Yevgeniy Fiks opens his exhibition, Andy Warhol and the Pittsburgh Labor Files under the subtitle Capitalism or Socialism? , at the Warhol Museum on October 10. The show features documentary evidence the artist has gathered about left-wing political, economic, and artistic life in Pittsburgh which occured during the early years of Warhol’s life. Exhibited on the seventh floor of the museum, the show runs until 10 January 2016. These affordances in music are worthy of consideration with respect to the high levels of physical inactivity among adults in the developed world (Wen et al., 2011). The World Health Organisation (WHO, 2011) recommends we complete a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise every week (for example, 30 minutes brisk walking on 5 days of the week). Unfortunately, few adults achieve this level of physical activity and, as a result, are at high risk of chronic ill health such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes (Haskell et al., 2007). Music during exercise leads to improved exercise experience and performance (Karageorghis & Priest, 2012a; 2012b). Theorists suggest that these benefits from music listening during exercise also have the potential to increase exercise participation and adherence (Karageorghis, 2008), which may therefore improve compliance with physical acitity guidlines. However, evidence supporting the notion of changes in exercise behaviour as a result of music listening is limited (Clark et al., 2016; Karageorghis, 2008) (Figure 2). Lichtenstein took this image from an actual strip-cartoon, drawn by Irv Novick in 1962 for a publication entitled All-American Men of War” that was published by DC Comics. He has therefore been accused of plagiarism in his work – not only here but in other works – but in his defence it could be said that many artists down the centuries have done similar things by taking an existing image and presenting it to a different public in a novel way. That was certainly how Lichtenstein himself defended his work.

In many cultures, there is less distinction between performing and listening to music, since virtually everyone is involved in some sort of musical activity, often in a communal setting. In industrialized countries, listening to music through a recorded form, such as sound recording on record or radio became more common than experiencing live performance, roughly in the middle of the 20th century. By the 1980s, watching music videos was a popular way to listen to music, while also seeing the performers. The inspiration for the Griffith Gallery show came after Lewis saw an exhibition of WPA era art at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C. At the time, Lewis knew Loran as the author of a famous book, “Cézanne’s Composition,” which was first published in 1943, and remained in print for over 60 years. Lewis had not known of his work as an artist before seeing a landscape in that exhibition. As a celebrated founding member of the conceptual art movement of the 1970s, Lawrence Weiner has inspired several generations of artists to explore the parameters of the traditional art object. Weiner employs the immediacy and universality of language to break down the barriers of art-historical precedents by inviting the viewer to interpret the work from his or her own personally relevant contemporary reality – without the influences of historical reference. First seen in the exhibition Embrace!, AS TO BE IN PLAIN SIGHT was installed on a dizzying wall on level four of the Hamilton Building. Today, it can be viewed as an outdoor work on the south wall of the North Building. This is the part of the brain that recognizes tactile or touch feedback. This sensory cortex controls tactile feedback while playing an instrument or while dancing. This can also occur while at a concert or a club and the speakers play so loud that the whole building shakes and you can feel the vibrations in your body. When this occurs, you are feeling the low frequency vibrations that occur in the music. In relation to people who are deaf, this would be the case. Often when hearing is damaged, it is more difficult for a person to hear higher pitches and softer sounds. So when music can be recognized through touch, feeling the vibrations, it is that much more pleasing to those that are deaf or hard of hearing.
PATRICK GUYTON (1964 – ), A PENNSYLVANIAN. Guyton earned his chops the hard way, working his way up the ranks in Warner Bros and Loony Tunes. Much of his work was painting background scenes for animation productions. In the process he picked up the singular distinction of Guyton was to have designed and painted the background scenes for What’s Opera, Doc?” a limited edition animation celluloid (cel). This animation cel was included in the film’s preservation in the National Film Registry and was the first cartoon deemed by the United States Library of Congress as being among the most culturally, historically and aesthetically significant films of our time.

It features award-winning artists, including some of the Living National Treasures of Japan (a government-certified list of the country’s greatest craftspeople). Included in the collection is a mingei section of modern and antique crafts from Japan and Southeast Asia that share the Shibui sentiment of quiet and unassuming”. or technical derivations.

Drum Machine is an electronic musical instrument that creates percussion. Drum machines may imitate drum kits or other percussion instruments, or produce unique sounds. Most modern drum machines allow users to program their own rhythms. Drum machines may create sounds using analog synthesis or play prerecorded samples.
Afflicted by boredom and disheartenment at the existing forms of painting, Jean Arp devoted his initial years to poetry. In 1904, he published his first collection of poetries in Paris after passing out of Ecole des Arts et Metiers, Strasbourg. Later on, he took genuine initiative to re-discover his long lost interest in painting and sculpting. During 1905 to 1907, he studied at Kunstschule, Weimar, and in the year 1908, at Academie Julian. In 1909, Jean Arp shifted to Switzerland and organized an exhibition at Lucerne, under the label “Moderner Bund,” in 1911. The subsequent year, he happened to meet Robert & Sonia Delaunay in Paris and Russian artist, Vasily Kandinsky in Munich. In 1912, Jean Arp displayed his semi-figurative drawings at the second Blaue Reiter exhibition, and in 1913, he exhibited them with the ‘Expressionists’ in Berlin at the Erste deutsche Herbstsalon exhibition. Coined in 1983 by French composer François-Bernard Mâche, zoömusicology studies the musical aspects of animal sounds. According to Mâche, If it turns out that music is a widespread phenomenon in several living species apart from man, this will very much call into question the definition of music, and more widely that of man and his culture, as well as the idea we have of the animal itself”. I suggest a provisional definition: zoömusicology is the human valorization and analysis of the aesthetic qualities of non-human animal sounds. The musical quality of a tone, sounding higher or lower based on the frequency of its sound waves.

Thus, forms of mantles had temporal connotations, rendering the figures historically distinctive by differentiating a group in a first-century apostolic scheme from later generations of monastic fathers, the archbishop, and the martyrs. The program in its entirety evokes an eschatological future—a vision of the different generations of forefathers and fathers gathered together as they would be in heaven. Temporal aspects of the painted program would have been enriched yet again by the present tense of the viewers in the room. I suggested in another article that the painted programs are, in a sense, incomplete without monastic viewers and actors in the room: for example, the father who stood on the dais in front of the portrait of Apa Jeremias in Room 20 extended the lineage portrayed in the apse painting down to the present day.Thomas, Mimetic Devotion,” 60-61. The monastic portrait program might be characterized more appropriately as a protective presence even when the room was empty, but it was more actively engaged during synaxis. The same dynamic would have been at work in Chapel LVI, as in the earlier Roman and late antique domestic reception spaces of which Bergmann wrote: A living image would have completed the decorative program.”Bergmann, Roman House,” 255; at 254: Indeed, the Roman paterfamilias was most likely a focal feature in the visual reception of the house. From the entrance, the visitor would have seen him seated on a dais in the tablinum, back-lit from the peristyle with the lararium prominent behind him, receiving calls from clients. His image would fit neatly into the scheme of seated males in the paintings of the atrium.” In the interrelationship of depicted mantles, conceptions of mantles, and actual mantles worn by the viewing audience of latter-day fathers and monks, this garment can be seen as a critically important iconographic motif, employed to identify types of saints and elicit from monastic viewers a range of responses both social and personal. In addition, the mantles established a formal rather than an intimate setting, one rendered ceremonial by locating figures in presentational stances all around the room. El Sistema is a publicly financed voluntary sector music education program in Venezuela, founded in 1975 by Venezuelan educator, musician and activist José Antonio Abreu which later adopted the motto “Music for Social Change”. El Sistema-inspired programs provide “free classical music education that promotes human opportunity and development for impoverished children,” as quoted from the International Journal of Applied Psychoanalytic Studies. By 2015, according to official figures, El Sistema consisted of over 400 music centers and 700,000 young musicians. The original program in Venezuela provides 4 hours of musical training and rehearsal per week day after school, as well as work on the weekends. Most El Sistema-inspired programs in the United States provide 7 or more hours of instruction each week, as well as an instrument.
