Postdoc Project

My postdoc project investigates rhythm in Scandinavian folk music, with a special focus on music styles with an intimate relationship with dance and that are in non-isochronous meter–that is, the intervals between beats in the measure are of uneven duration. The project’s theoretical point of departure is that the experience of musical rhythm includes the interaction between perceived sonic rhythms and underlying reference structures, such as meter. The project further investigates whether musical meter may not only include points in time, or the duration between points, but also trajectories between the points–that is, metrical shape, and that this metrical shape might correspond to dancers’ periodic body motion. The project also seeks a better understanding of the role of performers’ and perceivers’ music-cultural background in production and perception of rhythm in these music styles.
