Treble, Bass, Alto, and Tenor Clefs in Music Reading and Notation. Untitled. Listen to the lovely orchestra of crickets singing at human speed [audio] [updated. The Sacred Geometry Of Music. The Sacred Geometry Of Music by Andrew Lorimer Music uses the laws of vibration to manifest aurally what exists at the center of everything.

The Sacred Geometry Of Music

Into our reality springs a non-visual harmonic law that is universal. There's a reason so many people love 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow.' A songwriting expert reveals it. Why did "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" get into our hearts and stay there?

There's a reason so many people love 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow.' A songwriting expert reveals it.

It's not hard to see why "The Wizard of Oz" was a smash hit back in the day. It was one of the first films to use color and had major star power with a young Judy Garland. Know Every Note on the Guitar in 9 Days. Controlling brain cells with sound waves. Salk scientists have developed a new way to selectively activate brain, heart, muscle and other cells using ultrasonic waves.

Controlling brain cells with sound waves

The new technique, dubbed sonogenetics, has some similarities to the burgeoning use of light to activate cells in order to better understand the brain. This new method--which uses the same type of waves used in medical sonograms--may have advantages over the light-based approach--known as optogenetics--particularly when it comes to adapting the technology to human therapeutics. It was described September 15, 2015 in the journal Nature Communications. "Light-based techniques are great for some uses and I think we're going to continue to see developments on that front," says Sreekanth Chalasani, an assistant professor in Salk's Molecular Neurobiology Laboratory and senior author of the study. The Shape of Song. Fibonacci sequence in music. What Phi (the golden ratio) Sounds Like. Math + Music = ? The beauty of maths was given a unique opportunity to shine last weekend, as the London Institute of Education played host to Bridges 2006, a conference celebrating mathematical connections in music and art.

Math + Music = ?

Over two hundred delegates, some mathematicians, some artists and some both, came together to witness more than a hundred presentations and a visual arts exhibition, and — probably most importantly — to talk and exchange ideas. Non-Spin Return, a sculpture by Simon Thomas based on the idea of a collapsing universe. That maths and art overlap is an idea that many people, especially regular Plus readers, will be familiar with. Mathematical structures abound in art and music and — as any mathematician will tell you — maths can be as beautiful as any piece of art and doing it requires a unique kind of creativity. But opportunities to explore the connections between art and maths in practice are few and far between. A fractal image based on a Kleinian group, created by Jos Leys. Got rhythm? You can learn languages and reading better. Mechanical metronome (credit: Wikimedia Commons) Northwestern University researchers have found biological evidence linking the ability to keep a beat to the neural encoding of speech sounds.

Got rhythm? You can learn languages and reading better

The study has significant implications for reading, according to Nina Kraus, director of Northwestern’s Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory. The study demonstrates that accurate beat-keeping involves synchronization between the parts of the brain responsible for hearing as well as movement. The experiment To investigate the relationship between beat-keeping and auditory processing, 124 Chicago high school students visited Kraus’s lab and were given two tests. In the first, they were asked to listen to a metronome and tap their finger along to it on a special tapping pad. Measuring the accuracy of tapping to a metronome rhythm (top: metronome sound: bottom: auditory brainstem response electrical response) (credit: Adam Tierney et al. Music Training and Neuroplasticity.

With our multi sensory brain, music harnesses powers of nature, culture, and mind.

Music Training and Neuroplasticity

How much is the brain changed by the effects of music training and neuroplasticity? Music is one of the most demanding cognitive and neural challenges, requiring very accurate timing of multiple actions, precise interval control of pitch not involved in language, and multiple different ways of producing sound. Auditory and motor actions influence each other in a constant interplay, which is largely unknown. Brain Lesion Effects on Music All brain imaging is done in a time scale of seconds, but the brain functions in the scale of milliseconds. A lesion in the auditory cortex causes “amusia” where a patient can speak and understand everyday sounds, but cannot notice wrong notes in tunes, or remember melodies.Another case, a 71-year-old cellist, had encephalitis and lost ordinary memory, but remembers music.

But, recent research shows that when studying infants these differences do not necessarily exist. Carlos Vives - Viña Del Mar 2014 Completo. Music Theory For Dummies Cheat Sheet. Cheat Sheet If you're trying to learn how to play music, read music, or brush up on improvising and performing with other musicians, music theory is important.
