Description: Fear is a frequently studied emotion category in music and emotion research. Yet little is known about how music conveys finer-grained fearful emotions such as terror and anxiety. We used emotion ratings from 99 participants to create a new ecologically valid database of horror film music excerpts that reliably convey terror and anxiety called FEARMUS. We also use descriptive and acoustic analyses to demonstrate the musical and acoustic differences between musically conveyed terror and anxiety. Our results further support the application of emotional granularity in music and emotion research.
