Product description

Review

Marguliss is a wide-ranging study that engages with musical repetition in both its production and reception through experimental studies that she and others have conducted, through reflections on the cognitive capacities of humans (including the neurophysiological substrates of such capacities), and through a consideration of some of the roles music plays in cultural and social interactions (Lawrence M. Zbikowski, Music Theory Spectrum)

a signal musical and intellectual achievement. (Jonathan Dunsby, Music and Letters)

The engaging, entertaining style of On Repeat makes it a pleasure to read ... an important contribution to the field of music cognition, and should be of interest to scholars throughout the field. (Music Perception)

Margulis tells a compelling story about how we process the world and construct our musical discourses ... On Repeat is an exciting new examination of a very old subject. It is eminently readable and intriguing, having much to offer the academic musician, the experimental psychologist, or the interested lay reader. The book represents a significant advance in our understanding of the deep questions behind the variegated phenomena of musical repetition. (Music Theory Online)

About the Author

Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis directs the Music Cognition Lab at the University of Arkansas. Her research uses theoretical, behavioral, and neuroimaging methodologies to investigate the dynamic, moment-to-moment experience of listeners without special musical training. She was also trained as a concert pianist.
