ABSTRACT. The term Becker adapts from Bourdieu, habitus of listening, underlines the interrelatedness of the perception of musical emotion and learned interactions. Montague Lavy remarks that a listener engaged with the complex structures of a piece of music is generating expectancies of his own in response to that music. Norris explores the notion of response-dependence as applied to our experience, knowledge, and judgement of musical works. Zentner et al. observe that music is an effective means of mood, induction in the laboratory, a means of mood manipulation to alter consumer behavior, and a tool for the treatment of emotional disorders.
