This chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to explain the musical, social, and cultural processes that underlie the eventual realization of the acoustic performance event (by the composer, performer, arranger, and all others involved), the means by which they lead to the listener's response, and thence to short and long-term effects upon arousal level, cognition, emotion, and subsequent behaviour. It then discusses a reciprocal feedback model of musical communication. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords:   music, acoustic performance, musical communication, arousal level, cognition, emotion
