A delightful journey through the psychology and science of music, Why You Love Music is the perfect book for anyone who loves a tune. Music plays a hugely important role in our emotional, intellectual, and even physical lives. It impacts the ways we work, relax, behave, and feel. It can make us smile or cry, it helps us bond with the people around us, and it even has the power to alleviate a range of medical conditions. The songs you love (and hate, and even the ones you feel pretty neutral about) don't just make up the soundtrack to your life -- they actually help to shape it. In Why You Love Music, scientist and musician John Powell dives deep into decades of psychological and sociological studies in order to answer the question "Why does music affect us so profoundly?" With his relaxed, conversational style, Powell explores all aspects of music psychology, from how music helps babies bond with their mothers to the ways in which music can change the taste of wine or persuade you to spend more in restaurants. Why You Love Music will open your eyes (and ears) to the astounding variety of ways that music impacts the human experience.

How can an abstract sequence of sounds so intensely express emotional states? How does music elicit or arouse our emotions? What happens at the physiological and neural level when we listen to music? How do composers and performers practically manage the expressive powers of music? How have societies sought to harness the powers of music for social or therapeutic purposes? In the past ten years, research into the topic of music and emotion has flourished. In addition, the relationship between the two has become of interest to a broad range of disciplines in both the sciences and humanities. The Emotional Power of Music is a multidisciplinary volume exploring the relationship between music and emotion. Bringing together contributions from psychologists, neuroscientists, musicologists, musicians, and philosophers, the volume presents both theoretical perspectives and in-depth explorations of particular musical works, as well as first-hand reports from music performers and composers. In the first section of the book, the authors consider the expression of emotion within music, through both performance and composing. The second section explores how music can stimulate the emotions, considering the psychological and neurological mechanisms that underlie music listening. The third section explores how different societes have sought to manage and manipulate the power of music. The book is valuable for those in the fields of music psychology and music education, as well as philosophy and musicology

This book explores the atmospheric dimensions of music and sound. With multidisciplinary insights from music studies, sound studies, philosophy and media studies, chapters investigate music and sound as shared environmental feelings. This book probes into cutting edge conceptual issues at the forefront of contemporary discussions on atmosphere, atmospherology and affect. It also extends the spatial and relational focus towards fundamentally temporal questions of performance, process, timbre, resonance and personhood. The capacity of atmospheric relations to imbue a situation with an ambient feeling and to modulate social collectives is highlighted, as well as auditory experience as a means of connecting with feelings. In addition to original research, the volume features a first translation of an important text by German phenomenologist Hermann Schmitz, and a debate on affect and atmosphere between the philosophers Jan Slaby and Brian Massumi. This novel contribution to the field of music research provides a strong theoretical framework, as well as vibrant case studies, which will be invaluable reading for scholars and students of music, sound, aesthetics, media, anthropology and contemporary philosophy.

The Evolution Of Emotional Communication

Why do we think that we can understand animal voices - such as the aggressive barking of a pet dog, and the longing meows of the family cat? Why do we think of deep voices as dominant and high voices as submissive. Are there universal principles governing our own communication system? Can we even see how close animals are related to us by constructing an evolutionary tree based on similarities and dissimilarities in acoustic signaling? Research on the role of emotions in acoustic communication and its evolution has often been neglected, despite its obvious role in our daily life. When we infect others with our laugh, soothe a crying baby with a lullaby, or get goose bumps listening to classical music, we are barely aware of the complex processes upon which this behavior is based. It is not facial expressions or body language that are affecting us, but sound. They are present in music and speech as "emotional prosody" and allow us to communicate not only verbally but also emotionally. This groundbreaking book presents a thorough exploration into how acoustically conveyed emotions are generated and processed in both animals and man. It is the first volume to bridge the gap between research in the acoustic communication of emotions in humans with those in animals, using a comparative approach. With the communication of emotions being an important research topic for a range of scientific fields, this book is valuable for those in the fields of animal behaviour, anthropology, evolutionary biology, human psychology, linguistics, musicology, and neurology.

Two of the most important social skills in humans are the ability to determine the moods of those around us, and to use this to guide our behavior. To accomplish this, we make use of numerous cues. Among the most important are vocal cues from both speech and non-speech sounds. Music is also a reliable method for communicating emotion. It is often present in social situations and can serve to unify a group's mood for ceremonial purposes (funerals, weddings) or general social interactions. Scientists and philosophers have speculated on the origins of music and language, and the possible common bases of emotional expression through music, speech and other vocalizations. They have found increasing evidence of commonalities among them. However, the domains in which researchers investigate these topics do not always overlap or share a common language, so communication between disciplines has been limited. The aim of this Research Topic is to bring together research across multiple disciplines related to the production and perception of emotional cues in music, speech, and non-verbal vocalizations. This includes natural sounds produced by human and non-human primates as well as synthesized sounds. Research methodology includes survey, behavioral, and neuroimaging techniques investigating adults as well as developmental populations, including those with atypical development. Studies using laboratory tasks as well as studies in more naturalistic settings are included.

What Music Is

An excerpt from the beginning of Chapter I: MUSIC is the method by which we use sounds for producing emotion, and may be conveniently divided into Dramatic, Classical, Lyrical, and Ecclesiastical Music. In dramatic music all the sounds used need not have a fixed relationship to each other. In classical, lyrical and ecclesiastical music the sounds should all have this fixed relationship. Sounds are produced by bowing, or blowing, or percussion; the latter is usually excluded from ecclesiastical music. Dramatic music depends more on colour than on form, Classical music more on form than colour: but both reach to the expression of the highest extreme of emotion. Lyrical music uses both colour and form, but keeps more in the middle range of emotion. Ecclesiastical music possesses forms of its own, and traverses a narrow field of immensely powerful emotion while it uses little colour, or rather it combines every colour used, with one strongly prevailing tint. It is at once apparent that dramatic music affords the widest choice of means to arouse emotion, and ecclesiastical music the narrowest; but compensation is secured by the fact that whereas in dramatic music some effects are common, or trivial, or comic ; in ecclesiastical music all are dignified. These four styles combine with, and overlap each other, in an endless variety of proportion and extent, and this variety has increased in direct ratio with the quantity of emotional effect introduced into sound groupings. As music both expresses and arouses emotion, it is evident that the more composers invent sound groupings expressing emotions, the more emotions they' are likely to arouse, and the more complex the emotion desired in the listener by the composer, the more complex the sound groupings will become. Complexity may, however, be carried sg far as to become unintelligible, but as that which is unintelligible is useless, it is undesirable, and men will never continue to seek that which is useless to them or their species, but will discard it. It will probably be generally conceded that the greatest potentiality in music is beauty, and that its principal objective is pleasure. Beauty being that elegance of shapely fitness that pleases the artistic instinct, and Pleasure being that feeling of gain and satisfaction, either sensory or intelligent, which all enjoy in some degree, but in very various quantity. Differences in appreciation of the two kinds of pleasure depend upon the relative proportions of the sensory and the intelligent in each person. The pleasures of the intellect are unknown to one man; the pleasures of the senses unloved by another. It is only natural then that we find two parties among musical people; those who hold that the highest office of music is to provide for the pleasure of the greatest number, and those who maintain that the pleasure of the cultivated few is the summum bonum. The first give the palm to simple sensory pleasure; the second exalt intelligent pleasure. The first require little knowledge but much love. They resemble those who look out upon some lovely scene in Nature, when the ever-varying fresh lights of morning chase each other over the pearly grey of the soft still sea, flecked here and there into light ripples by the first whispers of the waking breeze, which presently begins to stir the dew-spangled foliage into diamond showers, and the quiet flowers into tender coloured, tremulous smiles and swaying laughter, as the white, thin veils of morning mist fold and unfold, half-revealing numberless beauties, which one by one woo the sight, and draw into a delightful dreamland of simple, healthy sensory enjoyment....

The most fundamental debate in the philosophy of music involves the question of whether there is an artistically important connection between music and the emotions. Many theories of the nature and significance of music as an art form have maintained that at least one important value of music is its capacity to represent, express, communicate, or symbolize a variety of extra-musical emotions or a certain aspect of emotion. Yet these theories are rejected by those who believe that the value of any musical work is specifically musical, and accordingly must be independent of any relationship between music and the emotions. Now in paper, "Music and the Emotions" presents and critically examines the chief theories about the relationship between music and the emotions. These theories include those of Eduard Hanslick, Edmund Gurney, Carroll Pratt, Arthur Schopenhauer, Susanne Langer and Leonard Meyer.

Music as Atmosphere – Collective Feelings and Affective Sounds is the first collection of essays on music, sound, and atmosphere. The volume assembles an impressively cross-disciplinary panoply of scholars from music studies, sound studies, philosophy, and media studies, all of whom investigate music and sound as shared environmental feelings, that is, as atmospheres. The contributors explore atmosphereological approaches to musical traditions and practices, aural histories and memory, music’s relationship to the body, social collectives, and nature. They probe conceptual issues at the forefront of contemporary discussions of atmosphere and affect but then also extend the spatial and relational focus towards fundamentally temporal questions of performance, process, timbre, resonance, and personhood. In doing so they touch on the capacity of atmospheric relations to imbue a situation with an ambient feeling and to modulate social collectives but also underscore auditory experience as an acoustemology for atmosphere. In addition to original research, the volume features a first translation of an important text by German phenomenologist Hermann Schmitz, and a debate on affect and atmosphere between the philosophers Jan Slaby and Brian Massumi. This wide-ranging collection provides a strong theoretical framework and vibrant case-studies. It also proposes some intriguing new approaches. It constitutes a rich resource for scholars and students of music, sound, aesthetics, media, anthropology, and contemporary philosophy

An examination of the player's experience of sound in video games and the many ways that players interact with the sonic elements in games. In Playing with Sound, Karen Collins examines video game sound from the player's perspective. She explores the many ways that players interact with a game's sonic aspects--which include not only music but also sound effects, ambient sound, dialogue, and interface sounds--both within and outside of the game. She investigates the ways that meaning is found, embodied, created, evoked, hacked, remixed, negotiated, and renegotiated by players in the space of interactive sound in games. Drawing on disciplines that range from film studies and philosophy to psychology and computer science, Collins develops a theory of interactive sound experience that distinguishes between interacting with sound and simply listening without interacting. Her conceptual approach combines practice theory (which focuses on productive and consumptive practices around media) and embodied cognition (which holds that our understanding of the world is shaped by our physical interaction with it). Collins investigates the multimodal experience of sound, image, and touch in games; the role of interactive sound in creating an emotional experience through immersion and identification with the game character; the ways in which sound acts as a mediator for a variety of performative activities; and embodied interactions with sound beyond the game, including machinima, chip-tunes, circuit bending, and other practices that use elements from games in sonic performances.
