Abstract The goal of the present study was to examine the relationships and differences between emotion perceived (i.e., the emotional quality expressed by music) and emotion felt (i.e., the individual's emotional response to music). Thirty-two participants listened to 12 music pieces differing in terms of a priori basic emotional quality, and rated the music from two points of view (i.e., emotion felt and emotion perceived) using 16 adjectives from dimensional models of emotion. As expected…

Relations Between Musical Structures and Perceived and Felt Emotions
There are two kinds of musical emotions: perceived emotion (expressed by musical pieces) and felt emotion (induced in listeners). In this study, we hypothesized that the emotion perceived by people
Emotion felt by the listener and expressed by the music: literature review and theoretical perspectives
Two broad categories, namely matched and unmatched, are proposed as being sufficient to capture the relationships between EL and IL, instead of four categories as suggested by Gabrielsson.
Relationships between expressed and felt emotions in music
Abstract This study examines empirically the possible relationships between the emotional quality one can attribute to musical stimuli (expressed emotion, or external locus of emotion) and the
Empathy and Emotional Contagion as a Link Between Recognized and Felt Emotions in Music Listening
Previous studies have shown that there is a difference between recognized and induced emotion in music listening. In this study, empathy is tested as a possible moderator between recognition and
Measuring music-induced emotion
Most previous studies investigating music-induced emotions have applied emotion models developed in other fields to the domain of music. The aim of this study was to compare the applicability of
Emotions evoked by the sound of music: characterization, classification, and measurement.
The authors addressed this question by progressively characterizing music-induced emotions in 4 interrelated studies by introducing a domain-specific device to measure musically induced emotions--the Geneva Emotional Music Scale.
Sad music induces pleasant emotion
It is concluded that the formulation of a new model would be essential for examining the emotions induced by music and that this new model must entertain the possibility that what the authors experience when listening to music is vicarious emotion.
Perceived and Induced Emotion Responses to Popular Music: Categorical and Dimensional Models
Music both conveys and evokes emotions, and although both phenomena are widely studied, the difference between them is often neglected. The purpose of this study is to examine the difference between
Individual Differences in Emotional Response to Music
Although emotional experiences with music have been enjoyed for millennia, research involving music has focused primarily on emotions perceived rather than felt, and not much research exists into
Feelings and Perceptions of Happiness and Sadness Induced by Music: Similarities, Differences, and Mixed Emotions
The authors examined similarities and differences between (1) listeners’ perceptions of emotions conveyed by 30-s pieces of music and (2) their emotional responses to the same pieces. Using identical


Emotion perceived and emotion felt: Same or different?
A distinction is made between emotion perception, that is, to perceive emotional expression in music without necessarily being affected oneself, and emotion induction, that is, listeners’ emotional
Emotional ratings of music excerpts in the western art music repertoire and their self-organization in the Kohonen neural network
Suggestions for basic emotional music excerpts in the western art music repertoire were collected through a survey that was sent to about 500 music professionals. A total of 78 music excerpts were
Personality, mood, and cognitive processing of emotional information: three conceptual frameworks.
Evidence is reviewed for the roles that mood states and personality traits play in the processing of emotion-congruent information across different cognitive tasks and the moderation and mediation approaches offer potential solutions to the lack of consistency obtained in the traditional literature.
Knowledge and Appraisal in the Cognition-Emotion Relationship
Abstract Recently there has been considerable theoretical and empirical work attempting to identify specific cognitive dimensions that shape the emotional response. However, this work has almost
When Arousal Influences Ad Evaluation and Valence Does Not (and Vice Versa)
This research examines, across 2 studies, the interplay between the valence and arousal components of affective states and the affective tone of a target ad. In the first study, music was used to
Current trends in the study of music and emotion: Overture
The study of musical emotion is currently witnessing a renaissance. However, the literature on music and emotion still presents a confusing picture. The conceptual terrain is still being mapped, and
Can There be Objectivity in Listening to Music?
The words objective and subjective are employed fairly freely in verbal discussions about music and the ways in which we listen to music, but they seem to be avoided when ideas are set down in print.
Emotional effects of startling background music during reading news reports: The moderating influence of dispositional BIS and BAS sensitivities.
News stories with startling background music were rated as more interesting and elicited higher zygomatic EMG activity and RSA than news stories with non-startling music, and no BIS-related effects or effects on memory were found.
Subjective and Physiological Responses to Music Stimuli Controlled Over Activity and Preference.
The results indicate that the dominant factor affecting emotional response was music type but not preference, and favorite music, regardless of music type, lowered subjective tension.
