What is ‘Aesthetic’ ?

Aesthetics is the philosophical study of beauty and taste. The term stems from the Greek word “Aisthetikos” meaning “of sense perception,” and is related to the study of sensory values. A set of principles concerned with the nature and appreciation of beauty, especially in art. The art is divided into many parts of human senses. From the senses in the body, the first thing is eyesight, such as painting, a picture or a view of nature. The second is to hear the sounds, whether it’s the music, natural sound or the poetry. The third is to touch things such as Touching the sand at the sea or touching your beautiful silk. The fourth is the smell. Whether it’s the natural scent when it rains, smell of the bookstore scent or the smell of perfume everything is aesthetics.

Aesthetics for mental therapy

During this situation, Corona virus is pandemic worldwide. Which, affects every human being in every way, regardless of which is the most worrisome is the economy that is in a state of crisis Businesses have to shut down, including the number of unemployed rising to the point of concern. Each country must close their own countries, causing The economy must stop suddenly. Employees have to switch to work from home. There is a lock down to set the curfew to leave the house. In which, staying at home for a long time causes stress in an individual, because some people lack income or others have nothing to do. For me, listening to music is another aesthetics that can help heal and relieve stress.

Sometimes, sitting and calm in private space of your house and keeping your mind calm and let yourself to relax with your favorite song can help relieve stress so much. Myself during this detention, sometimes feeling stressed because of can’t meeting my friends and can’t leaving home or going anyplace. Last week, I did one of the interesting challenge on my instagram account , so I wanted to come and share it to everyone. This is ’12-day song challenge’. Which is a great opportunity to recommend my lovey favourite songs and forward songs to everyone 😛

Nowadays, listening to music doesn’t have to wait on the radio like in the olden days. We can listen to all music, anywhere and anytime from on various platforms such as YouTube, Spotify, Apple music, Joox or etc.

It’s true because listening to wanting to sunbathe by the beach or to Hawaii immediately. And if you listen well, will hear the sound of waves and birds too! The mood of the song is wonderful.

Clairo – Pretty Girl

Pretty Girl: for this topic, it is quite an answer that I call ‘reason no reason’I listened to this song when I finished watching a movie last year. In which the story of the movie talks about goodbye and the fact that forever does not exist. However, the meaning of the song has nothing relate to the movie. Anyway every time, I listen to this song, my brain will think of the characters’ farewell scene automatically.

It’s getting harder to understand, to understand
How you felt in my hands, in my hands

Please save me
My soul’s tainted
It’s how I’ve been born

Pink Sweat$ – Honesty

Honesty is the first single off of Pink Sweat$ ‘debut EP Volume 1. Over a chilled Thrice Cooked Media instrumental, the Philadelphia singer croons about a girl he wants who is afraid of commitment.

She said, “What if I dive deep?
Will you come in after me?
Would you share your flaws with me? Let me know.”
I told her, “Thinking is all wrong
Love will happen when it wants
I know it hurts sometimes, but don’t let it go.”

Day 10 | A song that make you sad

A song that make you sad

Lil Peep – crybaby

Crybaby: The reason why I choose this song is because every time I listen to it, I feel uncomfortable and sad. Part comes from how I understood how he felt when he write this song.

“Crybaby” is the first song off Lil Peep’s namesaked album, Crybaby. Peep has performed the song many times in live shows, such as the Rap-Festival “Rolling Loud”.

I found myself complaining alot, being very ungrateful for the things that I have in my life.. so I got the Crybaby tattoo on my face to remind me that I have been doing really good, and there’s alot of people on earth who would love to be in the position I’m in, so it keeps me really grateful.

Buttercup With a strained, emotional vocal track filled with grooving and soothing guitar solos, this first track on Jack Stauber’s 2017 album Pop Food starts the album strong, with powerful lyrics and an engaging combination of synths with a touch kicking bass.
