Sensing Music-related Actions

The web page for our new research project called Sensing Music-related Actions is now up and running. This is a joint research project of the departments of Musicology and Informatics, and has received external funding through the VERDIKT program of the The Research Council of Norway. The project runs from July 2008 until July 2011.

The focus of the project will be on basic issues of sensing and analysing music-related actions, and creating various prototypes for testing the control possibilities of such actions in enactive devices.

We are organising a kickoff-seminar on Tuesday 6 May with the following program:

  • 10:15-10:30: Rolf Inge Godøy (UiO): The Sensing Music-related Actions project
  • 10:30-11:30: Marcelo M. Wanderley (McGill): Motion capture of music-related actions
  • 11:30-12:30: Ben Knapp (Queens, Belfast): Biosensing of music-related actions
  • 13:30-17:00: Workshop with various biosensors and motion capture equipment

Thus we will be able to discuss music-related actions both from an “internal” (i.e. biosignals) and “external” (i.e. movement) point of view. Please come by if you are in Oslo!
