Musical fear signalling

It's strange but the mechanism of music influence, especially in the case of fear, has not been a subject of serious research yet. Fear can influence many negative human behaviours: it causes mental disorders, it's used by politicians, and impacts all human life. For these reasons, the EU-funded EMUSIG project will focus on interdisciplinary research using scientific tools of neuroscience, behavioural psychology, and music theory. The research will be based on the biological and cultural response to scary music. This will permit the creation of a catalogue of musical fear signalling. A synthesis will be published in a comprehensive report.
