Music is not only able to affect your mood but listening to particularly happy or sad music can even change the way we perceive the world, according to researchers from the University of Groningen. Music and mood are closely interrelated — listening to a sad or happy song on the radio can make you feel more sad or happy. However, such mood changes not only affect how you feel, they also change your perception. For example, people will recognize happy faces if they are feeling happy themselves.

Alessandro’s dedication was not limited to actual hospital visits; he took personal time to learn songs that were relevant to Dad and made recordings of their sessions together to be enjoyed at any given time. Alessandro appreciated the power of positive thoughts, and with his kind words, a smile, compassion, and a true desire to make Dad happy, he encouraged Dad’s participation, leaving us with cherished memories of my father having one last chance to express himself through music, smiling and enjoying life.

Participant 101, a 13 year-old Caucasian male, often remembers the first time he heard a favorite song as he listens in the present. He relates to different musical elements separately, such as the “standout instrument,” the tempo and the subject matter of the lyrics. He brings the distinct elements together during his listening experience in an intentional way such that they improve his mood. Interestingly, he feels that the music does this on its own, using language that reflects his perception that the music itself becoming happier. In the Imaginative Variation for 101, the researcher casts him as a scientist, combining various substances (which represent musical elements) to achieve his own desired result.

Style is a distinctive manner which permits the grouping of works into related categories , or any distinctive, and therefore recognizable, way in which an act is performed or an artifact made or ought to be performed and made. It refers to the visual appearance of a work of art that relates it to other works by the same artist or one from the same period, training, location, “school”, art movement or archaeological culture: “The notion of style has long been the art historian’s principal mode of classifying works of art. By style he selects and shapes the history of art”. Style is often divided into the general style of a period, country or cultural group, group of artists or art movement, and the individual style of the artist within that group style. Divisions within both types of styles are often made, such as between “early”, “middle” or “late”. In some artists, such as Picasso for example, these divisions may be marked and easy to see, in others they are more subtle. Style is seen as usually dynamic, in most periods always changing by a gradual process, though the speed of this varies greatly, between the very slow development in style typical of prehistoric art or Ancient Egyptian art to the rapid changes in Modern art styles. Style often develops in a series of jumps, with relatively sudden changes followed by periods of slower development. Robarts, J.Z. (2009).

But, the main influence in my realist art comes from contemporary realist artists who I think are better in depictions, yet, maybe not as good on the crafting-side of making a painting. I mean by that in regards to the use of techniques that ensure a very good and long preservation of paintings. Boer, D., & Abubakar, A. (2014).
