Lecture series on Systematic Musicology (Psychology of Music)

„Why do humans as a species gravitate towards music? How does our brain enable us to not only perceive music but also have it play just in our own minds? How do movement and synchrony in music performance and in dance lead to pleasure?

These and many other questions will be addressed in the upcoming lecture series, “Systematic Musicology: Perception and Cognition of Music”, organised during the winter semester by the Dresden Music Cognition Lab (DMCL).

The lectures assume little prior knowledge and are intended for a wide academic audience. Entry is free, and credit points are available for students (with or without a final exam)

Lectures are held in English, on Tuesdays between 16:40–18:10, at the Institut für Kunst- und Musikwissenschaft (August-Bebel-Str. 20), starting with 11th October 2016.

We are excited to welcome you to this interdisciplinary and international lecture series!“
