Musical expectancy: The influence of musical structure on emotional response

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (5):584-585 (2008)
Abstract
When examining how emotions are evoked through music, the role of musical expectancy is often surprisingly under-credited. This mechanism, however, is most strongly tied to the actual structure of the music, and thus is important when considering how music elicits emotions. We briefly summarize Leonard Meyer's theoretical framework on musical expectancy and emotion and cite relevant research in the area
