Art and Music History

...Art may come in the form of painting, music, theater, cinema, dance and sculpture. Art is not limited to these categories, but these are the most common. As a child, my first exposure to art was in the form of music. Growing up in Western Kentucky, bluegrass played a large part of my life. My grandfather taught me to play the banjo and guitar starting at the age of 4. I first experienced painting in elementary school beginning in the 1st grade. Cinema has always been a part of my life, but I had not considered it art until I was able to properly define it. I experienced dance in high school while taking an elective ballroom dancing course for a semester. I have experienced theater, but not enough to form an opinion about it. Lastly, sculpture had a small influence when I briefly experimented with it in high school art classes. The most valuable and influential form of art to myself is music. Music has always been a large part of my life. In total, I play 5 instruments. Guitar is the primary instrument I choose to play. My grandfather taught me as a child and I have continued to play every day for many years. I began to perform at a young age in churches and community functions. Later, in high school I started a band with a few other local musicians and we played together for about 4 years. Currently I am in a band composed of all military members; we often play in different small venues in Las Vegas, Nevada. Without music, I would not fell like a complete person. It has......

Music

...Essay # 3 Music is a universal language that transcends boundaries and bond people even thousands of miles apart (Universal). Being a musician, words are not needed when composing a song. Music is understood by all cultures with or without the use of words. Having musical intelligence means one understands the significance of music and can display it through the production of a beautiful sound. Musicianship is a form of art which allows the expression of emotions and explores your personal skills in creativity and hard work. As a young child, I always found myself interested in the sounds of jazz music. The melodies and harmonies of the wood wind family appeased my mind to ease. In my earlier teenaged years, I would begin to explore the Clarinet. At this time, my band director felt this was the best fit for me. As it was, I went on to become the best player in the band. To be totally honest with you, I had imagined myself playing the trumpet for quite some time. About three years later, I found myself wanting to play in the Jazz Band. Being that the Clarinet wasn’t a Jazz instrument, I taught myself how to play the Saxophone, this was about three years after I learned how to play the Clarinet. It only took me a month to learn the Saxophone and I was now ready to play in the Jazz Band. I was announced to have been the best Tenor Saxophone player and one of the top Saxophonists in the band. I then took my talents even further and began teaching others how to...

Music Art

...Course Date Music and Art The ‘alleluia’ is an organum by leonine. An organum is a polyphonic religious music, which was traditional during the early gothic era. This era referred to as the Ars Antiqua, translates as ‘the old art.’ This music is similar to the florid organum. “Marriage of the virgin” is located at the Arena chapel in Padua. It is the eleventh scene in the Italian fresco cycle by Giotto di Bondone’s “life of the virgin.” Joaquin’s “ave Maria,” a renaissance choral work, was a four-voice motet. This renaissance period demonstrated features of music art such as the, clear vocal, articulation. After using the Gregorian chant for the opening, he grounds the remaining part of the motet on a chant melody. The four voices then sing together Virgo Serena and generate closing punctuation of this section. Joaquin alters the textures using the contrast four, three, or two voices to create separate musical sections. Leonardo da Vinci painted the annunciation in Florence. This is a representation of the annunciation where angel Gabriel tells Virgin Mary that she would conceive and have Jesus. Greek art is vastly popular. “Orpheus” was Monteverdi’s first opera and used it to synthesize all the music genres that were available to him at the time. The main feature of the Orpheus’s is to be dramatically strong and melodically fascinating. At first, he is seemingly not conscious with his voice is almost monotonous. Thereon, it reaches its exquisite climax with the music......

The 21st century is known as the “era of anxiety”, and stress is one of the biggest problems when it comes to health of the modern man (Изapд, 199; Nadel, 2006). Although stress and anxiety are often used separately but it is crucial that the stress deals with emotions which includes anxiety and affects a person’s psychological well-being and overall body functions and health (Lazarus, 1999). While significant progress has been made in the development of both psychosocial and pharmacological treatments for people who have fallen victim to serious mental disorders but the number of people who have taken assistance from the available therapies is significantly low (Christian et al., 2013).

 Music and art are how a culture expresses its creativity. Creativity is the base of learning. In the past years neuroscientists have explored the way our brains perceive, and react to music and art, including studies of the relationship between musical experience and emotion, and between our auditory and visual systems.

I had a good seat with a fair view in the top right cascade of the theatre. The recital began promptly at the scheduled time as expected. When Mr. Howard was introduced the lights were dimmed down a little and were centered on the stage. Mr. Howard began by positioning the violin carefully under his neck. When Mr. Howard started playing his violin you could feel the vibration from each piece he performed. Mr. Howard performed Preludio. Gavotte en Rondeau by Bach which was a perpetual motion masterpiece and a ‘country’ dance of French origin.

...Music is an integral part of our life. We can hear music everywhere: in the streets and at home, over the radio and on TV, in the shops and in the parks. People all over the world are fond of music. They listen to music, they dance to music, they learn to play musical instruments. It is varied because it reflects different human emotions. If we ask several people what kind of music they like, all of them will give different answers. Tastes differ. But the world of music is boundless and everybody can find there something that satisfies his tastes and demands. And all the people will agree that our world will be dull without music.

Art Rock Music

...I don’t think that art rock is pretentious or arrogant music at all. The type of music that an individual or a band chooses to create does not define their intelligence level or how well educated they are. The art rock is a genre that is just like any other genre of music that faces some negativity from different sections of people or fans. Art Rock gets the controversy because of the images of the bands or individuals and the message that they pass in their sings. The controversies however do not narrow down that the individuals are pretending or are not intelligent enough.it is just a new way of creating new music for the world and hence it should not be seen as if the bands or individuals are pretending in their passing of the message. For most of the artists that were involved rock, they hardly opened up about their actual sexual preference until later on in their careers. Much of their affiliation with homosexuality was actually assumed by the media, critics and their fans. Some of these assumptions were however proven to be correct when the artists later on actually came out as homosexuals but initially this had just been speculations. Early in glitter rocks artists’ expression about being homosexuals was part of their image, part of the wow factor and a way in which they would be able to receive more attention from the media for being something new different which might have received either good or bad reactions from their initial fan base. ......
