MUS 2304 - Music Cognition


1 Course Unit(s)
Understanding the complex and mysterious musical mind is a relatively new and interdisciplinary effort. Music cognition applies the methods of cognitive science (experimental, computational, and neurological) to musical issues and problems. Psychoacoustics compares the physical characteristics of sound (harmonic spectrum, intensity, physical location in space) with what is actually perceived by the listener (timbre, pitch, loudness, perceived position in space). Recent research and experiments in psychoacoustics and music cognition will be studied and reproduced.
