Music is often reflective of "the cultural melting pot.
Preferences[ edit ] Effect of culture[ edit ] Culturally bound preferences and familiarity for music begin in infancy and continue through adolescence and adulthood. Both groups preferred either meter when compared with arbitrary meter.
Adolescents from Singapore and the UK rated familiarity and preference for excerpts of ChineseMalayand Indian music styles. Participants from Singapore showed higher preference for and ability to recognize the Chinese and Malay samples; UK participants showed little preference or recognition for any of the music samples, as those types of music are not present in their native culture.
Among the participants, there was one group with little musical experience and one group that had received supplemental musical experience in their lifetimes. Although both American and Japanese participants disliked formal Eastern styles of music and preferred Western styles of music, participants with greater musical experience showed a wider range of preference responses not specific to their own culture.
In contrast, the Western and Indian participants more successfully recognized music from their own culture and felt the other culture's music was more tense on the whole.
These results indicate that everyday exposure to music from both cultures can result in cognitive sensitivity to music styles from those cultures. Spanish bilingual speakers also identified most closely with the Spanish song.
Emotion recognition[ edit ] The cue-redundancy model of emotion recognition in music differentiates between universal, structural auditory cues and culturally bound, learned auditory cues see schematic below.
Culturally bound cues[ edit ] Culture-specific cues rely on knowledge of the conventions in a particular musical tradition. According to the cue-redundancy model, individuals exposed to music from their own cultural tradition utilize both psychophysical and culturally bound cues in identifying emotionality.
The latter result implies cultural differences in anger perception occur independently of familiarity, while the similarity of American and Korean happy and sad judgments indicates the role of universal auditory cues in emotional perception.
Both low-level cues e. Similarities between aggressive vocalizations and angry music e. STEM argues that for some listeners with low expertise, emotion perception in music is based on stereotyped associations held by the listener about the encoding culture of the music i.
Particularly, STEM provides more specific predictions, namely that emotion in music is dependent to some extent on the cultural stereotyping of the music genre being perceived.
Complexity[ edit ] Because musical complexity is a psychophysical dimension, the cue-redundancy model predicts that complexity is perceived independently of experience.
However, South African and Finnish listeners assign different complexity ratings to identical African folk songs. American listeners who hear classical or jazz excerpts multiple times rate the elicited and conveyed emotion of the pieces as higher relative to participants who hear the pieces once.
Memory[ edit ] Enculturation is a powerful influence on music memory. Both long-term and working memory systems are critically involved in the appreciation and comprehension of music.
Long-term memory enables the listener to develop musical expectation based on previous experience while working memory is necessary to relate pitches to one another in a phrase, between phrases, and throughout a piece. Neuroscientific evidence suggests that memory for music is, at least in part, special and distinct from other forms of memory.
Despite the universality of music, enculturation has a pronounced effect on individuals' memory for music. Evidence suggests that people develop their cognitive understanding of music from their cultures. For instance, brain areas involved in attention, including the right angular gyrus and middle frontal gyrus, show increased activity when listening to culturally unfamiliar music compared to novel but culturally familiar music.
One long-term instance of plasticity is bimusicalism, a musical phenomenon akin to bilingualism. Bimusical individuals frequently listen to music from two cultures and do not demonstrate the biases in recognition memory and perceptions of tension displayed by individuals whose listening experience is limited to one musical tradition.
For instance, after half an hour of passive exposure to original melodies using familiar Western pitches in an unfamiliar musical grammar or harmonic structure the Bohlen—Pierce scaleWestern participants demonstrated increased recognition memory and greater affinity for melodies in this grammar.Culture in music cognition refers to the impact that a person's culture has on their music cognition, Enculturation is a powerful influence on music memory.

The different types of music genres have shaped American culture and social behavior of Americans. The popular music of our day reflects the culture of our day. We can see the fingerprints of a certain generation in the lyrics and sound of that time. One recent and almost outrageous example of this is the song "#SELFIE" by the Chainsmokers. Culture in music cognition refers to the impact that a person's culture has on their music cognition, including their preferences, emotion recognition, and musical memory. Musical preferences are biased toward culturally familiar musical traditions beginning in infancy, and adults' classification of the emotion of a musical piece depends on both culturally specific and universal structural features.
