Summary Part 1 introduces various perspectives on the role of meaning and affect in musical communication. Part 2 presents three different approaches to listener's interpretive responses to musical structure as a musical event unfolds in real time. Part 3 describes a variety of approaches to pitch perception and its role in determining a listener's sense of tonality. In Part 4, important new perspectives on the representation and acquisition of musical knowledge are presented. Part 5 considers some provocative work on performance that explores how performers convey one of several interpretations of a score to listeners.
"Cognitive Bases of Musical Communication" systematically extends and deepens our knowledge of the mechanisms by which music is communicated among human beings. By providing insight into possible applications of musical patterns to cognitive theory in general, this volume breaks new ground in this fruitful, intriguing new psychological discipline.
