‘Emotion in Motion’ is an experiment designed to understand the emotional responses of people to a variety of musical excerpts, via self-report questionnaires and the recording of electrodermal activity (EDA) and heart rate (HR) signals. The experiment ran for 3 months as part of a public exhibition in Dublin, having nearly 4000 participants and over 12000 listening samples. This paper presents the methodology used by the authors to approach this research, as well as preliminary results derived from the self-report data and the physiology.
