We Engage with Familiar Music
When Maria listened to her first classical concert her skin conductance remained relatively low. However, when “The Main Thee of Romeo and Juliet” played, her arousal spiked. She placed her hands to her heart, describing how emotional that song was for her. One of the reasons the song was so emotional for her was that she had heard the song many times before. This is why I love going to the John Williams and video game music concerts so much.
