Tetiana Kablova

Abstract


Social reality affects all forms of human activity. Social and ideological trends, tastes of different ages, patterns of behavior, kinds of emotional reactions have historically specific social and cultural character. In this context various forms of art appear as different aspects of the phenomenon of art. They exist throughout the sociocultural, historical continuum and have various forms according to the development of mankind in general. Historically, the changes of the aesthetic needs of society led to the changing in the kinds of art that showed the social and artistic needs of the period.

The concepts of art and elements of art have a significant theoretical potential for this issue. These conceptions are considered in the socio-cultural context in scientific works of such researchers as O. Burlina, O. Vasylyev, A. Zis, N. Kashyna, R. Moskvina, I. Pal. The fundamental links between culture’s development and process of formation of new genres, characterized by the influence of other kinds of art, are found out in the researches of S. Avyerintsev, B. Asafiev, M.Bahtin, O. Sohor, Yu. Tynyanov, M. Kahan, B.Propp, O. Freydenberh.

The scientific works of A. Bakushynska, P. Blonska, J. Borev, O. Kabakov, O. Losev, Y. Lotman, B. Likhachev, O. Nemkovych, S. Rappoport, V. Redya, L. Savyenkova, M. Severynova, L. Stolovich, M. Taboridze, Shevchenko, B. Yusovis are devoted to the issues of integration in the cultural and art perspective:. The role of social influence on integrative processes in art has not showed in in the scientific literature properly. So it causes the the relevance of the topic.

Each period of history leads to the fact that people have their own variant of behavior. Their range of activities is a reflection of the social situation of the nation. Art implicitly includes the socialization factor, linking it with the society where we can see the concentration of human relationship with the world and its influence human behavior.

In this case, an important factor becomes the lack of limits of individual sovereignty. At the same time we can see that the person gets acquainted with aesthetic and artistic values through the self-development and spiritual enrichment. Arts are generated by spiritual atmosphere of an era. It stipulates that between the works of different kinds of arts which are belonged to the single space-time continuum, we can see some analogies and integration processes.

The unity of any artistic cultures can be showed in a closeness, connections of the specific musical and scenic things. The integration of these arts can demonstrate closer and organic character.

The problem of integrating the arts is one of the most difficult in theoretical researches in Arts. Tendency of uniting of arts and their mutual influence on each other are caused by the phenomena of social life and various forms of social consciousness. During the evolution and in the process of differentiation and acquisition of the specific features, updating means of expression, the kinds of art have never been isolated from each other and have always been interconnected, basing on a single cultural-historical process.

The study of music culture is primarily aimed at highlighting the personalities of creators, studying the works of different composers in intramusical area.

The category of musical culture often is used by scientists as a synonymous of the creative works of the greatest artists of nations and eras.

Integrative, primarily, is understood as a interpenetration of elements despite of their fragmentation. These kinds of art have a genetic kinship and communications between different directions of arts. Cultural integration is recognized as a process of deepening cultural interaction and mutual influence in sociology and cultural studies. In the process of historical development, various art forms such as music, painting, sculpture, architecture come to integration processes of assimilation and sharing stylistic and compositional means.

The music of composers reflects reality in all its manifestations. We can see an assimilation and a transformation of genres and styles, an imagery paradigm of figurative aspects of one kind of art and implement them in music.

In this context the music is considered. Fine arts have inspired musical culture in Ukraine the last third of XX-th –the beginning of XXI-st centuries. Ukrainian musical heritage, inspired by painting, has a wide range of instrumental and vocal, symphonic embodiment. Thus, the main trend of contemporary art as a form of art is a synthesis of art and represents the polylogue of different times and specific techniques from other arts.
