I guess it's good to learn something new every day. This morning, a client mentioned "stripper music".  Not my area of expertise but I curious so I asked for a sample. He sent me this:

Jeez, it does affect the heart rate, right away.

I'm becoming quite interested in emotional and mental manipulation techniques... seeing as we're drowning in them.

Know anything about this?

Sorry, not the insight you were probably asking for Elsa, but this sounds like running music to me, not even remotely erotic. Trance does affect people viscerally and emotionally, but its usually used as a happiness spreading music, not for 'manipulation', unless you deem cartoons to be mental manipulation too? 😀 Besides, the effect is very temporary.

Nope, don't know anything about this, but it's very nerve-racking music.

If the strippers you're mentionning are he ladies who take off their clothes, I can't imagine them doing it to that rhythm!

(I have a sudden vision of the same activity with Baroque. Then again, there are very jumpy tunes in that category...)

Concerning manipulation, yes, it's everywhere! I don't know if muzac etc. can be considered manipulative (it's supposed to sooth?), but you sure can drive people with other sorts of sounds/music. Military marches, drums etc. been around for a long time.

Stores often play slower-paced music to make people slow down and buy more. I know in one place they tried to drive away a crowd of goth kids who hung out on steps by playing classical music (didn't work). There have been more successful music playing efforts to keep teens from gathering places. Anyway I'd be concerned with public spaces playing music rather than the music itself.

That sounds like trance music from the late 90's. That stuff make me nauseous. 

Did you know your heart rate will speed up to match the tempo of dance music? That's why I have to be careful about listening to anything faster then, say, 120 bpm for an extended period of time--even though I love it! A lot of dance music is set to 120-130. Faster songs, 140-145. My heart rate gets up to the 130's just running errands on a hot day. It's not comfortable at all!

@elsa Haha! Literally 90% music produced today is like that, and again, not erotic. Makes me think of school PT hours. 😂 I think millennials are immune. 😀 The cool kids have moved on to earthy, guttral music...often tagged 'World'.
