Cross-cultural emotional experience in response to music

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Are emotions in music cross-culturally experienced? While analyses of the emotional experience in response to music has bloomed in the last two decades, the research community is still not able to establish if this experience transcends cultural boundaries, since our knowledge is based largely on a small number of cross-cultural studies. Since Gregory and Varney’s 1996 study of the cross-cultural
perception of emotion in music, speculations about the universality or cultural uniqueness of emotions in music have been equivocal.
