The application of motion capture technologies (MOCAP) has changed the way we study the musical movement in many ways. Most approaches have opted to reproduce the experimental laboratory configurations inherited from the sciences and use the full breadth of accuracy available in different technologies. However, advances in cognitive science showed that real environments are part of cognition, the mind downloads cognitive work to context and that behavior of human movement extremely variable. Therefore, our search for numerical precision and the isolation of variables interrupts the validity of observations by creating an artificial object of study, precise and invariable, that never really existed in the real world. How to deal with the variability and diversity of manifestations of the musical movement in the environment?
A great time with my friends in La Plata.
