„Schöne Stellen“—Beautiful Passages in Music
If we are asked about music that we especially like or are moved by, and if we then try to describe what this involves, we are very likely to find ourselves using the word “beautiful.” If we wish to very briefly explain our enthusiasm for one or ...
Do Expert Listeners have Special Musical Preferences? A Study of the Musical Taste of Musicology Students
One facet of the study of musicology involves examining the theoretical and historical foundations of music and to gain thorough knowledge of the wide range of past and present musical styles together with the connected rules and systems. But ...
Emotions and musical structure
Numerous studies have examined the brain regions involved in processing music’s affective content in the context of Basic emotions (such as Happiness, Sadness, Fear) as well as the Circumplex dimensions (Arousal and valence). These studies ...
Multidimensional Aesthetic Responsiveness Scale (MARS): Psychometric analysis and test of measurement invariance across samples from the USA and Germany
It is generally accepted that most people are capable of having moving aesthetic experiences, with the caveat that the particular types of stimuli that are effective elicitors of positive aesthetic responses, and the intensity of aesthetic ...
