Subject: Re: Music appreciation test for CI patients

I should specify my problem:

What I would like to do is to present complex pieces of music (multi-instrument) from different genres (e.g. pop, jazz, classic etc without vocals, if possible) to the subjects. The subjects are then asked to give their opinion about these tunes by filling out a questionnaire. The questionnaire e.g. contains questions about sound quality, preference for particular tunes, evtl. emotions etc. I was wondering whether anybody has developed something similar (maybe in the scope of a bigger test battery?).

Thank you for your comments!

Dear list,

I'm looking for music appreciation tests which would also be suitable for Cochlear Implant users.

I appreciate any references.
