Ambient Music is a genre of music that puts an emphasis on tone and atmosphere over traditional musical structure or rhythm. Ambient music is said to evoke an “atmospheric”, “visual”, or “unobtrusive” quality. Able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting. Each type of sound has its own range of frequencies and power, affecting listeners in positive or negative ways. Organized sound in Western Classical music is generally soothing to the human ear. On the other hand, very loud sounds or noise, which emits power of more than 85 dB may cause permanent hearing loss in humans when exposed continuously to it for a period of more than eight hours. Unwanted sounds are unpleasant to humans and may cause stress and hypertension as well as affect the cognitive function of children.

Often referrals for music therapy are made because patients lack motivation for therapy and have low mood. Our colleagues assume that music will be motivating, improve mood, and offer creative ways to achieve rehabilitation goals. They are right. From a clinical perspective we frequently see our patients experience these benefits from music therapy. However, we have also conducted a number of research projects investigating the effects of music and music therapy on physical health and emotional wellbeing. Summaries of some of our relevant music therapy research projects are presented to illustrate how music can improve the health of people with significant health conditions. Popular Music is music with wide appeal that is typically distributed to large audiences through the music industry. These forms and styles can be enjoyed and performed by people with little or no musical training. It stands in contrast to both Art Music and traditional or Folk Music Art music was historically disseminated through the performances of written music, although since the beginning of the recording industry, it is also disseminated through recordings. Traditional music forms such as early Blues songs or hymns were passed along orally, or to smaller, local audiences. Miller, Jo. Eighteenth National Print Exhibition. Exh. cat.

Effects of group songwriting on depression and quality of life in acute psychiatric inpatients: a randomized three group effectiveness study. Nordic Journal of Music Therapy, 22(2), 131-148. These initial study results, published in the journal Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, provide evidence of the benefits of music education at a time when many schools around the nation have either eliminated or reduced music and arts programs. The study shows music instruction speeds up the maturation of the auditory pathway in the brain and increases its efficiency. Art Basel international art fair staged annually in Basel, Switzerland; Miami Beach, Florida; and Hong Kong, selling the works of established and emerging artists. The commercial fairs also offer parallel programming produced in collaboration with the host city’s local institutions. While Art Basel provides a platform for galleries to show and sell their work to buyers, it also attracts a large international audience of art spectators and students. Yet while this declaration has the ring of certainty, that does not mean he had everything figured out. In many of his early drawings, a sense of striving is almost palpable: All wound up, they are the sticky chrysalis before the canvases emerged, fully formed, cool and collected, in the early 1950s. The central issues that Reinhardt’s ultimate” paintings elegantly resolve are alive in the early works as fascinating, snarled problems: What to do about color? About the ethics of representation? About biomorphic abstraction and Surrealism? About scale? And, most critically: What to do about drawing? The recurring questions of these early works would become the laconic statements of his blue, red, and black paintings.

Thanks for all the useful tips. You cover a lot. I haven’t had a chance to finish it all but I pinned it so I can go back to it. I like that you talked about artists not learning enough before they start trying to paint and sell it and what consequences that can bring. I also love all your tips on how to make money from your paintings and your ideas on what sells well like pets or neighborhood scenes.

Cut steel, placed on a base. The black wall at the back helps define the space. The artist has made many variations of the walking woman, sometimes using wood, paintings. The purpose of this study was to investigate parents’ perceived training needs and attitudes toward the use of music with their children who have developmental delays. Parent participants were recruited through an early intervention organization—Early Steps—in the Southeastern region of the US. Participants’ children were all under three years of age and were eligible to receive early intervention services. Using music performance in musical therapy is a great technique for building self-esteem. With the therapist there to support them through the performance, patients have a chance to build their self-confidence. and a well-developed art vocabulary is important to art appreciation. These aspects of the program are best assessed through written assessment and oral presentation; teachers should not hesitate to use these methods merely because they are not traditionally considered to be art evaluation methods. Studio Projects With each module a number of projects are suggested. This studio experience should be used to determine what concepts and skills have been learned from the immediate experiences leading up to it. Prior learning experiences should also be visible in these. A balance must be struck between process and product in these projects. Tests Written tests, quizzes, and recognition tests are appropriate for many of the concepts described in this guide.

Standing wave is a combination of two waves moving in opposite directions, each having the same amplitude and frequency. Musical tones are tones generated by standing waves produced in or on the musical instrument. Musical instruments produce pitches by trapping sound waves by making them bounce back and forth between two or more surfaces or points. Musical instruments i.e. the container has to be the perfect size (length) for a certain wavelength, so that waves bouncing back or being produced at each end reinforce each other, instead of interfering with each other and cancelling each other out. And it really helps to keep the container very narrow, so that you don’t have to worry about waves bouncing of the sides and complicating things. So you have a bunch of regularly-spaced waves that are trapped, bouncing back and forth in a container that fits their wavelength perfectly. If you could watch these waves, it would not even look as if they are traveling back and forth. Instead, waves would seem to be appearing and disappearing regularly at exactly the same spots, and these trapped waves are called standing waves. So you have a sound wave trap, and you keep sending more sound waves into it. These trapped waves (standing waves) are useful for music because for a tone – a sound with a particular pitch to be generated – a group of sound waves has to be very regular, all exactly the same distance apart. Standing waves are transverse waves in string instruments travelling back and forth along the string due to reflections at the terminations of the string and terminations act as nodes; standing waves are longitudinal waves in wind instruments travelling back and forth along the length of instruments with nodes at open end. Perceiving language and music constitutes two of the highest level cognitive skills evident in humans. The concept that the hierarchy of syntactic structures found in language and music result in shared perceptual representations (e.g. Koelsch et al., 2002, Patel, 2003) contrasts with the idea that such stimuli are perceived using entirely disparate neural mechanisms (e.g. Peretz and Coltheart, 2003, Rogalsky et al., 2011), whilst others propose a more emergent functional architecture (Zatorre et al., 2002). Song is a well-known example of a stimulus category which evokes both linguistic and musical perception and therefore provides an avenue with which to explore the relationship between these perceptual systems. There is currently debate regarding the extent to which the representations of melody and lyrics are integrated or segregated during the perception of song. This issue has been examined in a wide range of experiments including integration of memory for melody and lyrics of songs (Serafine, 1984, Serafine et al., 1986), neurophysiological changes resulting from semantic and harmonic incongruities in familiar music (Besson et al., 1998, Bonnel et al., 2001), fMRI repetition suppression induced by listening to unfamiliar lyrics and tunes (Sammler et al., 2010) and modulations of BOLD response to changes in words, pitch and rhythm for both spoken and sung stimuli (Merrill et al., 2012).
