What is the most powerful art form and why?
Music has been said to be the most powerful art form. Here’s why
According to some the most moving and powerful form of art is music. Music has been said to be able to make one cry, high, dance around as if in ecstasy, and sing one’s lungs out as if they are on the stage reciting the song for an audience. According to Richard Ashcroft, “music is something that unifies us, it’s not something that polarizes us.”
The question does remain though, why does music move us? Why is it considered one of the most powerful art forms?
Well, the answer to this question is a short and complex, yet surprisingly simple one.
According to psychologicalscience.org,
“ Researchers have shown that music stimulates the cerebellum, a region of the brain crucial to motor control. Levitin says connections between the cerebellum and the limbic system (which is associated with emotion), “may explain why movement, emotion, and music are tied together.”
