During stay-at-home orders in response to COVID-19, individuals had to deal with both health-related fear and anxiety and the difficulties related to social distancing and isolation. The present study, conducted in Israel shortly after the first lockdown was lifted, at the end of May 2020, examined individuals’ subjective evaluation of differences in their music listening habits and emotional reaction to music compared with normal times. A total of 200 participants filled an online questionnaire focusing on three issues: (1) changes in amount and situations of music listening. These included reference to new music clip types recently created and directly related to COVID-19 and its effects (Corona Clips); (2) changes in intensity of emotions experienced in reaction to music; and (3) changes in general emotions. For most participants music listening and uses remained similar or increased. Both emotional reaction to music general negative and socially related emotions were stronger than under normal circumstances. Music uses and emotion scales were correlated with socially related emotions. The results support previous findings regarding the use of music for mood regulation and the importance of music as a means for social contact and provide a demonstration of subjective evaluation of these functions in real-time coping during a global crisis.
在响应COVID-19的全屋服务命令期间，个人必须应对与健康相关的恐惧和焦虑，以及与社会疏远和孤立有关的困难。这项研究是在第一次禁闭解除后不久在以色列进行的，这项研究是在2020年5月结束的，调查了个人对他们的音乐聆听习惯和对音乐的情感反应与正常时间相比的差异的主观评估。共有200名参与者填写了一个在线调查表，重点关注以下三个问题：（1）音乐收听量和状况的变化。这些内容包括对最近创建的新音乐剪辑类型的引用，这些类型与COVID-19及其效果有直接关系（Corona Clips）; （2）对音乐的反应中情绪变化的强度；（3）一般情绪的变化。对于大多数参与者而言，音乐的聆听和使用仍然相似或有所增加。对音乐的普遍消极情绪和与社交有关的情绪的情绪反应都比正常情况下强。音乐使用和情感等级与社交相关的情感相关。这些结果支持了以前关于使用音乐进行情绪调节以及将音乐作为一种社交手段的重要性的发现，并证明了在全球危机期间实时应对这些功能的主观评估。
