Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968), the most influential figure of the ‘Contemporary Art,’ was recognized for his strongly expressed contempt for the field of conventional ‘Fine Arts.’ He was in a way related to ‘Surrealist Movement,’ the descendant of ‘Cubism.’ Duchamp’s methodology and themes however, were not well received by ‘Cubists.’ This led to his inclination towards the ‘Dada Movement.’ “Nu descendant un escalier n° 2 (Nude Descending a Staircase, No.2)” was Marcel’s most famous as well as scandalous ‘Dadaist’ work, which also became a turning point of his life.

Muriel Barclay was born in Glasgow. Procter, S. (2005). Parents, children and their therapists. A collaborative research project examining therapists-parent interactions in a music therapy clinic. British Journal of Music Therapy, 19(2), 45-58. Combines ethnomusicology and experiential learning by exploring the diverse communities of Boston and their music. 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 … Read the rest

Jackson Pollock, a great American painter of the 20th century, established a distinct way of painting that produced a major impact on the world of art. Drumming is typically a group exercise. The therapist offers various kinds of drums to patients, and they play together with or without accompanying music. The therapist uses drumming to not only get patients involved in their therapy but also to help them engage with each other. Drumming is especially helpful for people who have difficulty communicating in a social situation, such as people with autism. The drum beats give them a way to interact with others on a nonverbal level. Chang, Y.S., Chu, H., Yang, C.Y., Tsai, J.C., Chung, M.H., Liao, Y.M., Chi, M.J., Liu, M.F. & Chou, K.R. (2015).

Daniel Cristian Chiriac, born 1972 in Romania, paints oil on canvas. An infant is often exposed to a mother’s speech that is musical in nature. It is possible that the motherly singing allows the mother to relay emotional messages to the infant. Infants also tend to prefer positive speech to neutral speech as well as happy music to negative music. It has also been posited that listening to their mother’s singing may play a role in identity formation. This hypothesis is supported by a study that interviewed adults and asked them to describe musical experiences from their childhood. Findings showed that music was good for developing knowledge of emotions during childhood. Vogiatzoglou, A., Himonides, E., Ockelford, A., & Welch, G. (2011).
