Handbook of Music and Emotion: Theory, Research, Applications

John A. Sloboda

The term ‘music in everyday life’ has been prevalent in the research literature for about a decade. The earliest treatments were predominantly found within sociology and media studies, with increasing attention by psychologists in more recent years. This chapter aims to extract and systematize some key issues relating to emotion as it impinges on, and interacts with, music in everyday life. It identifies ten dimensions on which everyday music has been distinguished from the ‘non-everyday’. Each of these dimensions is described in turn, drawing out potential implications for emotion of each dimension. These implications will act as working hypotheses against which to organize and evaluate the empirical research literature.
