Music and Emotion, Acoustics, Noise, Volume, and Tempo On the Human Psyche

Not long ago, I was at Starbucks discussing someone's recent move from Seattle, the lady in her 70s now noted she had finally overcome her depression thanks to living in sunny Southern California for about 15 months. We got to discussing how scientific studies had shown the increasing the brain's temperature even one-degree could cure depression. We also noted how some uplifting songs were the favorites of those who felt unhappy in life. Let's talk shall we?

There is a correlation which seems to be innate in primates (yes, you humans also, you are primates too) that faster tempo music and louder volumes induced a positive happy feeling to a point. This has been shown in psychological research. Both happiness and sadness could be induced in human beings through volume and tempo. Let me recommend a couple of references in case you are interested in learning more;

1.) YouTube Video titled; "Music and the Brain: From Mode to Emotion in Musical Communication," uploaded on July 27, 2009.

2.) Book; "Music and Manipulation: On the Social Uses and Social Control of Music," by Steven Brown, editor and Ulrik Volgsten, editor, Beghahn Book Publishers, New York, NY, 2006, 400 pages, ISBN: 978-184540984.

Now then, could it be that the vibrational energy of the cells is the reason. Higher volumes require more energy and that vibrational energy effects the cells to a greater degree, and more energy = more heat, which would also account for why there are more suicides and depression in climates with less heat, more overcast and rainy weather? This of course provided that the acoustics are correct and the noise is not burdensome on the senses, for instance listening to kids yelling and screaming inside a Chuck E. Cheese establishment.

Could it be that simple at least in part? Perhaps, is my conclusion and thus if we wish to solve depression maybe we should make hats warmer and have them come with fast tempo songs playing inside of them - yes, more wearable personal electronics, and no more depression.

Since, I was in Starbucks, it made me wonder if it was the caffeine, ambiance, music, and vibrational energy that everyone had come to enjoy and become addicted too, not just because caffeine provides an addictive force, but because the combination speeds up the central nervous system, brain, and brings cells to life, along with the acoustics, slight white noise background and music playing in the background. Looks like a winning combination, especially when you look at Starbucks profits. Please consider all this and think on it.
