Michael Kubovy and Judith Shatin, both from the University of Virginia, discuss "The Mind of the Artist."

Kubovy and Shatin discuss evidence that music does indeed have a semantic element, and offer examples of how composers embody extra-musical elements in their compositions.
Michael Kubovy is a cognitive psychologist who studies visual and auditory perception.
Judith Shatin is a composer who explores music's expressive meaning.
