ECG and EEG Decoding of Music Amplitude in Baroque and Contemporary Classical Music

Emily Graber presents a poster on decoding music amplitude from EEG, ECG, and EEG+ECG of the audio signal in Baroque (Glenn Gould playing Bach’s Goldberg Variations) vs. Contemporary Classical Music (Alesandros Markeas improvising) at the 17th International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition (ICMPC).

Amplitude decoding was significantly above noise floor for EEG, EEG+RR, RR for Baroque music, and only EEG+RR for Contemporary Classical Music.

EEG+RR performed best, and RR significantly boosts EEG decoding. For Baroque music, RR performed almost as well as EEG+RR.

This work was part of Emily’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship in collaboration with ERC projects Cosmos, HeartFM. Since September, Emily is an assistant professor in Computer and Information Science at Allegheny College.
