TIME Autumn 2017 Seminar: Timing and sound in groove performance

The aim of this second TIME seminar is to discuss research on microtiming and sound, and in particular the ways in which features of sound and timing interact in groove performance and production.

Through presentations of research from different music genres and cultures we seek to shed light also on how microrhythmic relationships vary from one musical tradition to another. The focus will be on musical analysis, aesthetics, qualitative interviews and observation studies. 


Please register for the seminar by Monday October 9th here.

The seminar is open to all students and staff.
