About this survey
The emotions we perceive in music: agreement and language
Thank you for participating in this survey, it will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete it.
In this study, we address the relation between the emotions perceived in pop and rock music and people that speak different languages. We use pop/rock music (in English and Spanish) since these musical styles can be considered as neutral and homogeneous even if sung in different languages. The musical fragments are rated with emotion tags of the Geneva Emotion Music Scale (GEMS). We also aim at characterizing perceived emotion with respect to mother tongue, demographic data, musical knowledge and taste, and familiarity with the examples.
The survey has three main sections:
Section 1 collects general demographic data, including mother tongue.
Section 2 randomly reproduces music excerpts and collects perceived emotion ratings in pop/rock music excerpts.
Section 3 collects information about musical knowledge, ability, and training based on the Gold-MSI self-assessment test.
At the end of this survey and as a small thank you for your time, we will provide your Music Sophistication Index, which measures your ability to engage with music, as it was defined in Müllensiefen, D., Gingras, B., Stewart, L. & Musil, J. (2014). The Musicality of Non-Musicians: An Index for Measuring Musical Sophistication in the General Population. PLoS ONE 9(2): e89642. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0089642.
