1737 - Music and Emotions: How Do Composers Manipulate Your Moods?
Hearing music is a whole-brain, whole-body holistic experience. Music awakens emotions and feelings in mind and body. Yet music is fundamentally a non-verbal form of expression that does not require semantic interpretation. How, then, does music reflect emotions? What causes the listener to react in certain ways? How do composers manipulate feelings, thoughts and energies, particularly when there are no lyrics to influence reactions and responses? What is causing certain sensations and feelings? What is your brain doing? Discover what and how various music components (there are at least six) alter awareness, physical, and emotional responsiveness. This course includes lecture, listening, and music-making participation, using CD and live performance samples, and periodic audience participation in non-verbal self-expression. Come learn, listen, feel, and enjoy. Lecture (plus questions). Exercise or Dance. Listening to Music or Other Audio.
