A groundbreaking look into the connections between music, dance, emotion, and trance Claims that persons who experience deep emotions when listening to music are akin to those who trance within the context of religious rituals In Deep Listeners, Judith Becker brings together scientific and cultural approaches to the study of music and emotion, and music and trancing.

Becker claims that persons who experience deep emotions when listening to music are akin to those who trance within the context of religious rituals.

Using new discoveries in the fields of neuroscience and biology, Deep Listeners outlines an emotion-based theory of trance using examples from Southeast Asian and American musics.

A companion CD includes excerpts from several of the musical genres under discussion.
