Event details

A Seminar by Elisabeth Margulis

Huron (2006) observes that music is a uniquely repetitive stimulus. While music theory has examined repetition in the context of form, there has been surprisingly little examination from either music or psychology of the dynamic experience of repeating elements. What is repetition's function in the learning, syntax, and enjoyment of music? This talk offers some theoretical and empirical approaches to this topic.
