We are happy to announce the publication of our new book: 

Rolf Inge Godøy and Marc Leman (2009). Musical Gestures: Sound, Movement, and Meaning. New York: Routledge.

Summary: We experience and understand the world, including music, through body movement–when we hear something, we are able to make sense of it by relating it to our body movements, or form an image in our minds of body movements. Musical Gestures is a collection of essays that explore the relationship between sound and movement. It takes an interdisciplinary approach to the fundamental issues of this subject, drawing on ideas, theories and methods from disciplines such as musicology, music perception, human movement science, cognitive psychology, and computer science.

Postdoctoral researcher Alexander Refsum Jensenius will hold an open lecture during the annual "Faglig-pedagogisk dag" at University of Oslo.

Tittel: Musikk og bevegelse

Sammendrag: Musikk oppstår som bevegelse hos musikeren, og musikk skaper bevegelse hos den som lytter. Selv om de fleste er enige om at kropp og bevegelse er en naturlig, og essensiell, del av musikkopplevelsen, har det vært påfallende lite fokus på musikkrelaterte bevegelser i undervisning og forskning. Forelesningen vil gi en helhetlig presentasjon av hvordan vi kan forstå og studere musikkrelaterte bevegelser.
