This ad use the the example/ illustration and narration   by showing how their product can impact a person's life and telling the consumer the story that art school doesn't show its students how use materials to help them create their arts.. This ad use pathos to to futhure carry its meaning to the consumers.

Spotify. Pandora. iTunes. YouTube. We are constantly bombarded with a seemingly limitless amount of new music in our daily lives. But why do we keep coming back to that one song or album we couldn’t get enough of in college?

Interesting one this - the main takeaway is pretty straightforward - that people like to think they want something different but ultimately are happier with what they know.  This is almost like the "Aspirational" Netflix queue  - you know - when you're picking titles you throw in the odd obscure documentary or social issue movie - but when it comes time to watch them - you'd rather pass and settle on something less taxing and - yes - more familiar.

 

It's the end point that I find intriguing in that they postulate that people will choose familiar music when they're busy working or doing cognitively demanding tasks - which makes perfect sense to me.  It's the whole theory behind music2work2 in that people use music to create an optimal aural environment to do stuff - and the less challenging or more familiar the music - the less resource the brain has to devote to processing it - so - you et the benefit of the aural environment with plenty of brain power left to dedicate towards the task at hand.

Habing worked in some sonically challenged workspaces, including financial services, makes this article very interesting to me.  Edith workspaces evolving, taking into consideration the STI just makes sense.

It's an exciting time to be working in music, memory and neuroscience - not that a study of 9 people is going to stand up in court but like so many other studies in this area - we're beginning to get an idea what may be going on.  Lots of research out in the last few years about the efficacy of sleep and that's being reflected in lots of the performance blogs.
