(13.09.2013) – Holi-Partys – der neue Farbenrausch aus Indien – haben Deutschland längst im Griff. Tausende Feierfreudige bewerfen sich mit Farbpulver – ein Riesenspaß! „Doch wie gefährlich ist der Farbrausch eigentlich?“, fragte ein Leser an. DocCheck hat für Sie recherchiert und getestet.

Group Playing Holi in Vashi, Navi Mumbai, India (Source: Wikipedia.org)

Holi-Partys sind angesagt, friedlich und richtig bunt. Zu meist festgelegten Zeitpunkten werfen alle Partygäste gleichzeitig bunt gefärbten Puder – Gulal – in die Luft oder bemalen sich damit. Das farbenfrohe Fest ist eigentlich in Indien beheimatet. Dort zählt „Holi“, das Fest der Farben, zu den wichtigsten Feierlichkeiten des Landes. Mit der bunten Farbenpracht begrüßen die Inder einerseits den Frühling, aber auch den Sieg des Guten über das Böse nach dem hinduistischen Glauben. Beim Holi-Fest sind alle Menschen gleich – egal ob jung oder alt, arm oder reich, denn die bunten Farben lassen die Unterschiede zwischen Kasten, Religion oder Herkunft verschwimmen.

Weiter im Artikel…

  • Nach kurzer Zeit weit verbreitet…
  • Staubexplosionen und Atemwegsbeschwerden?
  • Wie gefährlich sind Holi-Farben wirklich?
  • Keine Explosionsgefahr…
  • Nur für Allergiker und Asthmatiker problematisch…
  • Besser keine originalen indischen Farben…
  • Dauerhafte Haarcoloration…
  • Und was sagt der DocCheck Holi-Party-Tester ?

Mit der 1. Wiener Werkstatt Musiktherapie startet das WIM eine neue Veranstaltungsreihe. Wir möchten damit eine Möglichkeit bereitstellen, die reichhaltige, klientenübergreifende klinische Erfahrung mit Denkanstößen angrenzender wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen zu verbinden und darüberhinaus eine wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung anzuregen.

Logo-Wiener-Werkstatt-Musiktherapie-1Angesprochen sind alle MusiktherapeutInnen, die Lust und Interesse haben, auch ungewohnte gedankliche Wege zu gehen, um neue Perspektiven zu suchen – unabhängig von der Dauer ihrer Berufsausübung und eventueller Zusatzausbildungen sowie ihres musiktherapeutischen Tätigkeitsfeldes. Dementsprechend nähern wir uns dem diesjährigen Tagungsthema “Katharsis” über Impulse aus Psychotherapie, Sozialanthropologie und Abfallwirtschaft.
Einem „Werkstatt“-Charakter entsprechend werden im Anschluss an die Vorträge musiktherapeutisch relevante Themen und Fragestellungen, die sich aus den Vorträgen ableiten lassen, in semistrukturierter Arbeitsweise exploriert, um das aktuelle Wissen zu diesem Thema erweitern und vertiefen zu können; dabei sollen unkonventionelle Denkweisen mit systematischem Vorgehen verknüpft werden. Die Ergebnisse des Tages wollen wir einer weiteren wissenschaftlichen Vertiefung zugänglich machen, daher planen wir, die Gruppenarbeit als “Fokusgruppe” (qualitative Forschungsmethodik) zu dokumentieren.

Neben den eingeplanten Kaffeepausen wird bei einem arabischen Mittagsbuffet (auch für Vegetarier reiche Auswahl) in den Seminarräumlichkeiten Zeit für persönlichen Austausch sein.

Weiters gibt es die Möglichkeit, ab 20.00 am traditionellen Barfuß-Tanzen im Studio Barada teilzunehmen (Unkostenbeitrag € 10,-).

Fragen werden gerne per eMail (wim.kontakt@gmail.com) entgegengenommen und beantwortet.

Das Angebot richtet sich an berufsberechtigte MusiktherapeutInnen sowie Musiktherapie-Studierende in der Abschlussphase (Diplomandenstadium).

Healthy Musicianship; Prevention, Cures and Challenges in Musician’s Medicine

Eckart Altenmüller (Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien, Hannover)

Performing music at a professional level is one of the most complex of human accomplishments. Societal pressures and the overall increasing level of expertise and performance technique require students to work hard and to develop skills which are not only related to playing, but also to emotional communication and self-management. It therefore is essential to teach future instrumental teachers and performing musicians on one side to recognize and prevent performance related injuries, on the other side to have sufficient drive and vitality to express emotions and joyfulness in making music.

In the lecture, I will present the program we have developed in Hannover. It aims at preventing injuries and provides skills which are necessary to improve self-management, emotional communication and knowledge about the meaning of music in our society.

page 19 from Lecture “Healthy musianship: prevention, cures and challenges in musician’s medicine” (Prof. Dr. Eckart Altenmüller. Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien, Hannover) – Download fully PDF from bottom.

The program includes information about the pathophysiology of injuries caused by instrumental playing and offers a prevention program including body-relaxation techniques, performance training and management of anxieties. Biological foundations of music making and music perception are taught. The main foci here are sensorimotor aspects of music playing, motor learning, musculoskeletal injuries, performance anxiety, hearing, protection of hearing, and central nervous auditory processing.

We offer small group seminars for instrumentalists in a “hands-on” format. The main aspects are movement sciences, motor learning, and efficiency in practicing.

With these courses we work on four major lines:

* Teaching the basics of music physiology and musicians’ medicine.
* Research into the physiological and neurobiological principles of professional music performance and music perception
* Research into the causes of occupational injuries in musicians.
* Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of such injuries.

Selected case studies and practical propositions are presented in the end of my lecture.

Please find below the other presentations & keynote.

thematic session 1: talent
Musical Talent: Conceptualisation, Identification And Development
Susan Hallam (University of London)

This presentation begins with a consideration of how thinking about musical talent has changed over time. Evidence from research exploring recent conceptualisations of musical talent will be presented. The role of musical practice and engagement in musical activities will be discussed in relation to the development of musical expertise and will be linked to neuropsychological studies of the brain. Finally, the presentation will consider the crucial role of motivation in the nurturing and development of talent and the implications of this for its identification.

thematic session 2: excellence
Cognitive reserve, music, and sports
Erik Scherder (VU University, Amsterdam)

There is some interesting literature supporting the view that growing up in an enrichment environment contributes to a cognitive reserve. The higher the cognitive reserve, the more a person is able to withstand the consequences of aging and/or age-related neurodegenerative diseases. In an enriched environment, a person is constantly challenged, preferably both cognitively and physically, processing a variety of stimuli. Enriched environment at a young age, is particularly important for those brain areas that are still developing, e.g. the prefrontal cortex.

thematic session 3: practicing

Succesfull (self-)study: the role of cognitive and socio-emotional development
Mariëtte Huizinga (VU University, Amsterdam)

Why is it that some adolescents attend school virtually effortless, while others experience delay or even drop-out? Why is it that the one adolescent is perfectly able to balance his/her homework and social life, while others are not? Which factors are related to an adolescent’s ability to resist the attraction of the internet and social media?

thematic session4 : (over)load
Monitoring Overload in Athletes And Dancers
Jacques van Rossum (VU University, Amsterdam)

In dance, one has traditionally lived in a world coloured by pain (‘no pain, no gain’), where the seemingly unavoidable injuries are perceived by dancers to be caused by fatigue, overwork and ‘repetitive movements’. In recent years, however, scientific evidence suggests that smart practice is to be preferred over the traditionally hard and long hours of practice. This presentation describes (some of) the speaker’s experiences regarding the monitoring and prevention of overload in athletes and dancers.

keynote lecture
Tip of the Iceberg
Henkjan Honing (University of Amsterdam)

In this presentation I will argue that we all share a predisposition for music. Examples range from the ability of newborns to perceive the beat, infants impressive sensitivity to complex rhythms, to the unexpected musical expertise of ordinary listeners. The evidence will show that music is second nature to most human beings, both biologically and socially. However, if musical talent is indeed so wide spread as it seems, one could wonder whether we are the only species that are musical. Can birdsong, the song structure of humpback whales, a Thai elephant orchestra, or a gibbon duet be considered products of musical animals as well? It will lead to a discussion of whether successful musicians are (merely or consequently) the tip of the iceberg.

Amsterdam Conference: Managing your Talents – Interdisciplinary Research on the Performing Arts (29-30 Aug 2013)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on August 28, 2013

August 29 and 30 2013, the Conservatorium van Amsterdam will host the international conference Managing your Talents – Interdisciplinary Research on the Performing Arts.

managing-your-talents_02

This conference makes for a unique gathering of people whose expertise will be called upon to achieve a new standard of educational excellence in the performing arts. It is a must-go for those who are involved with music, dance or theatre, and who seek to share their interest with researchers from a broad range of disciplines, such as performing arts pedagogy, medicine, neuropsychology, brain and cognition sciences, and human movement sciences.

Conservatorium-Amsterdam-Logo-1The conference will mark a new partnership between De Theaterschool, Conservatorium van Amsterdam, the University of Amsterdam, and VU University. These four institutions aim to share their knowledge in the field of the artistic disciplines and the pedagogical, biomedical and cognitive sciences with a view to strengthen the education and guidance of performing artists. The development of a common research agenda is of vital importance to a sector in which extraordinary tasks have to be accomplished under the public gaze. Conservatories and dance academies, but also orchestras and theatre companies will benefit from this research.

The conference will serve as a first joint exploration. The programme is structured around four themes:

* Talent
* Excellence
* Practicing
* (Over)load

The main language during the conference will be English.

talent

In this session we will raise the question what talent is, when and how to spot it, and how to foster and develop it. We will collect relevant insights from diverse areas of inquiry and confront these with a number of case studies. The historical dimension will not be forgotten. In the arts, talent has long been indefinable. Paradoxically, this was seen as one of its defining characteristics. On the other hand, performing artists have to meet concrete criteria when they want to join an orchestra, ensemble or company; and the arts are buttressed by formal education. How has the need to compare and select artists for job positions and to formulate educational goals for art schools affected the notion of talent?

excellence

For performing complex tasks under great pressure, so as to offer critical audiences a unique experience, stage artists have no equals – except athletes. Knowledge of the ways in which to prepare the human body and mind for such great achievements may be beneficial to other sectors of society. However, in the arts this knowledge is only implicit, or just not available in an organized form. Researchers in the sports have been more successful in coming to grips with it; but then sporting achievements are often quantifiable. What does excellence mean in the performing arts? In this session we will speak about the relevance of sports research for the performing arts; but we will also consider what the latter may contribute to the emerging science of ‘peak performance’.

practicing

Practice is the complement of talent. One yields nothing without the other. But what do we practice, and how? Practicing methods often bear the stamp of tradition and experience – they are prescribed on the authority of the already successful. However, the relation between method and success is fuzzy. What do we know about the range and effects of particular forms of practicing behavior? In this session we will look for substantial information that may shed a light on training practices in different sectors of the performing arts.

(over)load

What performing artists do for a living makes great demands on their mental and physical condition. The art of performing is at the same time the art of staying healthy. There are many methods of prevention and therapies for recovery – so many, in fact, that it can be difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff. Although artists may find help and encouragement in these methods and therapies, their scientific underpinnings are not always transparent. This session revolves around two main questions: do performing art schools have sufficient in-house expertise to provide a coherent and effective resilience programme? And can the health sciences offer adequate answers to questions emerging from artistic practice?
