Emotional response to 4 Mozart pieces played by the Boston Sympony Orchestra is measured behaviorally and psychophysiologically in the conductor, musicians and listeners simultaneously. The time-varying data are related to the musical structure, the interpretation, and to the listening conditions (live vs recorded concert) using functional data analysis.
