How Does Music Affect Your Mood and Emotions - …


Note: When I wrote this paper, I was a sophomore at and had recently been exposed for the first time to more contemporary music. I didn't appreciate it, and I approached my research with less than an open mind. I found very little published information on this subject, so for my central argument I relied heavily—almost exclusively—on the book by Torres and Torres (see below for the full citation). I'm not convinced of its reliability, and anyway, using only one major source doesn't make for a very firm conclusion. (My other sources are mostly there to get the number of sources my teacher required.) Thus, I believe my conclusions, correct or not, have no valid basis. I haven't done any more recent study on this subject, but I suspect that my conclusions are incorrect, or at least imbalanced. Nevertheless, I'm keeping this paper here for archival purposes. Hey, someone might be interested in reading a biased paper. After all, there is a shortage of biased material in the Internet, right? ;-)

Music is good for your heart also. In this case, benefits comenot from music style, but it's tempo. Italian and British researchers recruited young men and women, half of whom were trained musicians. The participants listened to six styles of music in headphones, including rap and classical pieces, with random two-minute pauses. As the participants listened to the music, the researchers monitored their breathing, heart rates and blood pressure. Heart and breathing rates were faster when they listened to lively music. And when the musical slowed, so did their heart and breathing rates. Some results were surprising. During the musical pauses, heart and breathing rates normalized or reached more optimal levels. Whether or not a person liked the style of music did not matter. The tempo, or pace, of the music had the greatest effect on relaxation.


The 30 minutes recommended by the AHA-ACSM report is a departure from the recent guidelines of other authoritative organizations—the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies and the International Association for the Study of Obesity—both of which, like the USDA, have recommended that we exercise for up to 60 minutes a day to avoid what the USDA calls “unhealthy weight gain.” But the reason for this 60-minute recommendation is precisely that so little evidence exists to support the notion that exercising less has any effect.

Consonant harmony can produce a wide variety of effects. Consonant harmony can be bright or dark, cheerful or melancholy, lyrical or disconnected, upbeat or slow. Dissonant harmony, although it sometimes can have similar effects as consonant harmony, is usually irritating, agitating, or has one of any number of other negative effects. It is important to note that individual dissonances occur in consonant harmony, as do consonances in dissonant harmony. This discussion refers to the character of the harmony as a whole.

Although words have a definite effect on the music listener, their main influence is manifested through rhythm and tempo, which will be discussed later. For now, the disharmonic use of words in music (as classified by Torres and Torres) includes meaningless phrases and excessive repetition. Words are often made meaningless by over-repetition or, particularly in religious music, irrelevance to the music or message. Words in harmonic music have easily understood meaning. They are relevant to the composition, and are not repeated excessively.
