But sometimes, God has something better in store for you, something more than you even desire. Yes, he had something for me too. Now, it was the college gate in front of me and as I stepped in I felt an unpredictable pleasure and satisfaction in my soul. “It seems to be a wide campus”, I said to myself and could not resist smiling. I reached the academic block, did the registrations and then I realized I was living my dream.
 Intuitively, we view these two environments to exist in contrast with one another; the simple, confined spaces of architectural design seem incomparable to the vast, complex and limitless landscapes of nature. However, uniformity has never been a necessary condition in the existence of a harmonious relationship. Diversity can exist and is often favored. What is necessary is the absence of exploitation or harm to one another, the presence of a mutual agreement and lack of detrimental competition between parties. The important question is therefore, whether such a relationship exists between the built and natural environments.
Saving the obvious temporary distances, this affirmation would be suitable for most of the most celebrated architectures of nowadays. What is Architecture, after all? Is it possible to find an exact definition that allows us to trace a dividing line between what we can consider Architecture and what no? It is very probable that no, as no precise definition exist for the concept of Art, or even for the concept of Love. But it is possible, for example, to distinguish between what is Architecture and what is just construction.
Music has become an indispensable part of people s' lives. I’m sure that nobody can deny the great advantages and importance that music bring to us. It helps us express our emotion. Well, actually, everybody connected closely to music long long ago! Therefore, I believe that music is a part of our life.
All music brings some sort of feeling, some better than others. It allows freedom within people. It is a time where one can enter another dimension and stay as long as desired. Depending on how the sound is brought about, it can be extremely impacting on one's life, sometimes even life changing. Throughout music history there have been many influential song writers, producers, and musicians.
The intention behind performance, specifically the performance of live music in concert, is to consciously engage the listener in the process of artistic conception and creation. In doing so, a stronger appreciation and truer interpretation of the art’s meaning is discovered. Renowned for their talents, Radiohead is one of the most influential music groups of the past two decades. Since their rise to prominence in 1992, the group’s commitment to experimentally ambitious work has made them so ambiguous to the public that their work continues to remain highly susceptible to misconception. Such misconception arises when only listening to Radiohead on a device rather than observing them live in concert.
Musical Expression in a Silent World In many cultures, music can help define many aspects of life, and is an integral part of life. Some cultures have even begun to be defined by their music or the way it is expressed. The question is then posed, what of those cultures in which society assumes music has no place. Do these cultures and sub-cultures indeed lack the rich additives that come with self expression and identification through the art of music? The Deaf culture, even with such counter-examples as Beethoven, has long been assumed to have lack of music integrated into its rich interpersonal and social culture.
Acousticians have compiled a list of acoustic qualities that are considered to be the most important in concert hall acoustics: * Reverberation * Clarity * Intimacy * Warmth and Brilliance * Loudness * Spaciousness * Background Noise REVERBERATION A sound created in a big hall will persist by repeated reflection from the wall until it is reduced to a value where it is no longer audible. The repeated reflections that results in this persistence of sound are called reverberation. In a small conference room, however, the sound does not linger but decays very rapidly. Longer reverberation generally accentuates music, but can cause speech to be muddled. For concert halls, musicians will often refer to a reverberant space as being very "live".
The novel And Then There Were None was not gothic because of the non-gothic setting, realistic situation and an explainable villain who was not supernatural. This novel was not gothic because the setting does not contain any of the mandatory characteristics such as old castles, towers, churches or cemeteries, and it did not take place in darkness and uncertainty. An example of why the setting in the novel was not gothic was when it was described by the narrator. “If this had been an old house, with creaking wood & dark eerie feeling. But this house was the essence of modernity.
It reaches two to twelve percent of total music listening times (Sloboda, 2010; Herbert, 2011a). However, it remains to be a special, often highly gratifying moment sought for and returned to again and again by at least some music listeners. Indeed, absorbing musical experiences are, according to many, precisely what music is all about; what people are sometimes explicitly looking for when going to a concert, live event or listening when being alone, and to which time and again is returned to in order to re-experience it. These types of ‘heightened’ states are the ones which can offer insight into how the mind operates at its finest. It is therefore vital to understand such musical experiences, insofar as this would be possible, as it potentially explains why we are motivated to engage with music.
