One 2014 study surveyed a group of people in order to determine why we enjoy sad music. The study pinned down four different rewards of music-evoked sadness: Reward of imagination, emotional regulation, empathy, and no real-life implications. Tosatto, Guy.

Jonas Burgert’s spaces are theatre stages. He is not looking through a window onto the real world; instead he creates a world of his own into which he stages figures. These figures are never meant to suggest individual human beings, but allegories for the human existence. In paintings like Temple, Burgert creates a conundrum that deals with human characteristics and qualities. The attitude of single-heartedness and the virtue of “standing tall” might remain with the main figure that, untouched by the apocalyptic surroundings, stands up for its dignity and invulnerability. Another figure, crowned with an unfamiliar headdress, is searching the ground, unaware of its environment. The atmosphere in Burgert’s paintings is often taken from a world of destruction and decay. Herein lies a visual equivalent to the many visions of the end of the world that are popular today in music, film, and literature. The leading character in Burgert’s Temple might carry the fire as does Cormac McCarthy’s boy in his 2006 novel, The Road. A house and yard surrounded by a variety of assembled objects painted red and white. These vary from natural objects like beach rocks to such man made objects as an anchor and pieces of machinery. Through reading, speaking and listening, pupils share and document their developing views and ideas, to understand why artists , craftspeople , architects , film makers and designers work in the ways that they do, make decisions and use this to inform their own creative actions. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. Fortunately, there have been significant advances in treatment leading to improved survival rates. These improved survival rates have resulted in increased attention to late effects or residual treatment effects. For instance, some breast cancer survivors report negative changes in cognitive function attributed to chemotherapy-related treatments. Music cognition, a form of cognition, however, does not seem to be negatively affected by chemotherapy. The goal of this study was to explore the relationships between music cognition and standard cognitive domains in breast cancer survivors compared to age and education matched healthy women.
Among clothing motifs, I focus on a particular type of mantle, the himation, a large rectangular piece of cloth, typically worn as an outer garment over the tunic from classical antiquity. Similar arguments for the transfer of authority have been made for another kind of mantle, the smaller skin or fleece melote, which is perhaps best known as the miraculous mantle handed down by Elijah to Elisha in the moment before the former’s ascension to heaven, which replaced Elisha’s 2 Kings 2:8 for the himation of Elisha and 2 Kings 2:13 and following for the melote of Elijah. N. K. Rollason, Gifts of Clothing in Late Antique Literature (Abingdon, 2016), 129-69, addresses these scriptural passages and other late antique texts using the terms melote, pallium, and, to a lesser extent, himation, including the same passages in the Life of Paul and the Life of Antony that I address in this article. The present article builds upon my previous work: T. K. Thomas, Mimetic Devotion and Dress in Some Monastic Portraits from the Monastery of Apa Apollo at Bawit,” Coptica 11 (2012): 37-79; Fashioning Ascetic Leadership: The Enduring Tradition of Mantles of Authority in Portraits of Egyptian Monastic Fathers,” in Egypt and Empire: Religious Identities from Roman to Modern Times, ed. E. ‘Connell (in press); and a current book-length project on the figuration of the earliest monks of Egypt through their dress and portraiture, Dressing Souls, Making Monks: Monastic Habits of the Egyptian Desert Fathers. The pictorial motif of the monastic himation, as representative of clothing and furnishings and as a memory prompt, does much the same work as the imaginary objects that furnished the spaces of memory in techniques employed by educated members of late antique society. Indeed, clothing and other textile motifs were presented as mnemonic devices in saints’ lives, sermons, and other teaching texts for a wide range of audiences.

The artist used synthetic media to create forms found in nature. Talking about her paintings Muriel Barclay says: “I am interested by people and their relationship with each other and the world.” She is especially interested in the female form, their intimacy, vulnerability, fragility and their defenses. Muriel’s paintings are about observation and ambiguity and she encourages the viewer to interpret what the painting is trying to say.

The explosion of popular music and television was reflected in the Pop-Art movement, whose images of Hollywood celebrities, and iconography of popular culture, celebrated the success of America’s mass consumerism. It also had a cool ‘hip’ feel and helped to dispel some of the early 60s gloom associated with the Cuban Crisis of 1962, which in Europe had fuelled the success of the Fluxus movement led by George Maciunas, Joseph Beuys, Nam June Paik and Wolf Vostell. Down-to-earth Pop-art was also a welcome counterpoint to the more erudite Abstract Expressionism, which was already started to fade. But the 1960s also saw the rise of another high-brow movement known as Minimalism, a form of painting and sculpture purged of all external references or gestures – unlike the emotion-charged idiom of Abstract Expressionism.

Public art was a well-established genre by the late 20th century, attracting both traditional and experimental practitioners. Public art in the 21st century has expanded even more as a field of activity in which creative investigation can take place. In addition to continuing familiar forms such as site-specific monuments, murals, graffiti, and collaborations between artists, engineers, and architects, public art encompasses new purposes, forms, and locations, including pop-up art shops, street parades, and online projects. Public artists in the 21st century might use established approaches such as installation and performance but introduce new variations. For instance, it is now common for artists to hire other people, sometimes with special skills, to undertake performances on their behalf. In this vein, Vanessa Beecroft hired fashion models for performances, and the collaborative artists Allora & Caldazilla directed professional athletes as performers in some of their installations.
Similarities and differences between music and language can be seen even when each is broken down into their simplest components. From the basic sounds and meanings, to the overall sentence, story or song, music and language are closely related. According to researchers, listening to sounds such as music and noise has a significant effect on our moods and emotions because of brain dopamine regulation — a neurotransmitter strongly involved in emotional behaviour and mood regulation. However, the differences in dopamine receptors may drive the differences between individuals, the researchers said. The study revealed that a functional variation in dopamine D2 receptor (DRD2) gene modulates the impact of music as opposed to noise on mood states and emotion-related prefrontal and striatal brain activity. Our results suggest that even a non-pharmacological intervention such as music might regulate mood and emotional responses at both the behavioural and neuronal level,” said Elvira Brattico, Professor at Aarhus University in Denmark. Just as Giffords used music to retrain her right brain to help her to talk, children with ADHD can use music to train their brains for stronger focus and self-control in the classroom and at home. In Reinhardt’s early drawings we see him already leaning in this direction, already exploring every possible formal angle of lineas writing, as outline, as form, as expression, as space, as trace or copy. The diagram emerges as dominant. Its appeal was in part its universal applicability, across not only commercial and fine art practices but also temporal and global categories of art history. He would come to use it like an x-ray to expose the efficient outline of a painting’s skeletal structure, sometimes deploying shading to indicate color shifts. As late as 1966, Reinhardt produced Personal Sketches of Paintings, an organizational aid for his major Jewish Museum retrospective that year, in which he diagrammed his monochrome” paintings’ serial color and cruciform structures, which are otherwise barely visible to the naked eye and are impossible to see in reproduction. It was the necessity of contending with the subjective and realist inflection of drawing’s legacy that led Reinhardt through the graphic idioms of American and Surrealist abstraction to the use of collage and to the diagram as strategies for uncoupling manual expression from line. And it led him, eventually, to five-by-five-foot abstract paintings from which all brushstroke had been eliminated. Oldfield, A. (2006).

McIntosh’s paintings reflect his enduring love of the Scottish Isles. Archie says: ‘Since childhood, I have lived in close proximity to sea, loch, river and mountain. As a painter I have the desire to investigate the form, colour, texture and mood of each, and respond through drawing and painting. I feel it is part of my cultural heritage to interpret and translate the many influences in my life and soul. Within the ‘larger vision’ there exists many smaller component parts, which can combine to wear the whole. For example, a small harbour can present graphic images of fishermen ropes, reels, boxes, boats, birds – each with the potential for interpretation changing light, changing mood, changing seasons and changing vision. The world possesses many art-works established as the masterpieces. And every masterpiece has its followers and admirers. Moreover, maybe the paintings could have greater or lower price tags on them, but their artistic value is priceless. LA Schmidt, LJ Trainor Frontal brain electrical activity (EEG) distinguishes valence and intensity of musical emotions,” Cognit. Emotion 15: 487-500. Sampler is an electronic or digital musical instrument which uses sound recordings (or “samples”) of real instrument sounds (e.g., a piano, violin or trumpet), excerpts from recorded songs (e.g., a five-second bass guitar riff from a funk song) or found sounds (e.g., sirens and ocean waves). The samples are loaded or recorded by the user or by a manufacturer. These sounds are then played back by means of the sampler program itself, a MIDI keyboard, sequencer or another triggering device (e.g., electronic drums) to perform or compose music. Because these samples are usually stored in digital memory, the information can be quickly accessed. A single sample may often be pitch-shifted to different pitches to produce musical scales and chords. Often samplers offer filters, effects units, modulation via low frequency oscillation and other synthesizer-like processes that allow the original sound to be modified in many different ways. Most samplers have Multitimbrality capabilities – they can play back different sounds simultaneously. Many are also polyphonic – they are able to play more than one note at the same time.
