Why do we enjoy listening to sad music?
A hybrid evening of research, music, and emotion. Honorary Frijda Chair holder Prof. dr. David Huron guides us through the science of sad sounds, addressing two questions:
- What makes something sound sad?
- And how is it that listening to sad music can be enjoyable?
Enriched by an interdisciplinary panel discussion, and accompanied by a measured dose of sad music.
