I saw a presentation by a neuroscience professor who studies the neuroscience of music (don't remember the name or the venue now) and his (speculative) suggestion was that music was about expectation. Often, when our expectations are met in a timely manner, we are satisfied.
Does the expectation factor explain why certain piece of music has a tendency to 'grow' on one ?
Often one hears a piece of music and it doesn't quite impress one. But on repeated hearings one tends to enjoy it.
