Also, the actual sound need not be a continuous frequency sound wave such as a single tone or a musical note, but may be an acoustic wave made from a mechanical vibration, noise or even a single pulse of sound such as a bang”. The artists came from different backgrounds but painted in a similar style. Control groups, who received an alternative (non-music”) intervention, were found in nine research articles. Significant reduction of depression in corresponding control (non-music intervention”) groups was reported by two authors ( Hendricks et al., 1999 ; Albornoz, 2011 ). In one instance ( Albornoz, 2011 ) the relevant participants received only standard care, but in the other case ( Hendricks et al., 1999 ) an alternative treatment (Cognitive-Behavioral activities) was reported. Medical conceptions are in a constant state of change. To achieve improvements in areas of disease prevention and treatment, psychology is increasingly associated with clinical medicine and general practitioners. Under the guidance of an experienced music therapist, the patient receives a multimodal and very structured treatment approach. That is the reason why we can find specialists for music therapy in fields other than psychosomatics or psychiatry today. Examples are internal medicine departments and almost all rehabilitation centers. The acoustic and musical environment literally opens a portal to our unconscious mind. Music therapy often comes into play when other forms of treatment are not effective enough or fail completely. Trauger-Querry, B., & Haghighi, K.R. (1999).

Music is sound that’s organized by people on purpose, to dance to, to tell a story, to make other people feel a certain way, or just to sound pretty or be entertaining. Music is organized on many different levels. Sounds can be arranged into melodies, harmonies, rhythms, textures and phrases. Beats, measures, cadences, and form, all help to keep the music organized and understandable. But the most basic way that music is organized is by arranging the actual sound waves themselves so that the sounds are interesting and pleasant and go well together.

Musical Aptitude refers to a person’s innate ability to acquire skills and knowledge required for musical activity, and may influence the speed at which learning can take place and the level that may be achieved. Study in this area focuses on whether aptitude can be broken into subsets or represented as a single construct, whether aptitude can be measured prior to significant achievement, whether high aptitude can predict achievement, to what extent aptitude is inherited, and what implications questions of aptitude have on educational principles.

These are definitely noteworthy artists, and I thank you for the introduction to these fine works. Think about American music in the 1930s and 1940s. The country was recovering from the Great Depression and was facing the War to end all wars.” People needed music to take their minds off their daily fears and struggles. And the music of performers like Ella Fitzgerald and Glenn Miller did just that. Think about the 1960s. People were concerned about how the government was dealing with the crisis in Vietnam. They needed ways to express their concern and the folk music style that we associated with Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Peter, Paul, and Mary satisfied that social need. Those are just two examples out of many in American music history, not to mention the rest of the world. Music is constantly changing – often it is to satisfy a social need. A year-long, free exhibition of the works of Hungarian artist Dóra Maurer, who was a teacher and artist in the underground bohemian community growing up during socialist Hungary. Many researchers argue that emotional responses to music should be at least partially similar to emotional responses in other domains such as, for example, vision and speech (Peretz, 2001). To this end, introspective and behavioral approaches as well as peripheral physiological measurements of hemodynamic, respiratory, galvanic skin responses, and other parameters of bodily function have been used (Bartlett, 1996). The precise relationships between subjective experience and physiological concomitants during the processing of emotions are largely unknown. However, it is likely that brain research will provide important new information to reduce the amount of unexplained variances in psychophysiological studies of emotion in general and musical emotion in particular. Moreover, studying musical emotions from a neuroscientific perspective seems particularly promising with respect to the time course and dynamics of human emotion processing (Koelsch, 2006; Grewe et al., 2005; for a review of continuous measurement techniques used in behavioral studies see Schubert, 2001). Sumakshi Singh, 36: The question of how people see, says Sumakshi Singh, with their eyes, with their bodies in space, with their minds, is key to her work. Over the years, her artistic questions seemed to have shifted from the space which we experience as place, to the spaces inhabited more subtly, spaces of memory, conditioning and imagination.

As well as his work on the composition of shapes and colours, Kandinsky had synesthesia. His condition can be seen as a decisive factor in triggering the artist’s desire to create a new artistic language. His senses intertwined and became one, transforming sounds into shapes and colours. Kandinsky’s use of colour is much more than a question of aesthetics; it was inherent to the way he perceived the world. In this abstract painting, each colour has been carefully chosen and is filled with symbolic meaning. In his abstract two-dimensional painting, Kandinsky succeeds in ensuring that the spectator can feel and hear an entire orchestra playing a Wagner opera. Weber, S. (2000). Remembering and Forgiving. In D. Aldridge (Ed.), Music Therapy in Dementia Care (pp. 184-194). London: Jessica Kingsley. But, before rhythm, lets talk about pulse. Like every living organism, music has a pulse – beats (like that of the heart). And although we not always hear it, it is always there. Do you remember when children learn to clap their hands to follow songs? There is a constant, implicit, beat that happens periodically. In some cases, it is in fact played by instruments. For example, in Australian aboriginal music it is often played by clap sticks. Most contemporary artists do not draw rigid distinctions between high art and popular culture. For instance, a number of contemporary artists embrace traditional techniques of fiber art but use them to create unorthodox forms or address current social and political issues. Along these lines, Ghada Amer has used thread to embroider on canvas repeated motifs of nude women engaged in sexual acts, then partially obscured the embroidered images with gestural painted brushstrokes. Her themes include the expression and repression of female sexuality and eroticism in both Western and Islamic societies. Another example of intermixing visual cultures is the complex array of interactions between science and contemporary art , with many artists engaging with scientific imagery and ideas in their practice. For example, Wim Delvoye ‘s ongoing series called Cloaca imagines humans as cyborgs, representing the human digestive system as a kind of biomechanical contraption. Finally, many 21st-century artists are deeply affected by their immersion in global visual culture, which is now made vividly present through online networks. Many artists maintain a personal website, and some create art expressly for dissemination through social media. As always, new technologies provide new opportunities and challenges.
