Like any other art form, music is a way of communication. Reaching far beyond language and sometimes even to a level so deep
within our souls we get goose bumps. Our thoughts and memories are provoked, and sometimes we are even able to forget time
and space. Music has powers we don’t fully understand. Just like any other art form, the creation of music can be considered
as being a stream of sound directly from the artist’s soul.
This essay aims to look into the journey of Anna Frída Jónsdóttir through the department of Art and Science and explain her research for an upcoming masters project “Constructed Stimuli”.
It looks into what is behind the pieces created in this time and a personal view of influences and research.
The experimental performance “Constructed Stimuli” aims to visualise this stream from person to person, which happens through art. The goal of the experiment is to construct a particular stimuli, a sound, that interprets a particular emotion – an expressive time-form created in an art performance containing an abstracted image of emotional pathways and information streams in our brain. Picking out a specific element of the experience of music and constructing from it an image, an experience, and hopefully a key to trigger the emotion in the receiver with the touch of a sine wave.
