Transcript of ToK Presentation: Music

Thank You Music is highly subjective, as with any form of art.

There are different factors contributing to liking a certain piece of music

In each case, there is bias and there are limitations to judging it.

It’s a very individual thing and should be kept that way. Conclusion Definition of Music:
“The art of expression in sound, in melody, in harmony, including both composition and execution”- Chambers Dictionary

Could be seen as a way of understanding, interpreting the world around us.

Created to evoke emotions within the recipient

Put forward as art
