Communicating emotions

Regular concert-goers are used to seeing singers use expressive and often very dramatic facial expressions. Indeed, music and speech are alike in that they use both facial and acoustic cues to engage listeners in an emotional experience. McGill researchers wondered what roles these different cues played in conveying emotions. To find out, they did an experiment where participants were offered recordings of short phrases (neutral statements, all of which were seven syllables long, such as “children tapping to the beat” or “people talking by the door”), which were then spoken or sung with a variety of emotions. Participants were then offered these recordings in three different formats: either audio alone, video alone (with no sound), or full audio-video recordings, and were asked to identify the emotions that the performers’ intended to convey.
