unnatural love for music




# Fiction | unnatural love for music March 10, 2013

Love of music and the ability to find harmony in a bizarre combination of sounds entirely acquired and are not among the qualities that man is endowed by nature. This is the conclusion reached by scientists from the University of Melbourne. No innate desire for beauty not all people learn and delightful to look him exactly what he was taught to be considered beautiful.

Recently, more and more moving away from the nature of humanity is increasingly trying to find an explanation for everything in some natural tendencies. You hear, “It is natural! It’s natural! It’s natural! “But, alas, the man – a special species, if not all, very much due to its development of the brain and flexible student mind. Therefore, much of what appears to be a man “given by nature”, in fact, born in the human society. The music that is beautiful and relevant in your environment and you will have to appear harmonious.

Listen to what we said Associate Professor Neil McLachlan (Neil McLachlan) from the Melbourne School of Psychology:

Our research shows that the perception of musical harmony person learns and it will depend on the fact that the brain of [this] man accustomed to perceive [as harmonious music].

Thus, when the music of some exotic culture (or jazz) you may find that this is not music, but a cat screaming. It is only because you are not used to listen to this music.

In a study on a voluntary basis participated 66 people with varying degrees of musical training. They determined is whether to one or another combination of the familiar and pleasant music. Recall that any music is just some combination of music and nothing more. Even the one that you consider a masterpiece.

Associate Professor Maklahan continues to share with the public their unexpected observations:

We found that a person must first be used to separate the notes, so you normally take up of these tunes. If a person does not find [friends] notes, the sound will seem to him ugly and dissonant. This study refutes the theory prevailed for centuries that the appeal of the music by the physical structure of the ear.

Study co-author, Associate Professor Sarah Wilson (Sarah Wilson) adds statements of his colleagues, noting that trained musicians are more sensitive to dissonance than non-professionals:

When musicians are not able to detect the [separate] note, they find unpleasant sounds, and people who do not make music, are less sensitive. This underlines the important role of brain training is to love the combination of sounds that are found in jazz or rock.

Depending on what was taught musician, he may feel a great pleasure from the sound of a gong, for example. For others, the same exotic sound will seem unpleasant and devoid of every kind of inner peace. Whom they had been taught, the kind of music and love.

It turns out that even the perception of a single sound depends on how accustomed people to love him or not. Or rather not quite the case: a man accustomed to this noise.

But scientists never take anything for granted and tend to check their guesses. Therefore nineteen study participants with a good musical training, but not a musician by profession, asked to look at the individual notes of a random sample of chords.

And what is the result? Not only that, after a dozen short sessions ability to hear individual notes has increased substantially. In addition, the study noted that the chords to their ears began to sound pleasant. The degree of “pleasantness” depended on the arrangement. It turns out that the tendency to a particular musical direction is akin to the habit of coffee ?

The question of why certain combinations of musical notes or sounds nice, however, disgusting, was for many years because of violent disputes. And now, it seems, found an answer that sounded Associate McLachlan:

We have proved that the beauty of music in the brain listener.

In fact, the mind is completely natural human quality. From this point of view and learn to love music and just learn to love it is natural to Homo sapiens, as in full accordance with its natural qualities.
