Musical Gestures: concepts and methods in research
In the last decade, cognitive science underwent a change of paradigm by bringing human movement into the focus of research. Concepts such as ‘embodiment’ and ‘enactive’ have been proposed as core
Action-sound : developing methods and tools to study music-related body movement
TLDR
A taxonomy of music-related body movements is presented, before various observation studies of perceiver’s music-movement correspondences are presented, showing that both novices and experts alike seem to associate various types of body movement with features in the musical sound.
Early prediction of cerebral palsy by computer‐based video analysis of general movements: a feasibility study
