The Ryerson Audio-Visual Database of Emotional Speech and Song (RAVDESS): A dynamic, multimodal set of facial and vocal expressions in North American English
The RAVDESS is a validated multimodal database of emotional speech and song consisting of 24 professional actors, vocalizing lexically-matched statements in a neutral North American accent, which shows high levels of emotional validity and test-retest intrarater reliability.

CMERS, a Computational Music Emotion Rule System for the control of perceived musical emotion that modifies features at the levels of score and performance in real-time is presented.
Dynamic response: real-time adaptation for music emotion
Music plays an enormous role in today's computer games; it serves to elicit emotion, generate interest and convey important information. Traditional gaming music is fixed at the event level, where…

An affective computing architecture for the dynamic modification of music with a view to predictably affecting induced musical emotions: its emotionality is discussed.
The emergence of music from the Theory of Mind
It is commonly argued that music originated in human evolution as an adaptation to selective pressures. In this paper we present an alternative account in which music originated from a more general…
