Braque later introduced Henri to Pablo Picasso, and the three struck a lifelong friendship. By 1912, Laurens started exploring the sculptural possibilities of ‘Cubism.’ He combined painting and sculpting to produce a revolutionary body of works. “Bottle and Glass” (1915), “Figure” (1917), “Mask” (1918), and “Guitar” (1918), are some of his ‘Cubist’ style works. Picasso liked Henri’s works and introduced him to the art dealer, Léonce Rosenberg, who often bought his works and even supported him during the World War. Meanwhile, in 1915, Henri illustrated a book of his author friend, Pierre Reverdy. Temporary Tattoos performed at corporate functions through to private events.

Another interesting conjecture relates music to human anxiety related to death, and the consequent quest for meaning. Dissanayake (2009), for example, has argued that humans have used music to help cope with awareness of life’s transitoriness. In a manner similar to religious beliefs about the hereafter or a higher transcendental purpose, music can help assuage human anxiety concerning mortality. Neurophysiological studies regarding music-induced chills can be interpreted as congruent with this conjecture. For example, music-induced chills produce reduced activity in brain structures associated with anxiety (Blood and Zatorre, 2001). Related ideas stress the role music plays in feelings of transcendence. For example, (Frith, 1996, p. 275) has noted that: We all hear the music we like as something special, as something that defies the mundane, takes us out of ourselves,” puts us somewhere else.” Thus, music may provide a means of escape. The experience of flow states (Nakamura and Csikszentmihalyi, 2009), peaks (Maslow, 1968), and chills (Panksepp, 1995), which are often evoked by music listening, might similarly be interpreted as forms of transcendence or escapism (see also Fachner, 2008).

In Autumn 2017, a major monograph was published by Lund Humphries. A new publication by Modern Art will be released on the occasion of the exhibition. Here’s a 60-second intro to the enigmatic work of Clyfford Still, one of the leading Abstract Expressionist painters. Why is he less known in the UK than the likes of Rothko and Pollock? The RA’s Artistic Director Tim Marlow explains. We regularly hold new exhibitions in the gallery. Music is a binding factor in our social milieu; it is a feature with and about us, a universal still shrouded in endless mystery. Music cuts across diverse cognitive capabilities and resources, including numeracy, language, and spacial perception. In the same way, music intersects with cultural boundaries, facilitating our social self” by linking our shared experiences and intentions. Perhaps one primordial influence is the social interaction of parental attachments, which are fundamental to gaining a foothold in the social milieu, learning, and surviving; music and song are conduits for forging links across barriers, for making contact with others, and for being indoctrinated with the social milieu.
Oh, Martie, people always make a fuss about languages because a language is a big part of identity (and ownership). They may (and will) resist, revolt and make artificial rules, but in the end, the practical aspect of communication wins.

Studies have found that music is effective in decreasing stress preoperatively, postoperatively, and generally for the patient and the family members and friends. Patients who listened to music while waiting for surgery subjectively reported lower anxiety and also displayed lower blood pressure and pulse rates than those who did not. Generally, persons who listened to music during a hospital stay displayed lower anxiety scores than those who did not. Postoperative patients have pointed out the comforting aspect of music, and described a greater sense of control of their surroundings (McCaffrey & Locsin, 2004). Music is even effective in antenatal clinics. Hearing live performances of music significantly increased the number of accelerations in the fetal heartbeat, signaling good health (Art and Music, 2004). Infants as young as two months incline their attention toward pleasant consonant sounds and away from unpleasant dissonant sounds (Weinberger, 2004). Greenberg, Clement.
