In Reply to: RE: Has there ever been a study done on the effect of different music on different personality types? posted by artemus on July 12, 2017 at 16:54:48
That is an interesting question - what series of notes move one person and do zilch for someone else.
Not only personality types but cultural backgrounds. I live in Hong Kong and Cantonese speakers/listeners are born into a 9 tine language that requires a person to listen very closely to be able to understand exact pronunciation and intonation. If the word MA is spoken differently it will mean something completely different.
In English - often the meaning is the same no matter how the word is spoken (though you might miss sarcasm or something. But this is quite different.
So you have your first language, your personality, your cultural belief system, religion, political opinions (as to what you take from the meaning of the songs) predisposition to liking or disliking them based on that.
Then I wonder about the very shape of your ears. They're not all the same.
I can't answer your question - just adding more variables to it.
My favorite singer lately is Aurora Aksnes if we talk about pushing my emotion buttons. I hope you get some interesting answers as to understanding and predicting what we will like based on personality and all perhaps all the other factors. I believe that a person's spoken language can be influential here - Some languages are guttural with a lot of sibilant S. So music systems that play that and perhaps shout that will be preferable than to perhaps someone from France or England. This may also influence a composer or musician to interpret a given piece of music differently.
After watching the video, I ordered All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend on CD. Wow, the sound quality on my main system is really bad I could not listen to it after 3 songs. I tried listening on Amazon music through my desktop setup, just as bad. Harsh sounding and shrill, ouch!
I picked it up and will bring it the California Audio Show and see how it sounds.
The album sounded fine via youtube into my KEF LS-50s
This might explain why I could not enjoy the sound of the CD on my system. It sounds okay through my Koss Porta Pros....
I used the CD in a number of rooms and had no issues with brightness. Pretty good for pop i felt actually and very good on the AN players being used at the show. Rooms with Redbook CD players consistently sounded better than rooms using computer based playback.
Nice overview -RGA.
Danish is somewhat of a tonal language, with vowels that are very close together in sound (to the English ear) and hard consonants (in English) that are hardly sounded in the middle and end of a word in Danish. However, it has a somewhat simple grammatical structure, not very dissimilar to English.
Nevertheless, the written word is unintelligible, unless you know how to sound the vocabulary with your own mouth.
The Norwegian singer you like has a sweet voice.
she's sweet and keeps her clothes on and she actually has singing talent. She grows on me the more and more I listen.
Then again I may be having a midlife crisis. LOL :)
