    Melodic contour, the ‘shape’ of a melody, is a common way to visualize and remember a musical piece. The purpose of this paper is to explore the building blocks of a future ‘gesture-based’ melody retrieval system. We present ...
  • Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    Motiongrams are visual representations of human motion, generated from regular video recordings. This paper evaluates how different video features may influence the generated motiongram: inversion, colour, filtering, ...
  • Haugen, Mari Romarheim; Nymoen, Kristian (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2015)
    Recording music-related motions in ecological valid situa- tions can be challenging. We investigate the performance of three devices providing 3D acceleration data, namely Axivity AX3, iPhone 4s and a Wii controller tracking ...
