Music is sometimes the key aspect to performance and satisfaction for people when working out (Jabr 2013). With the uprising of music being portable and readily available, psychologists have begun to study the correlation between music and performance in exercise. It is thought that music takes peoples minds off pain and fatigue, elevates mood and even increases metabolic efficiency. When people are listening to music during activities, their performance is typically better even though the subject does not even realise. Not only does the pace and tempo of a song play apart in the effectiveness, but also the mental attachment and emotional relations with the songs.
Music can stimulate heart rate to increase and agitate breathing. Rhythm response describes the tempo and speed of the music that is playing and this aspect determines the motivation for movement. The human body instinctively aims to syncronise movement and emotions with the music.
It is evident that music is used to energise and stimulate the sense and create movement. Throughout my design, using simple shapes I want to echo the idea that music creates movement and can transition the daily grind of work in a call center to a fun energetic environment that promotes and enhances the work environment. Through colour and movement of shapes I am to visualise the experience of being transformed through music.
