Animacy, Anthropomimesis, and Musical Line
Broze, George John, III

2013, Doctor of Philosophy, Ohio State University, Music.
Music is argued to exhibit animacy cues—perceptual indicators that it is alive. In particular, musical lines mimic three characteristics of humans: voice, gait, and language. Empirical approaches are used to investigate the influence of polyphonic voice multiplicity on musical emotion perception, and to test for correspondences between melodic speed and pitch height in western compositions.
