The Clarinet Gestural Analysis project, based in the Music Technology Area, Schulich School of Music, McGill University is investigating the correlation between physical and musical gestures.
The research has a specific focus on expressive movements (also called ancillary or non-obvious gestures), movements that do not have a direct link to the generation of sound, but are an integral part of the performance.
The Musical Gestures Project, University of Oslo, Department of Musicology, is a broadly conceived research project on music-related gestures, based on the conviction that there are intimate links between music, understood as sonic art, and gestures, understood as human bodily movement.
