The analysis of music based on heart rate variability
readings. Four concert experimental series on the subject of The Impact of Music with cellist
Friedrich Kleinhapl and his duo partner Andreas Woyke present a rollercoaster
ride between a variety of emotions with music by Beethoven, Anton Webern and
Using readings of heart rate variability taken during the
concerts we want to try and find out whether the same music has a varied impact
on different age groups. The readings
will be carried out and evaluated by coach Klaus Landauf (Graz Süd-West General
Hospital) with 30 pupils in each concert.
Students on the music education course at the Anton Bruckner Private
University Linz specially modify a presentation for taking account of the
experimental nature of these concerts which promise to be a special experience.
Impact of Music
Does music have a different effect on different age
groups? How can new concert formats be
devised irrespective of the age of listeners?
The symposium organized by the Salzburg Mozarteum
Foundation on the subject Music and its
Impact will focus on such questions.
Besides keynote speeches and discussion panels on the two previous days,
four concerts with simultaneous heart rate variability readings will be
offered, so as to analyse the impact of music on various target groups, and the
resulting consequences will be a subject of discussion for new concert
formats. In the context of the symposium
the currently recorded readings will be presented, analysed and evaluated by
Klaus Landauf and Friedrich Kleinhapl, and discussed with symposium
participants. The symposium aims to
appeal to theoreticians and practitioners from the sphere of music education,
neuro-science, people who evolve and organize concerts for children and young
persons, representatives from schools as well as people who are generally
Cellist Friedrich Kleinhapl, pharmacist Heidrun Maya Hagn-Kleinhapl
and the mental coach Klaus Landauf have been interested for many years in the
subject Music and its Physiological and
Emotional Impact on the Human Being.
Since 2005 they have jointly carried out tests and readings. One of the most convincing analytical
procedures has proved to be the heart rate variability reading.
