How do you solve a problem like Isolde?

Got a spare 15 minutes? Would you like to take part in a national, online survey about how people listen to music? The mission of Feeling Sound Musiclab is to test how we perceive music – and also to gauge the nation’s favourite chord – the result of which will be used to commission a new piece of music.

Why not read about the project, about the staff involved or take the test?

  1. Oh dear – I sent this to the rest of my family ages 15 – 82, and they are suddenly fiercely competitive! 100%s are being boasted all over the place and hot arguments about whether it is easier to remember a note or a chord…all very good for the brain!
    Thanks for the link.

    I’m glad they’re all having fun. I’d imagine that it’s easier to retain a chord as it has pitch (the top note registers with most people) and also the colour conferred upon it by the other notes in the chord.
