Jens Madsen is a PhD Student at the Section for Cognitive Systems, Technical University of Denmark, supervized by Jan Larsen (DTU Compute). He has worked with analyzing emotions expressed in music, e.g., for use in recommendation system in music information retrieval.

Madsen claims the following scientific answers to why peple listen to music:

  1. regulate their emotional state
  2. self-awareness and finding identity
  3. social bonding/relatedness

Madsen has worked with a number of different features extracted from music: pitch, chroma (chromagram), mel, loudness, beat, tempo, ...

In his work emotions are modeling with the two-dimensional core affect model with valence and arousal.

For his PhD project he worked with 200 muscial excerpts presented to 14 participants rating valence and arousal on a 9 point likert scale. He also investigated the confidence effect, and let participants rate with absolute scale and relative scale. For predicting valence and arousal from musical features he used Gaussian processes.
