Hi Guys, I am currently in my final year at University of Essex studying a BA (Hons) in Music Production. As part of my Dissertation I am looking to discover if it may or may not be possible to differentiate Programmatic Music (music to tell a story) and general Romantic Music.

It would be much appreciated if you could spare 10 minutes of your time to fill out this questionnaire for me.

And yes, I am a Southend United fan :clap:

Thanks

Here there everywhere
It's an interesting theory but don;t all composers have a story to tell from their work ?
And the symbolisum would come to teh listener (if not prompted by a 3rd party ) based on culture, knowledge and experience ??

Completely disagree.

I defy anyone, of any culture to listen to the Rocky theme and not want to go out and give someone a kicking.
