Patronage during the Renaissance Period
With nearly two decades of experience in chiropractic care, Dr. Manfred Alkhas is the founder and primary practitioner at Good Life Chiropractic. Outside of his San Jose, California, practice, Dr. Manfred Alkhas enjoys a variety of artistic pursuits, including art, creative writing, and music. He takes a particular interest in art from the Renaissance period and, more specifically, the works of Raphael.
Renaissance art comprises literature, music, sculpture, architecture, and music created in Europe from the 1300s through the 1500s. Artists during this period were frequently influenced by the revival of classical studies, an increased appreciation for nature, and a shift toward individualism. The flourishing creative activity during the Renaissance can be attributed in part to the introduction of a money-credit economy. The flow of currency allowed successful merchants to hire the services of noteworthy artists, providing ample opportunities for the creative minds of the Renaissance to practice their crafts.
In 1508, Raphael moved to Rome under the patronage of Pope Julius II. There, he painted a series of frescos, or murals, that have cemented his notoriety throughout history. Located within the Vatican in the Stanza della Segnatura (Room of the Signatura), Raphael’s first fresco includes pieces such as The Triumph of Religion and The School of Athens. Raphael’s additional work for Pope Julius II included frescos in the Stanza d’Eliodoro (Room of Heliodorus), Sala di Costantino (Hall of Constantine), and the Stanza dell’Incendio del Borgo (The Room of the Fire in the Borgo).
A Brief Description of Music Theory
Chiropractor Dr. Manfred Alkhas spends his spare time studying classical piano and improving his drum and guitar skills. A musician at heart, Dr. Manfred Alkhas is disciplined in learning music theory.
Much like grammar describes the structure of language, music theory describes the structure of music and how to transcribe it in such a way that musicians can determine how a song should be played or sung. Comprised of concepts and rules, music theory educates individuals about the fundamentals of music, which are vital for tackling new techniques and music genres. A person who truly comprehends the concepts of music theory has the capability to perform unfamiliar styles of music with confidence.
While music theory lays a solid foundation for musicians, it does not establish the absolute rule for how music is performed; musicians are artists, and as such, they apply the concepts and rules to develop their personal style. However, understanding the importance of keeping a steady beat based on a composition and how harmonies and melodies affect each other eases the process of learning music.
