Art and Music Journey in The Mind

Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for ( art and music ) play.

This article was originally posted on October 2019.

Playing for children often involves high energy of imagination and talking to one another.

Talk about high energy, how about the teenagers? What does your daily routine look like?
In schools around the world, do they still teach art and music courses?
It is expected that when you join a band you will learn music. However, there was a time in some elementary and middle schools you had a certain part of class room time to learn about the basic skills of playing a flute.
The same went for art.
It was not until high school you had to start picking specialized courses if you ever wanted to exercise your creative flow in that way during school hours.

The above is a conversational piece with a coffee shop vibe. As you know, conversations by their very nature are meant to be enjoyed. Conversations do not turn into arguments when there is the spirit of enjoying each other’s company.
Some of us have and will continue to enjoy our discussions over art, literature, and music.

Did you know this about art?

There are three classical branches of Art

I hope these interesting facts will show you what is innately known. That the mind can imaginatively see art in everything and make it materialize literally overtime.
Observe the skills required to proficiently create the following branches of art on a professional or occupational level.

Paintings

Shown in office buildings, restaurants, and homes. The owners of these establishments are dressing up their walls to be inviting and warm to set the tone of the environment. The environment is just as important to understanding what the prospective and perceptive clients are looking for; as well as their personality input. For example, a farmer will probably pass over placing huge buildings to decorate the walls in his home. However, an entrepreneur with dreams of owning a building that size just might say “Exactly what I was looking for!” All the while, you will peak the farmer’s interest with people smiling, lakes, and camping scenes. Do you have such skills with a paint brush?

Sculptures

Are 3 dimensional carvings made into stone, wood, and casting metal. It takes a precision of accuracy and patience IMHO like no other in the arts. It is not an easy thing to recover from the mistakes made and can be quite costly. To this day, Michelangelo (see Sistine Chapel) , has to be one of the most renowned Italian sculptures of all time. Though he was commissioned by Pope Julius II to paint the Sistine Chapel, he made clear in history that he is a sculptor more than a painter. Imagine that? All the same, how did this man create all these stone gems to perfection? He possessed the skills of precision accuracy and patience. Do you have such skills?

Architecture

As referenced with the Sistine Chapel, the paintings on the ceiling walls, people travel from all over the world to see them; the architectural structure is no less aesthetically studied in history books from the renaissance period. Do you understand the art and engineering behind designing such buildings?

Then we have the animating performing arts! Often the ones who are not as skilled with stylus tools can find their place in music and theater. This is to make you aware everyone can find their place in exercising creativity. Have you experienced the joy of creating music or dance?

Speaking of Music

In part two of this article we will explore a couple of instruments and thoughts on music. It has been said more than once by this writer, music is one of life’s pleasures. Really, there are many you will tell you it makes life worth living through the good and tough times! Do you agree? I’m confident that the students visiting this website are in agreement with that last sentence.

So by all means please share this article on your social media accounts and with close friends.
I’m pleased you are enjoying the Product of Culture aka pocbooks.com website

A Poem with the flavor of art

But first, you will also want to check out the product of culture artist pick website:

Seeing beauty at times takes a trained eye.
It is more than just looking up at the sky.
Some can take the easy way out by repeating what everyone has said before.
But in order to be original the ability to see beauty has to go beyond the surface of the door.
The face is just a shield.
What’s inside happens to be the true yield.
It often takes insight and training to see beyond such borders to not go along with the established order.
You don’t have to wait until you are older.
Young in age too can find beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Marie Digby – Wildfire (Michael Badal Remix)
Available on the WILDFIRE EP: http://www.2lin.cc/MDWFEP

*****

The Wildfire single is masterfully delicate in the way it produced what heart(s) go through in heightening romanticized states.

The “Wildfire” effect needs little explanation or intellectual reasons for it being so impassioned; for it involves the very life force of the two in-love souls.

Marie Digby in Reality

Marie’s music touches you for different reasons on different levels of experience.

*Singers at times use a form of poetic extravagance to produce the feels in the listener’s heart. When a person sings or plays a song for you like “Your love lifts me higher than the highest mountain,” you feel confident that something wonderful is happening in the relationship. And that is just one case in point factual occurrence.

*This next example of analysis pertains to taking the mind’s rooted thoughts and writing them through an allegorical structure. The story, whether fiction or nonfiction, past or present, mundane to the spiritual are meditated on and produced.  This ignites the mind’s universe of infinite possibilities to think and perceive when needed. This way you can grasp something deeper from the songwriter. Marie’s songwriting aptitude in this area, IQ if you will, would appeal (IMHO) to William Shakespeare himself.

William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England’s national poet, and the “Bard of Avon.” – Wikipedia

You may also reference Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, and Shakespeare’s literary works.

Song Track: My Ghost by Marie Digby

Now that we have mentioned how poetry and storytelling experience is used to attract the listener’s heart, which also softens to feel the feels, we move into an important level of sophistication. We’ve talked about this technique before.

Music Theory & Sophistication

There are epiphany moments where you come to conclusions on a subject, and there is not a distinct word for it. Therefore you express the results of what you observed. Technology is famous for creating new terminology and three letter acronyms! When you learn the purpose and how a program functions the name(acronym) often then makes sense to people familiar with the technology.

Song track: Kings and Queens

Today; technology, human technique, and the musician’s abilities with voice and instruments all meld together in performance.

The performances can be seen live; yet, often on digital video media. These types of performances at times show what the Product of Culture website rating system calls sophistication.

With what has already been touched on, there are additional things seen by the audience from the artists who display this sophistication.

Sophistication encompasses intuitive songwriting ability, optimal body language, and aesthetics in music videos. In this digital age, it is important for the artist to convey to the eyes what the other aforementioned two levels of experience are relating to the listener’s ears.

This way, in the way I and many others in a variety of cultures enjoy music, with all three levels of experiences in full effect, the intuned listener receives from the singer his or her pure thoughts. Her life’s truth.

Three Levels of Experiences

Poetry & Storytelling (Writing)

Music composition (Voice/Instrument)

Sophistication (Visual)

Listening to Marie’s Loves Imagination Music

There are people who have expressed how they enjoy listening to the Wildfire EP on repeat while driving. This is a common environment of choice for most people to enjoy music.

I have another option of enjoyment for you.

Go for a walk, hike, or run while listening to the Wildfire EP.  Are you a person who daily traverses one mile or more for exercise? Then as you walk with Marie’s melodious thoughts, the time and traversed land covered speeds up. You may feel at some points that you are moving at such a comfortable pace that your one-mile walk had an extra mile amended to it.

Song track: Jet Streams

What are you thinking about on the hike?

Really, the question may be what are you and Marie thinking about on the hike? The conversation of what is possible between people of like minds and hearts. The conversation of sadness when the value of one another is lost. And then there is LIFE in all its beauty!

Whenever you hear mentioned on this website that a singer/songwriter is ‘intuitive,’ just know this word is used with conscious thoughts.

Intuitive: perceiving directly by intuition without rational thought, as a person or the mind.

Wildfire EP Of Loves Imagination – Marie Digby is an intuitive songwriter.
