The communication of different emotions (Nine Rasas-shringara, hasya, karuna, roudra, bhaya, veera, Bhibatsya, advuta, shanta) in dance scenario has been studied with human response. The emotion mentioned above has been depicted with performance of dance in three forms, namely, Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi, and Tagore dance along with appropriate music samples. A large number of volunteers were involved in witnessing the dance and a questionnaire was filled up where for all presentation each emotion felt were recorded. Next, only music samples (used in dance) were used to fill up the same questionnaire by the same volunteers. The acoustical features of music samples were parametrized with linear and nonlinear parameters. A statistical analysis reveals that the music samples elicit kind of emotions differently and not in conformity with the emotion rendered by dance. This deviation is dependent on acoustical properties which were investigated with the help of rhythm and void and also using nonlinear techniques like Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (DFA). The association of music with dance is a subject of extreme importance to psychologists and neuro-scientists for whom the results of the present analysis will be useful.
