Music Perception and Cognition

Padma Iyer (Author)
Synopsis Music is an acoustic medium. Every aspect of musical structure which allows compositions to differ from one another is conveyed in the sound-pressure waves which make up a musical performance. However, music-listening can be considered as a complex interaction of the processes of perception, cognition, problem solving, analogical and metaphorical reasoning and emotional mapping. The present book provides a comprehensive analysis of the diverse aspects of music perception and cognition. It will serve as a highly useful reference tool not only for teachers and students of music but also for all general readers who are interested in music.
