These graphs report the time course of responses to this bassoon and harp duet over 24 listening sessions. Some report the general patterns of responses, other show how the listener’s responses changed over successive exposures.
These respiration phase plots show a few moments of extraordinary alignment with the music as a few instances, for example 45 s in, and also characteristic elongated respiratory period with the end of the piece. These details are most obvious in the top most plot, reporting change in chest circumference for each listening, row by row.
Plots of respiratory phase alignment with the stimulus, along with statistical assessments of these coincidences.
These responses were collected to Romance (Debussy) by Rachel Talitman and Luc Loubry from the album The Golden Age of Harp and French bassoon. The piece was not particularly familiar to the listener who is a bassoonist. Unfortunately, no version of this very sweet duet is available online from artist linked sources.

The continuous ratings of Felt Emotional Valence and Arousal, plotted three different ways. First as individual lines with the cross listening average, then layered per session with colour marking the scale values, and finally the activity-level times series reporting the proportion of listenings showing rating changes up or down per 2 s interval.
Summary of the three surface Electromyography recordings, Corrugator, Zygomaticus, and Upper Trapezius, across listenings to Stimulus 1. Plots 1, 3, and 5 layer the sessions, reporting normalised intensity of muscle activation by colour. Plots 2, 4, and 6 report activity levels on the proportion of listenings exceeding different thresholds of activation per half second.
Plots of Heart Rate and Respiration Rate measured during the 24 listenings. Plots 1 & 4: session by session, the estimated heart/respiration rate of the listener, reported in rows will colour marking rate. Plot 2 & 5: Proportions of sessions with heart/respiration rate exceeding various thresholds. Plot 3 & 6: Activity levels of heart/respiration rate increases, assessed for significant coincidence.
Plots of Skin Conductance and Finger Temperature measured during 24 listenings to Stimulus one. Plots 1 & 4: session by session, the normalised change values of skin conductance and finger temperature, reported in rows will colour marking direction. Plot 2 & 5: Proportions of sessions with exceeding various thresholds. Plot 3 & 6: Activity levels of increases, assessed for significant coincidence.
