The 19th century also witnessed a number of philosophical developments which would have a significant effect on art. The growth of political thought, for instance, led Courbet and others to promote a socially conscious form of Realist painting – see also Realism to Impressionism ). Also, the publication of The Interpretation of Dreams (1899) by Sigmund Freud, popularized the notion of the “subconscious mind”, causing artists to explore Symbolism and later Surrealism. The new self-consciousness which Freud promoted, led to (or at least coincided with) the emergence of German Expressionism , as artists turned to expressing their subjective feelings and experiences. Smith also leaves a legacy as an influential educator, who taught at the original Vancouver School of Art and later at the University of British Columbia, and as an arts philanthropist. Ken James, who co-founded the Artists for Kids Foundation with Smith in 1989 as a way to encourage well known Canadian artists to donate prints for arts education, remembers him as the most generous person I have ever met”.

Review, 15 September 1987: 16. The field of Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth has been growing and developing during the last twenty years. A landmark study by Clark, McCorkle, and Williams (1981) was the first published treatment protocol for music therapists for working with labor and delivery patients. Their investigation was a preliminary study of the effectiveness of music for pain relief during labor and delivery. They found that music serves several functions in the natural childbirth process including attention focusing, distraction from pain, stimulating pleasure responses, focusing breathing, and as a conditioned stimulus for relaxation.

You will also need the prime paint, usually in white color, to prepare the wall and cover the surface before you even start painting your artwork. And the main thing to have in mind if you’re painting a large wall surface is that choosing the right paints is equally important as calculating the right amount. So once you like your choice of paint you are ready to leave home and create your painted masterpiece. But paint isn’t the only thing you’ll be using and there are additional tools that you simply must have. Gibson, Ann Eden.

But it was his 1993 exhibition at Vancouver’s Equinox Gallery of a series of paintings called Black, inspired by his wartime experience during the Allied invasion of Sicily when he was wounded on Pachino Beach, that showed his versatility and breadth as an artist. Conceived as collages, the dark canvasses were made with bits of his old leather-covered army tarpaulin, stenciled lettering and even his dog tag. The series was more recently shown in a 2017 solo show at the Vancouver Art Gallery, which acquired some of the works. Wylie, Charles. Two Grays I, 1975.” Ellsworth Kelly in Dallas. Exh. cat.

Not only is repetition extraordinarily prevalent, but you can make non-musical sounds musical just by repeating them. The psychologist Diana Deutsch, at the University of California, San Diego, discovered a particularly powerful example – the speech-to-song illusion. The illusion begins with an ordinary spoken utterance, the sentence ‘The sounds as they appear to you are not only different from those that are really present, but they sometimes behave so strangely as to seem quite impossible.’ Next, one part of this utterance – just a few words – is looped several times. Finally, the original recording is represented in its entirety, as a spoken utterance. When the listener reaches the phrase that was looped, it seems as if the speaker has broken into song, Disney-style. The speech-to-song illusion reveals that the exact same sequence of sounds can seem either like speech or like music, depending only on whether it has been repeated. Repetition can actually shift your perceptual circuitry such that the segment of sound is heard as music: not thought about as similar to music, or contemplated in reference to music, but actually experienced as if the words were being sung. The speech-to-song illusion suggests something about the very nature of music: that it’s a quality not of the sounds themselves, but of a particular method our brain uses to attend to sounds. The ‘musicalisation’ shifts your attention from the meaning of the words to the contour of the passage (the patterns of high and low pitches) and its rhythms (the patterns of short and long durations), and even invites you to hum or tap along with it. In fact, part of what it means to listen to something musically is to participate imaginatively. Dalton, T.A., & Krout, R.E. (2006).

However, contact among civilizations caused rapid spread and adaptation of most instruments in places far from their origin. By the Middle Ages, instruments from Mesopotamia were in maritime Southeast Asia, and Europeans played instruments from North Africa. Development in the Americas occurred at a slower pace, but cultures of North, Central, and South America shared musical instruments. By 1400, musical instrument development slowed in many areas and was dominated by the Occident. During her career Nikki has worked as an interior stylist and designer, also spending time involved with community arts.Today she produces paintings full of colour which evolve by layering a mix of acrylics, oil pastels and collage. At first glance, the bold patterns in John Walker’s recent paintings and drawings appear to mark a change in direction from the large gritty paintings of tidal pools of Maine that were his last body of work. On further viewing, it becomes apparent that his familiar landscapes of mud, water, fire and tides have become compressed into signs or ideograms. These perhaps reflect time spent in Australia during the1980s when he made a study of boriginal bark and cave paintings as well as the abstract lineage of modernism. Ruud, E. (2012).

The effects of music relaxation and muscle relaxation techniques on sleep quality and emotional measures among individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder. Mental Illness, 4(2), e13. In light of this finding, there has been particular controversy about music eliciting negative emotions. Cognitivists argue that choosing to listen to music that elicits negative emotions like sadness would be paradoxical, as listeners would not willingly strive to induce sadness. However, emotivists purport that music does elicit negative emotions, and listeners knowingly choose to listen in order to feel sadness in an impersonal way, similar to a viewer’s desire to watch a tragic film. The reasons why people sometimes listen to sad music when feeling sad has been explored by means of interviewing people about their motivations for doing so. As a result of this research it has indeed been found that people sometimes listen to sad music when feeling sad to intensify feelings of sadness. Other reasons for listening to sad music when feeling sad were; in order to retrieve memories, to feel closer to other people, for cognitive reappraisal, to feel befriended by the music, to distract oneself, and for mood enhancement.
