If you’re studying for a test, putting on background music that you like may seem like a good idea. But if you’re trying to memorize a list in order – facts, numbers, elements of the periodic table – the music may actually be working against you, a new study suggests. Researchers at the University of Wales Institute in Cardiff, United Kingdom, looked at the ability to recall information in the presence of different sounds. They instructed 25 participants between ages 18 and 30 try to memorize, and later recall, a list of letters in order.

A series of rectangular shapes which appear to be windows. Those on the left are different only in colour and surface decoration. The large window on the right has a number of bottle shapes sitting on its sill. Along the bottom is a series of brickshapes in a variety of colours. The fabric piece is matted with a neutral mat against a red background which is visible around the edges of the piece. Body art is that art which is made on, with, or consisting of, the human body. It also includes scarification, branding, scalpelling, shaping (for example tight-lacing of corsets), full body tattoo and body painting. Bunt, L., Burns, S., & Turton, P. (2000).

Nielsen’s first published commission included a suite of monotone and full colour illustrations for In Powder and Crinoline (1913) – a collection of modern fairy tales compiled by Arthur Quiller-Couch. A year later, his illustrations for the Norse fairy tales collected by AsbjÃ¶rnsen and Moe – considered by many to be among his masterpieces – were published in East of the Sun and West of the Moon (1914). Following World War I, Nielsen produced other great works, including illustrations for Fairy Tales by Hans Anderson (1923) and other collections of fairy tales published in Hansel and Gretel and other Stories by the Brothers Grimm (1925) and Red Magic (1930).

Fourier synthesis is a method of electronically constructing a signal with a specific and desired periodic waveform from a set of sine functions of different amplitudes and that have a harmonic sequence of frequencies. Fourier synthesis is used in electronic music applications to generate waveforms that mimic the sounds of familiar musical instruments. Researchers have recently begun to examine the neural basis of musical improvisation, one of the most complex forms of creative behavior. The emerging field of improvisation neuroscience has implications not only for the study of artistic expertise, but also for understanding the neural underpinnings of domain-general processes such as motor control and language production. This review synthesizes functional magnetic resonance imagining (fMRI) studies of musical improvisation, including vocal and instrumental improvisation, with samples of jazz pianists, classical musicians, freestyle rap artists, and non-musicians. A network of prefrontal brain regions commonly linked to improvisatory behavior is highlighted, including the pre-supplementary motor area, medial prefrontal cortex, inferior frontal gyrus, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, and dorsal premotor cortex. Activation of premotor and lateral prefrontal regions suggests that a seemingly unconstrained behavior may actually benefit from motor planning and cognitive control. Yet activation of cortical midline regions points to a role of spontaneous cognition characteristic of the default network. Together, such results may reflect cooperation between large-scale brain networks associated with cognitive control and spontaneous thought. The improvisation literature is integrated with Pressing’s theoretical model, and discussed within the broader context of research on the brain basis of creative cognition. In addition to the tours, I’ve also had the opportunity to create demo videos that guide viewers step-by-step through a variety of different studio processes using supplies and materials from home or the grocery store. We’re calling this video series #StayHomeStudio. Watching on a computer screen is an unusual way to learn a new art technique as that’s usually a pretty hands-on process. But we refuse to stop engaging our members, visitors, and friends even during this time of social distancing. Carrier, David.

His recent show at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Matters of Life and Death, â€ is centered on his paintings of cadavers, which, along with lushly painted near abstract representations of synagogues, rabbis, chandeliers, seances, and archaeological digs, were part of his exploration of the astral plane. This concept posits a state of being that exists between life and death and is informed by Bloom’s deep reading of theosophical texts, as well as his interest in mysticism, kabbalah, and other esoteric religions.

While this is a valid approach to exhibit artwork by often underrepresented groups, it can take away from the individual artist’s personal intention of their work. For the month of June, N4th Gallery seeks to avoid distraction and rediscover the joys of artistic expression. By uniting all different kinds of art through seemingly arbitrary objects (a tin can and a banana), this show hopes to bring the focus back to the art itself. The walls will be covered with work by painters, sculptors and photographers; children, youth and seniors; amateurs and masters; artists with and without disabilities.

Take a close look at the clothing we wear today to discover how we embellish it. Examine such items as jackets, jewellery, footwear, T-shirts, and sweatshirts. How do people associated with specific occupations dress? How do rock musicians dress, religious leaders, business people, artists, teachers, firefighters? Are there adornments particular to each of these groups. Observe people over a period of time; on the street, in the school corridors or at the local hangout. Document or record your observations of the way they use embellishment. Bunt, L., & Pavlicevic, M. (2001). Music and Emotion: Perspectives from Music Therapy. In P. Juslin & J.
