Event Details

“Feel the Music” Music & Science Expo | North Beach

Most of us have experienced joy, sadness, or fear while listening to a live musical performance or the score to a film. What can science tell us about how music and sound affect our brain and induce feelings?

“Feel the Music” is a two-day forum on music and the science of how it produces emotion, happening at swissnex San Francisco.

Over the course of two days, swissnex San Francisco and the NCCR Affective Sciences research center at the University of Geneva bring together renowned psychologists, neuropsychologists, engineers, literary theorists, artists, musicologists, musicians, entrepreneurs, and historians from around the world to discuss the latest research on music and emotion.

A 3D, ambisonic sound studio helps make decisions in architecture, urban planning, and multimedia art, while new devices like the MobileMuse estimate the emotional impact of a live performance.

Free, but an RSVP is required.

Learn about these and other new technologies in music research in Session 3 of “Feel the Music,” a forum on music and emotions.
