This chapter reviews a number of perceptual, cognitive, and behavioural (indirect) measures of affect that may help us understand musical emotions. It is organized as follows. First, the problems and limitations of self-report are described. Two main problems – demand characteristics and limited access to one own's internal processes – are discussed. Following this, the logic of indirect measures of affect is outlined, along with a set of definitions. This section also features a conceptual model of affective responding, which aims to facilitate distinctions and integration between different classes of indirect measures. The subsequent section describes seven classes of indirect measures and provides detailed examples of each class. The chapter ends with a brief summary and conclusions.

Keywords:   musical emotions, music, emotion, self-report, demand characteristics, internal process, affective response
