The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of specially designed three-dimensional (3-D) animations in guiding novice listeners to heighten cognitive awareness of and deeper affective reactions to components of contemporary electronic spacemusic. So, the author composed a short three-movement piece of contemporary electronic spacemusic utilizing clear elements such as 3-D audio and filters using sound envelopes that could be represented by researcher designed 3-D abstract animations for the purpose of teaching novice listeners to understand more fully and appreciate contemporary electronic spacemusic. The research questions considered were: (1) Is there a statistically significant difference on affective responses toward contemporary electronic spacemusic between subjects who experience an audio-only presentation of contemporary electronic spacemusic and those who experience an audio with 3-D animation presentation of contemporary electronic spacemusic? (2) Is there a statistically significant difference on cognitive response scores toward contemporary electronic spacemusic between subjects who experience an audio-only presentation of contemporary electronic spacemusic and those who experience an audio with 3-D animation presentation of contemporary electronic spacemusic?
