Music for sleep and other purposes

Participate in a study that asks you to evaluate 14 1-minute excerpts of music. What is the effect of the music on you? How would you describe the music?

The musical excerpts are from databases that contain music to sleep with, to relax with and other purposes.

This is part of a PhD project being carried out in the Department of Music by Mr. Rory Kirk. Contact: rjdkirk1@sheffield.ac.uk.

The study has received ethics approval.
