Food & Paper: Micro level synchronisation to musical sounds (Danielsen)
In this talk, Anne Danielsen will present results from a comparative study with expert musicians from three different musical genres.
Musical synchronization may be achieved with greater or lesser precision. Previous research has shown that acoustic factors systematically influence where a musician places one sound in relation to another in order to hear them as perfectly synchronized. However, it remains unclear how synchrony is affected by musical enculturation. In this talk, Anne Danielsen will present results from a comparative study where expert musicians and producers from jazz, folk music, and EDM/hip-hop did click alignment and tapping to different musical and quasi-musical sounds.
Anne Danielsen is professor of Musicology and Director of RITMO. The focus of her current research in the TIME project is interaction between sonic and temporal features at the micro level of rhythm and groove.
