In Indian music there is an instrument, strummed gently, called the Tambura. The player sets the tone and feel of a musical group of tablas, sitars and others. When the players improvise they will listen to the Tambura to remind them and guide them back to the theme of the composition being played.  This is what art does to me; it sets the tone and feelings of experience.
