Dear List - Do any of you know of actual research relevant to this question? Thanks. DAn. ------- Forwarded Message From: "ATOM BIGGS" <forbiggs(at)> To: <dpwe(at)ICSI.Berkeley.EDU> Subject: ROCK MUSIC Date: Mon, 1 Jun 1998 21:03:51 -0700 Dan Ellis: Dr. Al Bregman said you might be able to help me, or at least send out a post on your "auditory" e-mail list. I'm involved in a discussion over the topic of "rock music". It's being said that the syncopated beats of rock music create physiological desires for sex and violence which completely offsets any altruistic message that a rock song might contain. Does this reasoning have any credence whatsoever? My understanding is that, apart from the lyrics, music's effect on thoughts and moods vary greatly from person to person and culture to culture. What is your insight on this? Do you know of any related research? atom biggs forbiggs(at) ------- End of Forwarded Message Email to AUDITORY should now be sent to AUDITORY(at) LISTSERV commands should be sent to listserv(at) Information is available on the WEB at
