DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that a person’s heartbeat mimics the beat of the music he or she is listening to? Considered by many as an art form, music, or the mention thereof, can be found in the majority of media in this day and age, with plenty of platforms to download and stream music. Plenty of active music artists, performers, and writers almost make it impossible not to encounter this art form in our everyday lives. Oftentimes, music is only regarded as such as long as it is pleasing to the ears, although a few people have claimed otherwise, such as 20th-century composer John Cage, claiming that “There is no noise, only sound.”

Seen as a way of expression and an avenue to communicate how we feel, music can also be credited with bringing people together, to a certain degree. The fact that people with similar tastes in music often flock together is evidence of this. A study from 2009 have also found that it can be good for the health, claiming that it induces a continuous, dynamic - and to some extent predictable - change in the cardiovascular system. Understanding how a song’s rhythm, beat, and melody affects our body can possibly lead to therapies for some conditions that plague us today.
