Musical Gestures: Sound, Movement And Meaning

Musical Gestures is a collection of essays addressing the fundamental issues of gesture research in relation to music. This includes different approaches to what musical gestures are about, analyses of the relationships between gestures and sound, the relationships between performance and perception of gestures, and their significance and use in cultural contexts. It takes an interdisciplinary approach to these issues, drawing on ideas, theories, and methods from disciplines such as musicology, music perception, human movement science, cognitive psychology, and computer science.
