Why music and heartbeat go well together
When melody and harmonies are faded out, the basic beat remains.
Without it, the beat, a piece of music would tend to appear contour less. Pieces with a fast basic beat are stimulating, slower songs seem sedate and calm. This has something to do with a very fundamental issue: namely, your own heartbeat. So you unconsciously associate this beat with calm. If the basic beat gets faster, you associate this with excitement, tension, energy, or movement, because the heartbeat also gets faster in joyful, eventful, or physically demanding situations.
The fact, strictly speaking, the fact that people bring the beat of a song in connection with the heartbeat is not actually active knowledge, but rather an unconscious, yet decisive reaction to what is heard. It means that everyone has their own emotional metronome built-in.
