CAMT Logo Celebrates 20th year/Le Logo De l'AMC Fête Sa 20^sup Ième^ Année

Article excerpt

The CAMT logo was proposed by Susan Munro, designed by Margrit Stutz and Freddi Jaggi of Design Link in Montréal, Québec, and was adopted by the CAMT Board of Directors in May, 1976. In Munro's explanation in the June 1981 CAMT newsletter, she states that the logo symbolizes the ear channel through which music reaches us, and the heart where our emotions and feelings are reflected. Within the "ear" is a symbolized shape of the human brain, the centre of human thinking and function, which is susceptible to musical stimulation. The shape of the ear alludes to the shape of a guitar, symbolizing musical instruments. The overall design of shapes and lines reflects composition, form, rhythm, and movement; as a whole, the logo represents the essence of the uniqueness of music therapy and the multidimensional qualities of music in relation to humans.
