Together with Dr. Kat Agres (NUS, Singapore) and Prof. Louis Bigo (University of Lille, France), I recently explored how harmonic structure influences altered states in uplifting trance music. "The Impact of Musical Structure on Enjoyment and Absorptive Listening States in Trance Music" is available as a chapter in Music and Consciousness II, a book published by Ruth Herbert, Eric Clarke and David Clarke.
Just published a new article with my PhD student Thao Ha Thi Phuong and Prof. Gemma Roig on 'Multimodal Deep Models for Predicting Affective Responses Evoked by Movies'. The paper will be published in the proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Computer Vision for Physiological Measurement as part of ICCV; and will be presented by Thao in Seoul, South Korea. Anybody interested can download the preprint article here (link coming soon!). The source code of our model is available on github.
