Abstract: Combining bodies of literature from music-film cognition and musician evaluation, this study aimed to expand the literature concerning audiovisual interactions to include the relationship between music and dance. Experiment one was designed to test the effect of varying dance affect (positive, negative, neutral) or no dance on the perception of music (positive, negative, neutral). Experiment two was identical to Experiment one, except it was designed to test the effect of varying music affect (positive, negative, neutral) or no music on the perception of dance (positive, negative, neutral). Through ratings of the stimulus-as-a-whole on a set of perceptual measures and an adjective selection task, both Experiment one and two revealed a significant interaction between music, dancing, and ratings. For the perceptual ratings on the music alone (Experiment one) and the dance alone (Experiment two), a significant three-way interaction did not emerge. Commentary on the methodology of the present study and ideas for future research are discussed.
