Farbood in Research in Music Series Friday, Nov. 17 at 2:30

Mary Farbood (NYU) will present “The Temporal Dynamics of Music Versus Speech Processing” in the Old Chapel Conference Room on Friday, Nov. 17, 2017 at 2:30pm. All are welcome! An abstract is below.

Two studies comparing the temporal dynamics of music and speech are presented. The first focuses on tempo and how it affects key-finding; these results are then compared to various timescales associated with speech processing. The second study examines decoding time of musical structure using a key-finding task and discusses those results in the context of analogous speech research. These experiments highlight both differences and similarities in how music and speech are processed in time.
