What scientists know about the musical tastes of people?

Today to find out how many exist in the world of musical genres is almost impossible, because the new styles appear every year and the old ones remain at the hearing for decades. That is why there is nothing strange in the fact that every person has their own taste in music. But from what depends on what kind of music will love this or that person? Why today many listen to trendy rap, and others continue to be fans of the old rock bands? According to Chinese scholars, students and musicians find each other because the music is playing, their brain starts to work the same way. Perhaps this explains the fact that in the concerts the audience and musicians as if becoming one and do not notice how time flows.

the reaction of the brain on music

That while listening to music listeners and musicians activated the same brain region, the scientists found in the experiment. It is necessary to clarify that scientific work has not been completed because the evidence of the results obtained, scientists need to undertake further work with a large number of participants. In the current experiment they asked a professional violinist to play a musical instrument 100-second clips of different songs. However, the musician were connected to a machine that monitored the activity of various regions of his brain while playing the violin. In addition, it was shot on video.

the Violin has just four strings and has gained popularity in the 17th century. Scene from the TV series "Sherlock"

The Shot video was shown to the volunteer group of 16 people, the brain activity which scientists too, watched. It turned out that during playback of music, listeners and musicians actively working two areas of the brain: the left temporal cortex and right inferior frontal cortex. Scientists also noticed that the brains of people engaged in the study of music and then gives man to understand, whether he likes music or not. So if you are looking for fresh music for a new playlist, do not be lazy and listen to at least half the length of the new products. Maybe the music will sound bad, but in the second part of the track could come the inspiration — the music you definitely like.

So, if you believe the words of Chinese scholars, the same brain of the musician and the listener can draw them closer. It is possible that artists of other music styles and their listeners begin , and not those that are involved while playing the violin. Learn about it at the moment it is impossible, but it is hoped that soon the researchers will conduct a new study. They need to invite certain artists musical groups and put them near the fans. If they start to work other areas of the brain and they will be the same, so the assumption of Chinese scientists has some truth.

the Musical tastes of people

Generally, the musical preferences of the person is influenced not only by activity in different areas of the brain, but many other factors. Primarily on musical preferences affected by the place of residence, tastes his or her parents, relatives and friends, as well as his character and way of life. For example, residents of African countries are perfectly familiar with this musical genre as soul and based on this knowledge, they can build musical preferences, which many people in Russia can be obscure. Likewise they may not understand our music preferences.

Types of musical tastes

Research on the subject of musical preferences of people considered to be very complicated, so such scientific work is carried out very rarely. The most interesting work of this kind is to a 2014 study, in which scientists have identified 5 types of musical tastes:

the
    the
  • Complex the taste, the holders of which listening is not particularly popular in our days classical music or modern versions of old songs;
  • the
  • undemanding taste, in which people listen to romantic songs, with the aim to relax and calm down under a soft melody;
  • the
  • Intense, the taste that is characterized by love for fast and aggressive music like punk rock and heavy metal;
  • the
  • Juicytaste, lovers who crave the soft and relaxing sounds that are full of such musical genres as jazz and soul;
  • the
  • Modern the taste, which is peculiar to most people — the holders of such musical taste prefer popular songs that will eventually be forgotten and replaced with other hits.

According to the owners of the complex and busy music taste is mostly open to new experiences and love the creativity. The owners are unpretentious musical taste, according to psychologists — people with a gentle nature who do not like innovations. People with a modern taste in music is open to communication individuals who often do not have their own opinions. But people with "juicy"music preferences at this moment are for scientists a big mystery, because to accurately describe them still failed. While it is possible to say that among fans of soul and jazz a lot of curious people, but to society they are treated differently — someone who likes to be in a big company, and someone prefers to spend time alone.

In General, music is a wonderful phenomenon that brings millions of people together. It is believed that composing music can only real talent, but more recently, this art learned even artificial intelligence. I advise you to read , as the computer generates music in the style of death metal in a live chat on YouTube.
