We are very excited to announce the launch of our website, in which we will blog about involuntary musical imagery, and our research here at the Royal Northern College of Music at Manchester.
In this project we are researching all matters relevant to involuntary musical imagery (the academic name for earworms, or INMI for short). Involuntary musical imagery is the experience of having music playing in one's head without the individual actually having recalled it. INMI may take a lot of forms: it may be playing in the back of your attention, it may be intrusive, it may be pleasant, it may be looping, or it may have other wonderful attributes that you will tell us all about. In any form or shape we would like to know about it, with as much detail as you would like to share.
Stay tuned for future posts.
