          Um die alltägliche Musiknutzung zu erfassen, wurden bislang verschiedene Ansätze des Experience Sampling eingesetzt. Diese Methode wurde bereits in den 1980er Jahren entwickelt und vielfach in der Musik- und Mediennutzungsforschung eingesetzt. Dieser methodische Ansatz versucht es zu ermöglichen, dass Hörer im Alltag zu ihrem Konsum befragt werden können. Allerdings sind viele der Studien die auf Experience Sampling beruhen mit einigen Limitationen behaftet. Eine moderne und rezeptionsnahe Möglichkeit für die Messung alltäglicher Musiknutzung über internetfähige mobile Endgeräte mit einem Android Betriebssystem bietet die App MuPsych. Mithilfe dieses Programms können Nutzer direkt während der Musikrezeption oder zu weiteren bestimmten Zeitpunkten über ihr eigenes persönliches Endgerät befragt und ihr Musikkonsum fortlaufend erfasst werden. Der vorliegende Artikel stellt zunächst die Forschungstradition des Experience Sampling kurz dar, um dann auf die Funktionen, die die App MuPsych für diese Erhebungsmethode bietet einzugehen. Schließlich wird beschrieben wie die App nutzbar für eigene Forschungsvorhaben gemacht werden kann.

          Translated abstract

          Collecting data from everyday music consumption is a challenging task for research. A promising method that was introduced in the 1980s was the experience sampling method. With data provided from this method one could reconstruct the typical daily listening routines. However, experience sampling had some limitations like problems due to unhandy paper diaries, and the issue of the validity of self-reports about a retrospective course of the day. A modern method that can be used promptly when a music listening session starts is the application called MuPsych for Android smartphones. This app can provide surveys directly on the personal mobile device when the reception begins. Furthermore, the app itself can provide a pool of surveys that can be answered at every time during the use of the app. In this article, the history of the experience sampling method, followed by the possibilities that MuPsych provides are described.

          Development and validation of brief measures of positive and negative affect: The PANAS scales.

          In recent studies of the structure of affect, positive and negative affect have consistently emerged as two dominant and relatively independent dimensions. A number of mood scales have been created to measure these factors; however, many existing measures are inadequate, showing low reliability or poor convergent or discriminant validity. To fill the need for reliable and valid Positive Affect and Negative Affect scales that are also brief and easy to administer, we developed two 10-item mood scales that comprise the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS). The scales are shown to be highly internally consistent, largely uncorrelated, and stable at appropriate levels over a 2-month time period. Normative data and factorial and external evidence of convergent and discriminant validity for the scales are also presented.

              An experience sampling study of emotional reactions to music: listener, music, and situation.

              The Experience Sampling Method was used to explore emotions to music as they naturally occurred in everyday life, with a focus on the prevalence of different musical emotions and how such emotions are related to various factors in the listener, the music, and the situation. Thirty-two college students, 20 to 31 years old, carried a palmtop that emitted a sound signal seven times per day at random intervals for 2 weeks. When signaled, participants were required to complete a questionnaire on the palmtop. Results showed that music occurred in 37% of the episodes, and in 64% of the music episodes, the participants reported that the music affected how they felt. Comparisons showed that happiness-elation and nostalgia-longing were more frequent in episodes with musical emotions, whereas anger-irritation, boredom-indifference, and anxiety-fear were more frequent in episodes with nonmusical emotions. The prevalence of specific musical emotions correlated with personality measures and also varied depending on the situation (e.g., current activity, other people present), thus highlighting the need to use representative samples of situations to obtain valid estimates of prevalence.
