The Effects of Repetition on Liking for Music.
Hargreaves, David J.
Journal of Research in Music Education, v32 n1 p35-47 Spr 1984
Study results supported the inverted-U subjective complexity hypothesis, which says that liking for a piece of music is at its maximum at an optimum intermediate level of subjective complexity. Subjective complexity is a function of the objective characteristics of the piece and the musical experience and sophistication of the listener. (RM)
