Allowing for commission + tax, you will normally end up with approximately 50% of the retail selling price. (This element becomes more negotiable as you become more successful and better known) But of course the gallery can ask far higher prices for your art than you normally would, given their prestige and setting.

This is a review of a book published to accompany an exhibition at London’s Fashion & Textile Museum, entitled Catwalk to Cover – A Front Row Seat. In the 19th century, one of the key ways that new compositions became known to the public was by the sales of sheet music, which middle class amateur music lovers would perform at home on their piano or other common instruments, such as violin. With 20th-century music, the invention of new electric technologies such as radio broadcasting and the mass market availability of gramophone records meant that sound recordings of songs and pieces heard by listeners (either on the radio or on their record player) became the main way to learn about new songs and pieces. There was a vast increase in music listening as the radio gained popularity and phonographs were used to replay and distribute music, because whereas in the 19th century, the focus on sheet music restricted access to new music to the middle class and upper-class people who could read music and who owned pianos and instruments, in the 20th century, anyone with a radio or record player could hear operas, symphonies and big bands right in their own living room. This allowed lower-income people, who would never be able to afford an opera or symphony concert ticket to hear this music. It also meant that people could hear music from different parts of the country, or even different parts of the world, even if they could not afford to travel to these locations. This helped to spread musical styles.
Donald MacLean (b.1962) is a Scottish artist producing still life and landscape paintings. Brought up in Paisley, Scotland, Donald studied Fine Art (sculpture) at Glasgow School of Art from 1980-85.

Sixty healthy female volunteers (mean age = 25 years) were exposed to a standardized psychosocial stress test after having been randomly assigned to one of three different conditions prior to the stress test: 1) relaxing music (‘Miserere’, Allegri) (RM), 2) sound of rippling water (SW), and 3) rest without acoustic stimulation (R). Salivary cortisol and salivary alpha-amylase (sAA), heart rate (HR), respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA), subjective stress perception and anxiety were repeatedly assessed in all subjects. Authors hypothesized that listening to RM prior to the stress test, compared to SW or R would result in a decreased stress response across all measured parameters.

Rhythm is the timing of musical sounds and silences that occur over time, of the steps of a dance , or the meter of spoken language and poetry. In some performing arts , such as hip hop music, the rhythmic delivery of the lyrics is one of the most important elements of the style. Rhythm is also seen as a regular recurring motion at regular intervals , symmetry , movement marked by the regulated succession of strong and weak elements, or of opposite or different conditions.

Music theory encompasses the nature and mechanics of music. It often involves identifying patterns that govern composers’ techniques and examining the language and notation of music. In a grand sense, music theory distills and analyzes the parameters or elements of music – rhythm, harmony ( harmonic function ), melody , structure, form , and texture Broadly, music theory may include any statement, belief, or conception of or about music. 8 People who study these properties are known as music theorists, and they typically work as professors in colleges, universities, and music conservatories. Some have applied acoustics , human physiology , and psychology to the explanation of how and why music is perceived Music theorists publish their research in music theory journals and university press books.
