Task: to study the effect of music on living organisms.
“Music and plants… The connection between these words seems incredible at first. One of the pioneers of studying the effect of music on plants is the Indian scientist Singh. His students conducted an experiment on onion bulbs. Studies have clearly shown that plants responded positively to the music of wind and water noises, while plants responded to heavy rock by reducing the size of leaves and roots, and reducing their weight.

The healing effect of music on living organisms was noticed at the dawn of civilization. Pythagoras was the first to evaluate the therapeutic effect of sounds. By the way, he also proposed the concept of “musical medicine”. The healing effect of music on the human body was noticed at the dawn of civilization. The use of musical art for therapeutic purposes is described in ancient papyri and the Bible. Music affects the human body comprehensively. While listening to music, the brain reacts to it by activating several areas. The processing of musical information is influenced by a person’s visual, tactile, and emotional experience.

Have you noticed yourself? You can’t remember the phone number or the intercom code, but as soon as your hand touches the digital scoreboard, your fingers type in the desired code. Tactile memory? Yes, and it can also be visual, olfactory, auditory, etc. We remember the bored tune by ear, sing it. All it takes is for the chorus in a hit song to be sung twice, so that the listener will remember it forever.

Sound is one of the types of information that a person receives from the surrounding world in addition to information, in addition to other senses (vision, touch, smell). Since ancient times, people have been surrounded by sounds, and most of them were unconsciously associated with certain feelings and ideas. Some-with fear (roar, screams, animal howls) others, on the contrary, have to calm and relax (the sound of sea waves, the murmur of a stream, calm breathing, the rustle of trees, the singing of birds). Some sounds, known and ubiquitous, become neutral and commonplace, while new and unknown ones, on the contrary, cause alarm and confusion. Animals can easily distinguish threatening sounds from all others. Continue reading
For sure, this name will cause stable associations with rap or heavy metall among the older generation. “Alas” for them and “cheers” for fans of these styles: it is proved that the healing power of music is not related to its aesthetic value. It happens that a wonderful work from the point of view of a musicologist does not have any healing effect on a person. Moreover, there is music that can harm your health. Works that violate the laws of musical harmony, with uneven, intermittent rhythm, frequent dissonances negatively affect the cardiovascular system and breathing. There are cases when listening to such music led to cardiac arrest. Of course, complaints about rock music are largely justified. Continue reading
