THE MUSICAL GESTURES PROJECT
“The primary objective of the Musical Gestures project is to work towards a coherent theory of the relationship between musical sound, human gestures and musical concepts, and there are some secondary objectives linked to this:
Refine techniques for capturing, processing, and representing music-related gestural information. Classifying music-related gestures and develop useful overviews of gesture types within different contexts and styles. Understanding gestural coding of music by exploring the links between sonorous and gestural images in musical memory and imagery. Demonstrate practical applications of musical gestures as tools in performance, improvisation, composition, and music education”.
