New to this Edition: Completely revised to cover new developments including the opportunity to generate, analyze, and transform sound by computer, advances in neuroscience that influence thinking about the way music is processed in the brain, and increased collaboration between psychologists and musicians.

Product Description:

The Psychology of Music, Third Edition, is a comprehensive reference for understanding the perception, cognition, and performance of music. The first edition became the calling card for the establishment of the field, the second edition was extremely well-reviewed, and the third edition is now 80% revised, incorporating what are now standard areas of study on pitch, rhythm, scales, etc, with newer cutting edge research on computer models of music cognition, comparative studies, brain plasticity, and emotion.

Review:

"Chapter titles show continuing interest in many of the traditional topics--rhythm, melody, scales, musical ability, the nature of sound--and also in newer areas of inquiry, e.g., the neuropsychological study of musical perception. The editor has succeeded admirably in making this edition a valuable and timely resource for musicians and psychologists at the upper-division undergraduate level and above." --CHOICE, reviewed by W. M. Bigham, Emeritus, Morehead State University, March 1999 "I have on the shelf next to my desk several dozen excellent books about music perception and cognition, but none is more dog-eared or more used than The Psychology of Music, first edition. With that 1982 text, Deutsch accomplished for our field what Neisser did for cognitive psychology in 1967. By her choice of topics and authors, Deutsch made a bold claim to define those problems that ought to interest us (and in fact did). The Second Edition includes five excellent new chapters (worth the price of the book on their own) and substantially updated versions of the remaining 13 chapters. The first edition's influence on the field makes a compelling argument for the purchase of this updated and revised version, certain to be a blueprint for new research and a leading resource for many years to come." --Daniel J. Levitin, Stanford University and The University of California at Berkeley in MUSIC PERCEPTION, Vol. 16, #4, 1999 "This Second Edition is a significant update of the First Edition and is sure to maintain its position as one of the most useful collections of literature about the psychology of music." --Australian Journal of Psychiatry

Book Description Elsevier Science Publishing Co Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Psychology of Music serves as an introduction to an interdisciplinary field in psychology, which focuses on the interpretation of music through mental function. This interpretation leads to the characterization of music through perceiving, remembering, creating, performing, and responding to music. In particular, the book provides an overview of the perception of musical tones by discussing different sound characteristics, like loudness, pitch and timbre, together with interaction between these attributes. It also discusses the effect of computer resources on the psychological study of music through computational modeling. In this way, models of pitch perception, grouping and voice separation, and harmonic analysis were developed. The book further discusses musical development in social and emotional contexts, and it presents ways that music training can enhance the singing ability of an individual. The book can be used as a reference source for perceptual and cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, and musicians. It can also serve as a textbook for advanced courses in the psychological study of music. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780123814609
