PhD Qualifying Examination

Title: "A Survey on Features and Emotion in Musical Instrument Tones"


Miss Hiu Ting CHAN


Music emotion is a growing and popular research topic. Recent research has 
shown that different musical instrument sounds have strong emotional 
characteristics. It has also shown how these emotional characteristics change 
with different pitch and dynamics for the piano and bowed strings. However, 
there are still some unknowns that how the timbre, pitch, and dynamics 
influence the emotions characteristics of the instruments. The purpose of this 
survey is to show a motivation of investigating the relationship between music 
emotion and features in musical instrument tones. Music emotion research, along 
with the study of musical aspects and emotional characteristics of the brass, 
woodwind, and string instruments, is discussed in detail in this survey.
