PERSONALITY AND THE CONTEMPORARY MUSICAL CULTURE: PROBLEMS OF INTERACTION


Research objective is to study a catharsis phenomenon associated with perception of the work of art by contemporary young people.
Research methods are questioning and the observation.
The research was conducted on the experimental basis by artists, designers, musicians and choreographers of Institute of Arts. One of the working methods was writing the essay.
The analysis of experimental material has shown that cathartic reactions of examinees did not proceed chaotically. Several levels of course of reactions were established: psychodynamic, emotional and conceptual. The first level is characterized by description of the actions predominantly by verbs. Colorful comparisons, adjectives and adverbs dominate in the description of the work of art at the second level. The third level connects with intertextual communications in the text.
This research has shown that a cathartic reaction is the tough hierarchial process which needs serious and profound studies.
