Music is probably one of the few things that can bring people from all walks of life together through its ability to connect with the listener, evoke emotions, and create or even revisit everlasting memories.
But have you ever wondered what we use music for as humanity? Read on and you'll find that music plays a much bigger role than you ever imagined and how endless and creative its uses can be.
The most popular use is, of course, for personal enjoyment and entertainment. This started centuries, if not millennia ago, through basic singing, the beat of drums bought by tribes in Africa or from the earliest wind or string instruments.
Today we have concerts and orchestras that produce different types of audio for our personal pleasure. The fact is that all living things have embedded music, so even birds can sing.
This enjoyment of music has also led to great fundraising opportunities such as providing funds to stringent disaster areas like Haiti by doing a charity single with the proceeds given to charity. What better way to get someone to part with your money than by giving them something they enjoy?
The song We Are the World recently helped raise $ 63 million for help and aid! With all the emotion that music provokes, we use it for various situations that need that musical flow in the air to help accompany the mood of the situation.
At parties and clubs, a vibrant song with the typical four-on-the-floor drum beat and a spicy tempo immerses you in the excitement and natural feeling of a good time ahead. But again, when you hear that "Amazing Grace" is sweetly sung or played softly on a solo instrument, you are probably at a funeral that will demand that the music be filled with emotion and help the mind to deal with emotional difficulties. they face. .
People of all ages have a need to express themselves through various methods, such as choosing activities, clothing, and network of friends ... but the easiest way to show who you are is through music. what do you hear.
Thanks to the iPod and a million other music playback devices, anyone can create a playlist that suits their needs. You can make a playlist for a good day, a bad day, a Friday, or whatever inspires you.
Even though those playlists seem to differ significantly, they will say a lot about you. Suppose boy 1's "bad day" playlist will have some hard rock n roll and for boy 2 it will have a chill and soothing new age selection.
From that, you could assume that when boy 1 has a bad day, he will show it and probably act, while boy 2 will probably take a deep breath and let his problems fade away. Have you ever gotten into an incredibly fast supercar and found out that the driver listens to Beethoven?
He may be trying to tell you that although he seems to have an adrenaline-fueled risky personality, deep down he enjoys a bit of peace and quiet. Since 1928, television and movies have taken us by storm.
But come to think of it, some of the most epic moments I've seen wouldn't have been on the grand scale they had been without the all-important soundtrack. Can you imagine watching Final Destination without the music creating the suspense of grizzly bear accidents?
Or how about the Titanic without the musicians scene as they played Nearer my God to you as the ship began to sink? In all these moments, the music immerses you in the intensity of the scene, giving you a better understanding of the events that are unfolding.
Companies realized years ago how our brains could easily remember a tune and not a slogan, hence the birth of jingles. These short, super catchy songs helped make or break a product ad campaign and provided them with a strong brand. Another unlikely use of music is its ability to help with study!
Yeah , blasting your music while hitting the books can actually help BUT it's mostly classical music that will work best, especially Mozart! I can't explain why it's a long read, but you can read more about this phenomenon here.
But basically it all comes down to the rhythm that the music brings. It's this same beat that helps soothe crying babies when you put on their favorite lullaby, believe it or not!
There are also therapeutic uses for music that are used today to help relieve stress and anxiety and help provide better physical and spiritual well-being. Music is great for setting your mood. An unorthodox use of music, or rather of sound in this case, is its use as a weapon!
Recordings have been used before in battlefield wars to confuse the enemy! Even during questioning, a suspect can be tortured using sounds. In crowd control, certain frequencies can be emitted to cause great discomfort and disperse the crowd.
