Music keeps more and more people in more remote places.
The headphones are set according to that of a music player. Even in department stores, music is used to invite the buyer to extend the visit for a few minutes and to buy more. In public toilets it also you can listen to music.
The effect of music on people
To understand this issue, I must first make a small, but not too deep trip into the biology of humans as well as in physics. How the music comes to our ears. It comes to one wave, which resonates with the aid of a medium in the propagation direction (e.g., the noise). The man himself can perceive only the sound in the range of 16 to 10,000 Hz. Anything below or above these limits is not more noticeable to humans. About the ear, the sound reaches the regions of the brain that process the sounds, thus making us the only sounds audible.
There are two different types of listening:
• Unconscious processing (constantly, even during sleep)
• Conscious perception (only in the waking state)
Because the auditory pathway is directly connected to the limbic system (including processed emotions), connected music influenced the psyche and behaviour of the people.
Influence of music on the mind
Here, a distinction is usually between soothing and stimulating music. There are special features, but only the feeling ultimately decides what the effect of this music is. The soothing music relaxes and soothes the people, the inspiring music leads to a state of intoxication.Many factors contribute to influence the people such as the environment of the listener, the physical and mental condition of the listener, the attention that is given to the music.These and many other factors will be studied scientifically.
Thus, advertising and many other spectra has a basis on which they can build.The emotional feeling of the people is in some ways manipulated when they hear music. However, this practice is ethically questionable. When customers realize that they were deceived by such trick, so for them the question arises as to whether they continue to shop there. However, since this is very common, there are few alternatives.
Even the advertisements on television, radio or internet is always accompanied by music. Depending on the product, canvassed different genres are used. To analyze this would lead us too far. Finally, we would like to say that the criticism against such a practice might not be loud enough.
