Mozart's classical music cuts crime rates in New Zealand mall

Mozart's classical music cuts crime rates in New Zealand mall

MOZART played over speakers in a pedestrian mall in the inner city of Christchurch, New Zealand has cut crime dramatically, according to figures published Monday by The Press.

The classical tactic was introduced to the City Mall in New Zealand's second largest city in June 2009.

The number of anti-social incidents recorded by security guards in the area fell from 77 a week in October 2008 to just two for the same time this year, the Christchurch-based newspaper reported.

Police agreed the music, played during the day time had transformed the area and created a calmer environment.

Central City Business Association manager Paul Lonsdale said the classical music was soothing to the ear.

"Classical music is known for reducing anti-social behavior," he said.

Heh nice. Not to mention probably should employ some Clockwork Orange type "re-education" to some of the nitwits out there.

There's been classical music playing at Perth Train Station in the past. Not sure about these days though.

I wonder if the Police removing the scum from the city had more to do with it than the music that was playing at the time.

The problem we have here is, the people they'd be trying to get thru to, need to have at "least" half (1/2) a brain cell for it to work on them.
This i fear is where it will fall short. Or just not fall at all.

nya nya nya nyaaaahhh.

wonder what the affects would be of playing Carl Orff or something equally sinister sounding

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozart_effect

There's a theory that Mozart can calm negative behaviours in children with ADHD and such disorders, I've been told there are some schools in Perth that use Mozart with the students that have behavioural problems. It's a pretty interesting concept.

What about Bach?

What about Yngwie Malmsteen?

What about a symphonic rendition of Straight Outta Compton?

Heh, Jase was making a reference to Flight of the Conchords, which he often does, amongst other things.  ;D

"the mozart effect" not bad name for a band or album or song, actually might be bit corny for a band name, anyways was a good read, cheers for the info mate
