Type and Music Preferences with Ian Ball

November 25, 2023 @ 1:45 pm 4:30 pm AEDT

An AusAPT in person event in Melbourne, Victoria

There are many reasons why particular pieces of music attract us and why we go back to those preferences. There are also reasons why particular styles of music are ones we avoid or find unbearable.

In 2006 Elwin Hall and I conducted a workshop at the AusAPT conference exploring these ideas and looked for linkages between one’s preferred type and one’s preferences for music.

This new session reviews the research conducted since then and serves as an update on this theme. The new evidence gives much more confidence about the relationships. There has been a reconceptualisation about music preferences and this will be explained in the session.

It is hoped that participants will have a greater appreciation of the linkages between type and preferences for music with particular attributes. You may be delighted with some live singing!
