Feelings and emotions

Snippets that have shaped and are shaping how I reason about feelings, emotional experiences.

Music

Musical harmony is about injecting melody with emotion.

Language

Can't remember where I heard/read this quote:

Isn't it interesting how by varying the air pressure that is transmitted from one's vocal chords to another's eardrums, we can effectively trigger a range of emotional responses from the receiver?

Visual Arts

  • An artist captures emotions in a painting
  • That painting passes on those emotions to its viewer
  • An art buyer buys the painting and installs it in their living room so that they can re-experience those emotions for themselves at their own convenience.
