Strong Experiences with Music

(p.547) Chapter 20 Strong Experiences with Music
Handbook of Music and Emotion: Theory, Research, Applications

Alf Gabrielsson

Oxford University Press

Music psychology has few answers to the question that most people interested in music consider the most relevant: how are we affected by music? Disappointment with this state of affairs was the basic motivation for the Strong Experiences with Music (SEM) project. This chapter describes what reactions may occur in particularly strong experiences with music, explores which factors can elicit such reactions, and considers what consequences the experience may have for the individual. It includes a review of earlier research on strong experiences, followed by a description of the SEM project, the associated analysis of reactions, the music in SEM, influencing factors, and a concluding discussion.
