ineed, I get a strange vibe from this article, specially being an experimental computer composer. But what does everyone else think? They are dealing with tonal music I believe...

*

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

*> 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
*

*

*>
*

*> 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.
