Publication: An In-Situ Study of Real-Life Listening Context

Current models of musical mood are based on clean, noiseless data that does not correspond to real-life listen- ing experiences. We conducted an experience-sampling study collecting in-situ data of listening experiences. We show that real-life music listening experiences are far from the homogeneous experiences used in current mod- els of musical mood.
