Anyone here knows about science that makes connections between musical preference (e.g. in loudness or BPM) and mood or mental state?

I have a feeling the more relaxed, calm and focussed I am, the calmer the music gets I want to listen to at that moment. If I feel restless or dissatisfied with myself, I tend to super agressive and loud music.

@irimi1 I used to want to experiment with this and crowds in the subway. Measure the pace of things with different music. Almost always there was this chaotic jazzy band playing at my stop during rush hour and I think it made everyone that much more rushy, what if they played slow calm piano?

@irimi1 I remember reading a study that BPM of music can influence heart rate.
