Master Class & Music Gesture Research in Oslo











For the past few days I have been in Oslo, Norway, collaborating with colleagues from NNIMIPA (Nordic Network for the Integration of Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics) on a research project at the University of Oslo. Our project is using a combination of state of the art motion capture (infrared) video analysis technologies and qualitative methods to examine musical gestures as well as interactions in the context of a master class event.

Here is a link to the NNIMIPA website, which offers more information regarding this group and its activities:
