Lärarkommitten består av Ninni Carlsund och Yngve Sundblad
Docent lecture in which it is described how research in expressive music performance can provide results in fields beyond the traditional borders of music acoustics.
Music making and playing is a universal activity. Understanding the mechanisms behind expressive communication in music performance can help in understanding expressive communication between humans in general, and in designing human-machine interaction which is based on affective communication.
In this seminar I will present how research in music performance has evolved in recent years, and how it has provided results which can be useful in other research fields. I will do this from the perspective of ten research projects in which I have been involved since 2001. Among other results, I will present methods for displaying emotional expression, and methods for sonification of events in human-machine interaction.
