I was talking to my therapist today about color and music. She was saying how classical music has been proven to help calm the temperal lobes in the brain. I then came up with a plan that I’m working on, although I’m a bit manic, I think it is a good idea and very doable. Let me know if you think otherwise or even have any suggestion, advice, or would even like to try it out. Ok, here it is.
What I’m working on creating is something like ‘environmental medicine’. It has been known for a long time that music, or sounds in general, and color can affect moods, concentration, etc… (Smell also plays a role, I may look into that with aroma therapy later.) With that known, the question come down to wich ones for what mood and so forth. That I looked up on the internet and cross matched with several sites to make sure they were at least somewhat valid. Then comes up the question of implementation for the right perception and type of perception. That is what I’m working on. Right now I’m researching into what kind’s of music, sounds, and especially the key of music or note, affects what part of the brain. From there I’m going to start off with just simple desktop themes and background based on what you are trying to achieve and/or fix.
For example, say you have to write a program, or even do a graphic, and want to concentrate good. You could select the theme in which will help you to mentally focus better. My therapist was telling me about some overlays she saw that had colored patterns that you could overlay what your reading on your desk. The color patterns then affected how you took in what you was reading.
Let me know what you think. Because even for people without any type of mental issues, I think this could be valuable. I think most people would like to learn a little better, or concentrate a little better, or perhaps even just know what color clothes to pick out for what occasion better
