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 music-specific and general emotion models – namely the Geneva Emotional Music Scale (GEMS), and the discrete and dimensional emotion models – in the assessment of music-induced emotions. A related aim was to explore the role of individual difference variables (such as personality and mood) in music… Expand

The Emotionality of Sonic Events : Testing the Geneva Emotional Music Scale (GEMS) for Popular and Electroacoustic Music
In the present study the Geneva Emotional Music Scale (GEMS-25) and its German offshoot, the GEMS-28-G were tested for measurement invariance across different types of musical stimuli. Additionally,Expand
Locus of emotion influences psychophysiological reactions to music
TLDR
A higher mean response in psychophysiological measures for the “perceived” than the ”felt” task is found, suggesting that the focus on one’s self distracts from the music, leading to weaker bodily reactions during the ‘felt’ task. Expand

A comparative study of the perception of music emotion between adults with and without visual impairment
In music listening, limitations on visual experience affect a listener’s abstract information processing and conceptualization of the music. The aim of this study is to examine the differences inExpand
Emotion perception in music is mediated by socio-emotional competence
This study investigated how adolescents’ general socio-emotional competence, in terms of empathy and problem behavior, would relate to a) biases in emotion perception, b) ability to recognize emotionExpand

Music is appreciated for emotional reasons across cultures, but knowledge on the cross-cultural similarities and differences of music-evoked emotions is still sparse. The current study comparedExpand
“Music is my drug”: Alexithymia, empathy, and emotional responding to music
Like alcohol or other drugs, music is often enjoyed by humans for its mood-altering effects. However, there is substantial individual variation in emotional responding to music (ERM). The presentExpand
Musical emotions in the absence of music: A cross-cultural investigation of emotion communication in music by extra-musical cues
TLDR
Novel empirical evidence of extra-musical effects on emotion and music is provided, and an interpretation from a multi-genre, cross-cultural perspective that suggests that prior knowledge elicited by lyrics and music genre labels are able to affect the musical emotion responses that music can communicate.

The role of mood and personality in the perception of emotions represented by music
TLDR
How listeners' personality and mood are reflected in their evaluations of discrete emotions represented by music is explored, and personality traits were strongly connected with preference ratings, and correlations reflected the trait-congruent patterns obtained in prior studies investigating self-referential emotional processing.

TLDR
It is concluded that music evokes emotions through mechanisms that are not unique to music, and that the study of musical emotions could benefit the emotion field as a whole by providing novel paradigms for emotion induction. Expand
