 +**Musical narratives in nonverbal human communication**
 +‘Musical phrasing’ and voice qualities in speech, being expressed in communication between two persons, is in this project interpreted as an exchange and development of a co-created, shared narrative, where musicality and voice qualities in speech develops according to the emotions of the persons communicating. In the perspective of understanding social bonding and coordination of emotions, a musical narrative in communication can be analyzed and interpreted for further understanding of intersubjectivity and nonverbal expressions in human communication. 
 +A number of methods for determining the structures in ‘musical phrasing’ in speech and voice qualities that represent communicative human narratives (expressed by musicality in speech and via voice qualities), will be investigated. This will include subjective listening tests, listening tests performed by a listening panel (able to hear variations in attributes such as melody, pitch, tempo, accentuations etc.), as well as analysis via technology/software, according to listed attributes. We investigate which musical patterns in speech, which variations of voice qualities, and what kind of exchange of these attributes that will enhance emotional expressiveness and social binding
 +The project will seek to develop a “Voice-/ConversationAnalysis” - VCA, which can specify and measure a number of sound- and speech qualities/attributes, which can function as a reference and guide, for people who communicate with others in their professional life, as far as which ‘musical phrasings’ and voice qualities in their speech will be likely to stimulate a communicative narrative, that will stimulate social bonding and coordinated emotional expressiveness.
 +The results of the test, VCA, will function as a basis for better understanding of speech patterns and voice qualities when designing corporate training programs for employees.
 +Perspectives of learning processes will be investigated to gain further understanding of how professional communicators learn, adjust and implement musical structures and variations of voice qualities in their communication with others.
 +‘Musical phrasing’ will be described in musical terms and voice qualities will be defined as acoustic phenomena, outlined in a list of attributes.
