Music of Vivaldi Boosts Mental Vitality

Music of Vivaldi Boosts Mental Vitality | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it

The Mozart Effect—the notion that listening to certain pieces of classical music can boost one’s brainpower—was initially embraced, widely popularized, and then largely debunked. But like an operatic character who keeps singing robustly on her deathbed, it refuses to go quietly.

 

Now, new research from the U.K. has found cognitive benefits from listening to one of the most popular pieces in the repertoire: Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.

Steampunk Art

Steampunk Art | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it

Steampunk is an art genre I have recently been fascinated by as the style of art reminds of two things - Final Fantasy IX and the Japanese animation Grenadier. Both heavy influenced by steam powered robots, mechanical infrastructural and outstanding landscapes. (Outstanding steampunk inspiration 1 http://dld.bz/FekT)

 

If you want to go deeper into Steampunk just follow my curation in the following days. Remember, you can always use the tag system to search on "Steampunk" to get all articles sorted out at once. Here is a new curated post with excellent inspirations.
