Current Research Activities

My main interest is in phenomenological approaches to music theory, meaning taking subjective impressions of musical sound as the point of departure, exploring the content of these subjective images of musical sound, and then correlating these images with the acoustic features of musical sound. I have thus previously been focusing mostly on mental images of musical sound, including work on Musical Imagery, but in the last decades also on exploring music-related body motion. This led me to directing the Musical Gestures Project (2004-2007) and the Sensing Music-Related Actions Project (2008-2012), as well as participating in several topically related European research projects, projects using various conceptual and technological tools to explore the relationships between sound and body motion in the experience of music. My involvement in these projects has resulted in a number of publications within this topical area, including a book edited with my Belgian colleague Marc Leman on musical gestures (Godøy and Leman 2010). This work is continued in the interdisciplinary fourMs Group that I have been directing at the University of Oslo since 2013.
