We all love to listen to music. Tastes and preferences, however, are different for everyone: from “Vladimirsky Central” to Beethoven. Have you ever asked yourself the question “why do I like listening to music”? The range of answers is wide, ranging from primitive “like – do not like” to “wakes up the soul”, “makes you think”. In fact, everything is much deeper.
On the one hand, we will not exclude the so-called “human factor”. After all, we are all different and the interest in music is also very individual. However, such entertaining science as physics allows us to look at this question in a completely different perspective. The human brain does not really like high-frequency sounds. This can explain the popularity of pop music. Its sounds are low-frequency (about 40-66 hertz). Hence the predilection of people for “club” music. Low frequencies, which are used in this music, do not strain, and even to some extent zombie people. Some may object to me and say that club music burdens them and depresses them. Please do not confuse the “human factor”, which was mentioned above and the scientific facts.
Have you ever wondered why so few people like classical music? Now you know. The high-frequency sounds used in baroque music have a longer wavelength than our brain is capable of capturing. Therefore, some people experience discomfort during long listening to “classics”. And meanwhile it has long been known that it positively affects the human body. Yes, classical music has a healing effect. In France, they came to the conclusion that if you play Mozar’s music with cows, they give more milk. In the USA, during the language lessons for immigrants, the music of Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi was lost. The learning of language was noticeably accelerated. In Japan, in one of the bakeries, bread is baked to the sounds of Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony. Music sounds continuously, bread has an exceptional taste. Well, it’s really fun – in Japan, someone guessed sake (rice vodka) to drive to the music of Mozart. The quality of sake has grown significantly. It would be nice to introduce such practice in our distilleries. There is even such a term – “The Mozart Effect” (it is his music that has a positive effect on brain performance). Baroque music leads to the fact that the brain starts to generate so-called theta waves in addition to synchronizing the hemispheres, which leads to better memory, increased concentration, attention is much longer kept on the subject of study.
Another musical direction I would like to emphasize separately. This is jazz. In Soviet times, he was hated. Even with the Beatles could be reconciled, but not with jazz. Even the rockers did not say “from saxophone to knife – one step” (Soviet ideologist AA Zhdanov) and “today he listens to jazz, and tomorrow he will sell his homeland.” Well, Gorky with his “jazz – thick music”. And why so hated? Because people who have a huge degree of inner freedom play and listen to jazz. And the Soviet Union it was useless … Jazz – music of creative, extraordinary personalities, who can think outside the box, combine seemingly at first sight incongruous things.
Finally I will say that many people want to have a good memory, overcome the banal laziness, increase attention and concentration. So one of the recipes is music. Listen to classics, jazz. Constantly. It is not necessary to sit down specially in an armchair and imagine bastard landscapes, as teachers sometimes advise in schools, giving rise to a strong aversion to the classics, but simply make classics and jazz the sound background of your being.
The result will come! In a month, two, three, but surely will come!
