Music research aims at developing a research space that, in a proactive sense, can support the development of creative and cultural industries. In that context, we argue that a focus on users and their experiences in using tools may become more important in music research. It implies an expansion of the traditional methods of music psychology with methods that can address relevant features of musical action and musical tool use. This paper discusses epistemological and methodological issues… 
Music Perception as Embodied Cognition: Behavioral Evidence of Auditory Cue Effect
In this study, embodied effects of music perception were investigated and tested. Throughout the history of music cognition, recent emerging of embodied music cognition has showed significant
From Eco to the mirror neurons: Founding a systematic perspective of the reflexive interaction paradigm
The MIROR Project (EC project, FP7-ICT) deals with the development of an innovative adaptive system for children' music improvisation, composition and body performance, based on the reflexive
An embodied music cognition approach to multilevel interactive sonification
TLDR
A new conceptual framework and related implementation for interactive sonification is introduced, which is possible to investigate new approaches for structuring and to interactively explore multivariable data through sound.
The Music Paint Machine: Stimulating Self-monitoring Through the Generation of Creative Visual Output Using a Technology-enhanced Learning Tool
TLDR
Results suggest that the Music Paint Machine has the potential to evoke a flow experience and participants acknowledged its didactic relevance with regard to learning to improvise, to developing understanding of musical parameters and to stimulating creativity.
Connections between Music and Spatial Behaviors: Focusing on Embodied Cognitive Perspectives
This study investigated the connection between music cognition and spatial cognition based on embodied cognitive perspectives. Based on several empirical and theoretical evidences, this study
Shifting the paradigm of music instruction: implications of embodiment stemming from an augmented reality guitar learning system
TLDR
The Fretlight® condition consistently led to significantly better outcomes via interactive effects, including significantly better long term retention for the learned information across a 2 week time interval.
Observing Flow in Child/Music Machine Interaction
The aim of this extended abstract is to introduce a grid created with the software The Observer XT10.5 (Noldus Information Technology) to observe and analyze the state of Flow (Csikzsentmihalyi [6])
Investigating Embodied Music Cognition for Health and Well-Being
The aim of this chapter is to highlight challenges involved in the successful deployment of the rather young paradigm of embodied music cognition in the comprehensive domain of health and well-being.
Gesture-controlled musical performance: from movement awareness to mastery
ABSTRACT Technical advances in movement sensing and processing offer musicians greater scope to perform in ways that reflect their individual body signature. However, there is currently an asymmetry

An ethnographic study of music information seeking: implications for the design of a music digital library
TLDR
An ethnographic study of the searching/browsing techniques employed by people in the researchers' local communities, as they use two common sources of music: the public library and music stores is conducted.
How potential users of music search and retrieval systems describe the semantic quality of music
TLDR
The results from this study suggest that gender, age, musical expertise, active musicianship, broadness of taste and familiarity with the music have an influence on the semantic description of music.
Where the Action Is - The Foundations of Embodied Interaction
TLDR
This book addresses the philosophical bases of human-computer interaction and looks in particular at how tangible and social approaches to interaction are related, how they can be used to analyze and understand embodied interaction, and how they could affect the design of future interactive systems.
