*

*> The power of music to convey a certain emotion can now be predicted by a
*

*> mathematical model, an Australian psychologist has found. Emery Schubert
*

*> of
*

*> the University of New South Wales will report the first study of its
*

*> kind
*

*> to mathematically quantify the emotional impact of music at the
*

*> International Conference on Auditory Display in Sydney in July.
*

*>
*

*> Schubert has developed a formula that relates features such as the
*

*> music's
*

*> loudness, tempo and pitch to an emotion perceived by the listener. "With
*

*> my
*

*> formulas I can play a piece of music and predict what emotional impact
*

*> it
*

*> will have," Schubert told ABC Science Online.
*

*>
*

*> He found that the loudness of a piece of music was the most powerful
*

*> predictor of whether the music was arousing. Next in line was tempo: the
*

*> faster the music, the more arousing the music.
