music as a meaningful form of human expression. Electronic Tuner is a device that detects and displays the Pitch of musical notes played on a musical instrument. “Pitch” is the highness or lowness of a musical note, which is typically measured in Hertz. Simple tuners indicate—typically with an analog needle-dial, LEDs, or an LCD screen—whether a pitch is lower, higher, or equal to the desired pitch. In the 2010s, software applications can turn a smartphone, tablet, or personal computer into a tuner. More complex and expensive tuners indicate pitch more precisely. Tuners vary in size from units that fit in a pocket to 19″ rack-mount units. Instrument technicians, piano tuners, and violin-family luthiers typically use more expensive, accurate tuners. The simplest tuners detect and display tuning only for a single pitch—often “A” or “E”—or for a small number of pitches, such as the six used in the standard tuning of a guitar (E,A,D,G,B,E). More complex tuners offer chromatic tuning for all 12 pitches of the equally tempered octave. Some electronic tuners offer additional features, such as pitch calibration, temperament options, the sounding of a desired pitch through an amplifier plus speaker, and adjustable “read-time” settings that affect how long the tuner takes to measure the pitch of the note. Among the most accurate tuning devices, strobe tuners work differently than regular electronic tuners. They are stroboscopes that flicker a light at the same frequency as the note. The light shines on a wheel that spins at a precise speed. The interaction of the light and regularly-spaced marks on the wheel creates a stroboscopic effect that makes the marks for a particular pitch appear to stand still when the pitch is in tune. These can tune instruments and audio devices more accurately than most non-strobe tuners. However, mechanical strobe units are expensive and delicate, and their moving parts require periodic servicing, so they are used mainly in applications that require higher precision, such as by professional instrument makers and repair experts.
