Music through the years has evolved alongside humans and has served as a big mark for the times.

The thought of a music channel on television might have sounded like a big joke but once someone gives it a try, there is no turning back. This channel had amazing, never seen before footage of the hit one had heard repeatedly on the radio come to life. In the footage the viewer will see the artists or band in front of them on their own screen singing and rocking out to what it seems to be a mini movie of their very own song. This
The power of music is well established as a strong power that can tap into our emotions. It is no surprise that the majority of people listen to music while sitting in there car, stuck in a jam, or listen to music while trying to sleep, or even listening to music while trying to do work.

Describe a specific example from one of the listening links in which dynamics illustrates the fear under which he lived: I choose Symphony number 1, which illustrates fear, when listening it captures you attention. At the very beginning the music played in piano. At 2 minutes and 8 seconds the music really demonstrated fear by having the music crescendo. They achieved this frightful feeling by using flutes, pianos, clarinets, then symbols. After the music continues it moves from symbols to a mixture of string instruments such as violins.
Time moves on and generations pass, and each of those generations have a different outlook on the world and what is crucial to them as human beings. While certain values can and should change, other values give stability to life and prosperity to all people. Each culture, country, or person may interpret these statements differently, molding them to their own unique life and challenges.

The bag isn’t a way of seeing the world, but a way of living. Not specific to our family, but necessary for all people.
What draws us to certain music? My grandparents, for example, have always considered the music I like “noise”. But, what makes it any more or less noise than what they listen to?

Music can benefit people in many different ways. I have experienced differing reactions to various types of music. In order to rate and create a workout playlist, I used the Brunel Music Rating Inventory to sufficiently capture the personal effect of each song. This playlist will give help me find out what physical and psychological affects music can have during my gym routine. For inspiration, I searched through my personal playlist and listened to various pieces consecutively. At first I believed modern electro would be a well worthy genre for this task.
