Listening to music is good for the heart - Telegraph

Listening to music is good for the heart - Telegraph | Music in ballet teaching | Scoop.it
Listening to music has long been seen as a remedy for heartbreak.

Jonathan Still's insight:

Can't help feeling there may be a large dose of Hawthorne effect here. If somebody told me to stop everything and do *anything* for half an hour a day, that would probably do me some good. Praying, cooking, writing letters, sitting down in a chair. Also think that 'listening' needs some careful disentangling and discussion.

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?

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, July 24, 2013 1:33 PM

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.

More anecdotal evidence from the Alzheimer world where music is driving therapy and helping patients to feel better.  I like this story because having started with music and then moving to dance they are now finding that the patients want to express themselves through other creative aspects such as art classes.

 

It seems to me that it's the underlying idea of creativity - whether that's in creating the melody with their voice or the moves of the dance or even the lines on the page - it is the act of creating that is mitigating the effects of Alzheimer's - I wonder....

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, August 21, 2013 1:34 PM

I found this fascinating -certainly from the perspective of manual labor - but I'd love to see more insight and research into how music is used in today's information society - there are far more people inside looking at screens than there are inside handling machines.  As the means of distributing and receiving music become more ubiquitous, I think we're only just scratching the surface of what music can be to the workplace.

Jonathan Still's insight:

If they worked out what dance teachers have to pay to dance to music, the figure would have been much more shocking. The elephant in the room in this story is music licensing.

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, September 16, 2013 3:09 PM

I love that this question was inspired by the million dollars a year the Police inUKspend on music licensing!  Is it worth it?  Hell yes!  The article is a little light but at least the journalist did a bit of research and ending up chatting to our old friend Anneli Haake who has much experience in this area!

I find music helps when I'm researching, collating data or writing something not too demanding but it has to be instrumental - a singing voice is too distracting for me.
