Emotion Perception in Music
That Indian classical ragas induce different emotional states is well documented in Indian classical music theory, but there has been limited investigation to validate this. At the National Brain Research Centre we are conducting an internet based study wherein participants will listen to different raga excerpts and rate the extent to which various emotions are evoked by the ragas. We invite and encourage music lovers and listeners with or without musical training across the world to participate in the study.
Those of you who are not familiar with Indian Classical Music or are new to the idea of ragas, treat it like any other piece of music and participate in the study.
