Why Music Affects Us

Carmencitta Magazine - Why Music Affects Us 2

Music and language are uniquely human. A world without either would be hard to imagine. They are aspects of our need to communicate. So it could be said that, as is true of language, when music “speaks” our emotions “listen.”

Why and how does music speak to our emotions? To answer that, we need to consider: (1) the way that our brains process music; (2) our emotional makeup and cultural backgrounds, which influence our reaction to music; and (3) language, which can also affect our reaction.

Music and the Brain

Carmencitta Magazine - Why Music Affects Us 1Some suggest that language and logic are predominantly functions of the left side of the brain, while music is processed in the right side of the brain, which deals largely with feelings and emotions. Whether this is so or not, it is obvious that music evokes spontaneous reactions from listeners.

There is a closer relation between hearing and emotional arousal than there is between seeing and emotional arousal. . . . Seeing a wounded animal or suffering person who is silent may produce little emotional response in the observer. But once they start to scream, the onlooker is usually powerfully moved.”

Music, Lyrics, and You

One school of thought maintains that a given piece of music has a similar effect on all listeners. However, another says that reaction to a melody or song reflects an individual’s present state of mind or previous experience. An example of this might be when someone who has lost a loved one in death hears a certain song. The song may bring back memories and cause sadness or even cause tears to well up in the bereaved person’s eyes. Others who are not in that situation may sing that same song with a joyful heart.

Carmencitta Magazine - Why Music Affects Us 3jpgMusic helps to connect words or ideas with emotions. Hence, few television or radio advertisements are presented without musical accompaniment. Often the words do not make much sense. However, if the right background melody is used, the advertisement will play on the listeners’ emotions. How true it is that the aim of most advertising is to make buying an emotional response rather than a logical one!

Whereas advertising may have an undesirable effect on the public’s pocket, there is a much more serious downside to the power of lyrics and melody. Through lyrics repeated over and over again, songwriters teach adolescents to disregard others’ opinions and to “hang tough.” Moreover, the messages conveyed by controversial rap lyrics can permeate the emotional makeup of the listener and result in antisocial behavior.

So, to avoid contamination of the mind and the heart, we must be very selective in our choice of music.

What is crowd farm?

Carmencitta Magazine - What is Crowd Farm 1

MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has given two of its students the inspiration to come up with a new technology that, in the future, will be the solution to major energy problems.

Carmencitta Magazine - What is Crowd Farm 2

Tad Juscyzk and James Graham conceived, years ago, a project called “Crowd Farm”, and announced it in 2007, at the Holcim Forum awards ceremony. Moreover, Crowd Farm works by converting the movement of humans, in a crowded place, to electrical energy to be consumed later on.

The Concept

Carmencitta Magazine - What is Crowd Farm 3“The idea of a Crowd Farm would work like this: Boston’s South Station railway terminal would house a responsive sub-flooring system made up of blocks that depress slightly under the force of human steps would be installed beneath the station’s main lobby. The slippage of the blocks against one another as people walked would generate power through the principle of the dynamo, a device that converts the energy of motion into that of an electric current.

The electric current generated by the Crowd Farm could then be used for educational purposes, such as lighting up a sign about energy. Jusczyk stated that people should understand the direct relationship between their movement and the energy produced. A single human step can only power two 60W light bulbs for one flickering second, but a crowd in motion (Boston South station is an estimated 28,527 steps) and the result is enough energy to power a moving train for one second.” As described by them.

The Invention’s first test

Both students, decided to test the program for the first time, in the Venice Biennale, which is a train station in Torino city, Italy. They used the act of ‘sitting’ in order to generate power. In fact, the weight of the body on the train’s chair, cause a wheel to spin which in turn powers a dynamo that was able to turn on 4 LEDs.
