The hippocampus accompanied with the frontal cortex of the brain play a large part into determining what we remember. The reason it is so easy to remember song lyrics is because the words are accompanied to a consistent beat, so this combination makes it easier for us to retrieve the memory. We are constantly storing memories in our collective unconscious and subconscious, but it is a matter of retrieving them to determine if we truly remember something. In regards to music bringing back a certain memory, when people listen to music it triggers parts of the brain that evoke emotions. Daveson, B., & Kennelly, J. (2011).

Inspiration for her paintings is broadly based ranging from still life to seascape and townscape. There is always a strong emphasis on light, shade and pattern in Jennifer’s paintings. This is particularly evident in her oil paintings of French villages and Italian townscapes. She draws on the effects of sunlight on an object, be it on a building, water or a still life subject. Her still life paintings are often flowers, fruit and drapery, portrayed in rich vivid colour with a profusion of pattern.

Though one could say that the human voice was the first instrument, most cultures have developed other distinctive ways of creating musical sound, from something as simple as two sticks struck together to the most complex pipe organ or synthesizer. Learning about musical instruments can teach you much about a culture’s history and aesthetics. A musical instrument is an instrument created or adapted to make musical sounds. In principle, any object that produces sound can be considered a musical instrument—it is through purpose that the object becomes a musical instrument. The history of musical instruments dates to the beginnings of human culture. Early musical instruments may have been used for ritual, such as a trumpet to signal success on the hunt, or a drum in a religious ceremony. Cultures eventually developed composition and performance of melodies for entertainment. Musical instruments evolved in step with changing applications. Legg, Alicia.

Thomas Nozkowski is recognized for his richly colored and intimately scaled abstract paintings and drawings that push the limits of visual language. The preface to systematic music therapy for mental disease patients is thought to have emerged in the early 1900s as a consolatory activity of musicians in mental hospitals (Hayashi, et al., 2002). It has spread widely throughout the developed world after that first exploration. In 1990, the National Association for Music Therapy conducted a survey disclosing that music therapists serve in a variety of positions with many populations including mental illness, developmentally disabled, elderly persons, and those with multiple disabilities included addicted persons (Gallant & Holosko, 1997). Among children, music therapy was most effective for those who had mixed diagnoses. It also seemed extraordinarily helpful for children who had developmental or behavior problems, while those with emotional problems showed smaller gains. These findings may be due in part to a greater emphasis placed on overt behavior changes than subjective measures of experiences (Gold, Voracek & Wigram, 2004). A household’s character was on display both inside the home and outside in public. As Ramsay MacMullen pointed out long ago, the livery of a household processing through city streets on the way to the baths, dinner, or a state occasion could make a spectacular impression.Clothing within households of means and power could announce household identity through livery: R. MacMullen, Some Pictures in Ammianus Marcellinus,” ArtB 46 (1964): 435-56. For textile furnishings representing other aspects of household identity, see T. K. Thomas, Material Meaning in Late Antiquity,” in Designing Identity: The Power of Textiles in Late Antiquity, ed. T. K. Thomas (Princeton, NJ, 2016), 20-53. Deliberate self-conscious display of status and character in public, imperial, and ecclesiastical settings only grew more remarkable over the centuries of late antiquity. Monastic dress, as it developed within the dynamic late antique vestimentary system, provided equally impressive displays of household and lineage in semi-cenobitic practice, as at the monastery of Apa Apollo at Bawit, and more so in fully cenobitic practice. Texts present additional evidence of costume and choreography shaping dramatic corporate monastic appearance. The History of the Monks of Egypt, for instance, describes how Apa Apollo’s monks sang hymns while dressed in white garments in imitation of heavenly choirs.N. Russell, trans., The Lives of the Fathers: The Historia Monachorum in Aegypto” (Kalamazoo, MI, 1981), 8.18-19; see also the similar image of Apa Or’s monks, 2.12.
