Arnie Cox Publishes Book on Musical Meaning
November 3, 2016
Arnie Cox, associate professor of music theory and aural skills, has published a book titled Music and Embodied Cognition: Listening, Moving, Feeling, and Thinking (Indiana University Press, October 2016).
Taking a cognitive approach to musical meaning, Cox explores embodied experiences of hearing music as those that move us both consciously and unconsciously. In a pioneering study that draws on neuroscience and music theory, Cox advances his theory of the “mimetic hypothesis,” the notion that a large part of our experience and understanding of music involves an embodied imitation in the listener of bodily motions and exertions that are involved in producing music. The book is available at http://www.iupress.indiana.edu.
