Abstract
Research in the field of embodied music cognition has shown the importance of coupled processes of body activity (action) and multimodal percepts of these actions (perception) in how music is processed. Technologies in the field of human- computer interaction (HCI) provide excellent means to intervene into, and extend these coupled action-perception processes. In this article we apply this model to a concrete HCI application, called the “Conducting Master”. The application facilitates multiple users to interact in real time with the system through conducting gestures, made in synchrony with the musical meter (i.e., beating-time gestures). Techniques are provided to model and automatically recognize these gestures in order to provide multimodal feedback streams back to the users. These techniques are based on template-based methods that allow approaching beating-time gestures explicitly from a spatiotem- poral account. To conclude, we present some concrete setups in which the functionality of the Conducting Master was evaluated.
