Vocal aesthetics – Incredibly terrible or terribly incredible?

Certainly, everyone is familiar with some singing voices that sound like fingernails on a chalkboard, while others stir your heart and give you goosebumps. In addition, you have probably already tried to describe which vocal qualities actually leave these impressions.

With an online survey within the scope of our research at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, Frankfurt, Germany, we intend to follow these impressions and to explore the emotional effect of voices while developing a deeper understanding of their characteristics.

The study takes about 25 minutes. After completion of the study, you will have the possibility to participate in a raffle. Each tenth participant will receive an Amazon voucher worth $10. Curious? We would be delighted if you could join our study at the following link:
