Music and the Mind

The work of John Sloboda has marked the psychology of music both by providing it with a solid scientific grounding based on the most up-to-date findings in neuroscience and the cognitive sciences and by ensuring that a scientific approach to understanding musical phenomena is not disconnected from the real world of musicians. An excellent pianist himself, he has been sensitive to the more dynamic aspects of musical cognition as well as to little studied aspects of the role of emotion and affect in music listening and performance. He has set out the bases of a psychological theory of musical performance. This chapter highlights these highly original aspects of John Sloboda’s work and discusses some of their implications by showing how musicological analysis can be revised in the light of a dynamic psychology of situated cognition.

Keywords:   John Sloboda, cognitive music psychology, musical universals, music performance, temporal organization, listening, listeners, generativity
