Chapter 6 consists mostly of lengthy excerpts from conversations with two noted musical experts: Rahayu Supanggah and Sudarsono Wignyosaputro. Following their lead, the chapter takes a philosophical turn about music and emotion. The two main questions they tackle are “What is the relationship between what people say they feel when listening to music and what they actually feel?” and “How much of musical rasa is in the piece, how much in the performance, and how much in the perception of the performance?”

Keywords:   rasa, balungan, garap, aesthetics, performance, perception, emotion
