This study was conducted with 28 participants from 15 countries who work in 9 different professions. The participants had an age range of 21 to 64, with an average age of 37. The study was conducted fully remotely. The stated objective of the collaboration was to answer the question “How do our brains respond to interactive meetings & presentations?”. The content presented was either on “The Harmonic Series” or “Artificial Intelligence in Music” (AI). Participants were split into Groups 1-5 in order to counterbalance delivery order and control for order effects.
