Abstract:

This paper details an emotional music synthesis (EMS) system which is designed around music theory parameters and previous research on music and emotion. This system uses a rule-based algorithm to generate the music from scratch. Results of a user study on this system show that listener ratings of emotional valence and arousal correlate with intended production of musical valence and arousal.
