Founded in 1979, Modernism has since presented more than 450 exhibitions, both historical and contemporary, in media ranging from painting to photography, sculpture to performance, by an international roster of artists.

One of the most important and influential new media which came to prominence during the “Modern Era” is photography. Four genres in particular have become established. They include: Portrait Photography , a genre that has largely replaced painted portraits; Pictorialism (fl.1885-1915) a type of camera art in which the photographer manipulates a regular photo in order to create an “artistic” image; Fashion Photography (1880-present) a type of photography devoted to the promotion of clothing, shoes, perfume and other branded goods; Documentary Photography (1860-present), a type of sharp-focus camerawork that captures a moment of reality, so as to present a message about what is happening in the world; and Street Photography (1900-present), the art of capturing chance interactions of human activity in urban areas. Practiced by many of the world’s greatest photographers , these genres have made a major contribution to modern art of the 20th century. According to Tara Lal and Mortimer Chatterjee, Sunder’s use of drawing and video in performative modes mark her out as one of the most interesting voices in the contemporary Indian art scene”. Sunder’s works also include writings. Indeed, she finds that the medium or form follows the concept. 38 artists go back to their roots in this multimedia exhibition celebrating trees, transporting you from Japanese islands to Israeli olive groves.

This makes it difficult to cough effectively and significantly increases the risk of respiratory tract infections and pneumonia. People with quadriplegia often run out of air in the middle of a sentence and find it difficult to project their voices to speak over background noise. We conducted a randomized controlled trial to see if a 12-week therapeutic group singing intervention could improve respiratory function and voice projection for people with quadriplegia. We trained participants to use the muscles in their neck and shoulders more to help control their breath when singing. In comparison to participants who were allocated to a music listening and discussion group, the singing group improved their voice projection and maximum respiratory pressures. They also reported that the singing was enjoyable and motivated physical exercise and social engagement.
The painting includes a river (the St. Lawrence), a dock with a building, horses, people, a ferry crossing the river coming to the dock, a headland with boats and buildings in the distance. Large wet snowflakes fall from the overcast sky. Smoke spirals from the ferry. The picture is an impression rather than a realistic representation of a scene. Goodrich, John.

Pablo Picasso, one of the most famous artists of the 1900s, is best-known for co-founding cubism with Georges Braque. This still life incorporates the cubist aim of representing the world from multiple viewpoints. While the image initially appears to be an abstract mixture of colors and shapes, one can come to understand the image—and other Cubist works—by breaking it down and analyzing its parts.

Disorders in music and language provide another avenue to examine the resource-sharing hypothesis. Music-syntactic deficits have been observed in patients with lesions in typical language brain areas” (e.g., Patel et al., 2008; Sammler et al., 2011; but such disorders can also arise following damage to other regions, see Peretz, 1993 and Slevc et al., 2016), and in children with developmental language disorders (e.g., Jentschke et al., 2008). Language impairments have also been reported for some individuals with acquired amusia (e.g., Sarkamo et al., 2009). However, it is unclear whether individuals with developmental musical disorders exhibit deficits in both music- and language-syntactic processing. Neuburger, Susanne and Barbara Ruediger.

Through art over time, students can see how attitudes and concerns of various societies change. The most influential movements of “modern art” are (1) Impressionism; (2) Fauvism; (3) Cubism; (4) Futurism; (5) Expressionism; (6) Dada; (7) Surrealism; (8) Abstract Expressionism; and (9) Pop Art. Here is a recording of Pollock describing his way of painting. It was taken from a movie the British Broadcasting Corporation made about the artist in nineteen ninety-nine. Pitch is an aspect of a sound that we can hear, reflecting whether one musical sound, note or tone is “higher” or “lower” than another musical sound, note or tone. We can talk about the highness or lowness of pitch in the more general sense, such as the way a listener hears a piercingly high piccolo note or whistling tone as higher in pitch than a deep thump of a bass drum We also talk about pitch in the precise sense associated with musical melodies , basslines and chords Precise pitch can only be determined in sounds that have a frequency that is clear and stable enough to distinguish from noise. For example, it is much easier for listeners to discern the pitch of a single note played on a piano than to try to discern the pitch of a crash cymbal that is struck.
Along with rhythm comes the idea of rate or pace. Not every song is slow. Neither is every song fast. Tempo is the musical term that indicates the overall pace of an arrangement. Tempo markings include grave, meaning solemn and extremely slow or allegro, meaning fast and cheerful. A gamut of musical terms for rhythm exists. Her paintings are influenced by many everyday things especially the weather. The Scottish landscapes and seascapes are her main subject matter. The subjects are created from memories in a quirky manner, where figures and animals often feature in the paintings. Nikki feels that working from memory allows her art work to take on a stylized abstract feel. She paints on board and canvas which allows her to layer up mediums creating dense rich colours often discarding her paintbrush and using other means of getting paint onto canvas. In my early days, I would just setup anywhere that was convenient for my clients. However, my clients were not aware of how much space my setups would take. One time I was asked if I could share the desert table? Sure, I love deserts, but by the end of the event I had cookie crumbs and brownie bites all in my face paint. NOT GOOD. We expect our result provides an evidence for better music therapy for dementia patients with Japanese culture. Ansdell, G. (2010). Can Everything Become Music? Scrap Metal in Southern England. In B.

Music engages much of the brain, and coordinates a wide range of processing mechanisms. This naturally invites consideration of how music cognition might relate to other complex cognitive abilities. The tremendous ability that music has to affect and manipulate emotions and the brain is undeniable, and yet largely inexplicable. Very little serious research had gone into the mechanism behind music’s ability to physically influence the brain and even now the knowledge about the neurological effects of music is scarce.

Timbre also known as tone color or tone quality (from psychoacoustics ), is the perceived sound quality of a musical note, sound or tone. Timbre distinguishes different types of sound production, such as choir voices and musical instruments, such as string instruments, wind instruments, and percussion instruments. It also enables listeners to distinguish different instruments in the same category (e.g., an oboe and a clarinet, both woodwind instruments).

Since 17th-century encounters between the Wampanoag Nation and English Puritans, Boston has been characterized by intercultural contact and exchange. Discusses the history and legacies of such encounters, as well as present-day issues of diversity and belonging in Boston. Focuses on how communities reinforce their own cultural bonds through music and discusses alliances formed through shared experiences of diasporic, exilic, refugee, immigrant, and minority status. Through interdisciplinary, ethnographic analysis and practice, offers students an opportunity to explore how these inherently intersectional social dynamics—which engage issues of race, gender, class, ethnicity, etc.—play out through collective and individual musical practices. Ostinato is a motif or phrase that persistently repeats in the same musical voice, frequently in the same pitch. Well-known ostinato-based pieces include both classical compositions such as Ravel’s Boléro and the Carol of the Bells, and popular songs such as Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder’s “I Feel Love” (1977), Henry Mancini’s theme from Peter Gunn (1959), The Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” (1997), and April Ivy’s “Be Ok” (1997). Ilya and Emilia Kabakov’s installation, L’étrange cité , in the Grand Palais opened to rave reviews The white walls of a dream-like city labyrinth created by the artists allows visitors to wonder through representations of failed utopias, architectural and societal.
