Emotional communication in song and speech
Professor Bill Thompson is one of the world’s foremost scholars in the area of music psychology. Together with other researchers he has demonstrated that emotional communication is a multimodal process that operates similarly in both music and speech. This lecture presents his recent research on the processes involved in vocal emotional communication, including analyses of acoustic cues used by singers and speakers to express emotions, examination of facial expressions used during emotional communication, and investigations of sensitivity to emotional speech among individuals with musical impairments (amusia).
Winthrop Professor Jane Davidson, Callaway/Tunley Chair of Music at The University of Western Australia, and extensively published scholar in the area of music psychology, will give a response to Professor Thompson’s lecture.
A short musical performance will be included as part of this event.
