MUSIC & ART

Not many people know this but music has a striking interaction with mathematics. Studies have proven that babies who listen to classical music in the womb understand math concepts better, as oppose to babies who don't in fact listen to music. The way music and math are related, would probably be the scores of classical music, especially if you know how to read music.
Scientists theorize that music is based upon mathematical Intelligence according to the journal of aesthetic education. "Because understanding to read music is understanding how to read ratios I.E. 3/4 vs. 4/4." Also music and math have numbers involved in both areas. Such as a quarter note half-note full note etc. Plus bending and sliding to certain areas on the fret bar (the neck).
Rhythm and pitch are some of the key elements to music, which it makes math a very close relative.
San Jose was creating a new art exhibit called "Art Shift". It is currently at the San Jose ICA. This exhibit includes peculiar sculptures paintings, drawings, and some things the eye cant make out. The show takes local artists and gives them a chance to express themselves, through their art. "Give your art and heart to the community" it is described as.
In other words three established artists come to one place to talk to students about generation, creation, and possible challenges to help build a community with art. These artists believe that the government should start fostering public art. They would be interested in what role it would play in the community, if any.
Art on the edge an even more eccentric exhibit. Peculiar things such as squirrels wanting you to do karaoke, south African artists want to turn skateboards into musical instruments. A man size squirrel passes out pop-sickle sticks by an ice cream truck that turns into a full blown karaoke system. Art on the edge or zero one is a very peculiar event.
