Timing and Sound in Musical Microrhythm (TIME)

When does a beat actually happen in time? What part of the beat’s sound constitutes its temporal position, and how does this perception or judgment depend upon a listener’s music-cultural background?

About the project

The project Timing and Sound in Musical Microrhythm (TIME) will conduct comparative investigations of four different rhythmic genres – jazz, electronic dance music, R&B/hip-hop and Scandinavian fiddle music – in order to gain new insights into the relationship between temporal and sound-related aspects of musical perception and performance.

Objectives

The aim of the project is to understand the micro level of auditory perception and the role of cultural background and/or training in music in this regard.
