Empirical Analysis of Music Performance

Departing from musical content/information retrieved from performed music (sound and movement), it establishes a musicological approach that incorporates aspects pertinent to human perception and cognition. The methodology seeks support on knowledge such as computational modelling, statistical analysis and digital signal processing, that adds to traditional musicology skills.

Topics of interest:

  • systematic musicology
  • musical gesture
  • acoustic descriptors
  • musical expressiveness
  • musical individuality
  • empirical analysis of musical performance
