This web-based experiment is part of an investigation of the universality of various aspects of music perception.
Why do we like some sorts of music but not others?
Are there innate constraints on how we hear music?
How do people perceive the structure of music?
Collecting data from around the world can help to illuminate these issues by revealing how different aspects of music perception vary with culture, age, musical training, and other factors. By taking part in our study you can provide us with some of this data!
Anyone who wishes to do so may participate in our study. The questions should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
