    Music to the Inner Ears: Exploring Individual Differences in Musical Imagery.Roger E. Beaty, Chris J. Burgin, Emily C. Nusbaum, Thomas R. Kwapil, Donald A. Hodges & Paul J. Silvia - 2013 - Consciousness and Cognition 22 (4):1163-1173.
    In two studies, we explored the frequency and phenomenology of musical imagery. Study 1 used retrospective reports of musical imagery to assess the contribution of individual differences to imagery characteristics. Study 2 used an experience sampling design to assess the phenomenology of musical imagery over the course of one week in a sample of musicians and non-musicians. Both studies found episodes of musical imagery to be common and positive: people rarely wanted such experiences to end and often heard music that (...)

    Nuanced Aesthetic Emotions: Emotion Differentiation is Related to Knowledge of the Arts and Curiosity.Kirill Fayn, Paul J. Silvia, Yasemin Erbas, Niko Tiliopoulos & Peter Kuppens - 2017 - Cognition and Emotion 32 (3):593-599.
    The ability to distinguish between emotions is considered indicative of well-being, but does emotion differentiation in an aesthetic context also reflect deeper and more knowledgeable aesthetic experiences? Here we examine whether positive and negative ED in response to artistic stimuli reflects higher fluency in an aesthetic domain. Particularly, we test whether knowledge of the arts and curiosity are associated with more fine-grained positive and negative aesthetic experiences. A sample of 214 people rated their positive and negative feelings in response to (...)

    Aesthetic Meanings and Aesthetic Emotions: How Historical and Intentional Knowledge Expand Aesthetic Experience.Paul J. Silvia - 2013 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 36 (2):157-158.
    This comment proposes that Bullot & Reber's (B&R's) emphasis on historical and intentional knowledge expands the range of emotions that can be properly viewed as aesthetic states. Many feelings, such as anger, contempt, shame, confusion, and pride, come about through complex aesthetic meanings, which integrate conceptual knowledge, beliefs about the work and the artist's intentions, and the perceiver's goals and values.
