Are you interested in how musical sounds are connected to emotions? 

We are currently running an online study on the perceived qualities of music. This study is open to people over the age of 18 with no diagnosis of a hearing impairment. The study will take approximately 10-20 minutes.

If interested, you can access the survey at: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9nPuYuWtugPdCXr

The survey data will be collected anonymously. However, if you choose to comment, like or follow this recruitment message on social media, you will be publicly identified with the study.

If you have any questions about this research, you can contact Dr. Ève Poudrier at
