ABSTRACT. My analysis complements the growing literature on the embodied experience of performing music, the time course of emotional communication in music, and the contribution of expressive cues to musical emotion decoding. The overall results provide strong evidence for the form and structure of music, the logic of musical ideas that corresponds to the phenomenological character of music, and the joint influences of structural and expressive cues on emotional responses to music. pp. 53–58
