  • Nymoen, Kristian; Godøy, Rolf Inge; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Tørresen, Jim (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Links between music and body motion can be studied through experiments called sound-tracing. One of the main challenges in such research is to develop robust analysis techniques that are able to deal with the multidimensional ...
  • Nymoen, Kristian; Chandra, Arjun; Tørresen, Jim (Chapter / Bokkapittel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Synchronisation is an important part of collaborative music systems, and with such systems implemented on mobile devices, the implementation of algorithms for synchronisation without central control becomes increasingly ...
  • Godøy, Rolf Inge; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Voldsund, Arve; Glette, Kyrre Harald; Høvin, Mats Erling; Nymoen, Kristian; Skogstad, Ståle Andreas van Dorp; Tørresen, Jim (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    Our research on music-related actions is based on the conviction that sensations of both sound and body motion are inseparable in the production and perception of music. The expression "musicrelated actions" is here used ...

    In this paper we present the Dance Jockey System, a system developed for using a full body inertial motion capture suit (Xsens MVN) in music/dance performances. We present different strategies for extracting relevant ...
  • Nymoen, Kristian; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2009)
    The paper presents Nymophone2, an acoustic instrument with a complex relationship between performance actions and emergent sound. A method for describing the multidimensional control actions needed to play the instrument ...
  • Chandra, Arjun; Nymoen, Kristian; Voldsund, Arve; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Glette, Kyrre Harald; Tørresen, Jim (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    The paper presents the interactive music system SoloJam, which allows a group of participants with little or no musical training to effectively play together in a ``band-like'' setting. It allows the participants to take ...
  • Skogstad, Ståle Andreas van Dorp; Nymoen, Kristian; Høvin, Mats Erling; Holm, Sverre; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    In this paper we present some custom designed filters for real-time motion capture applications. Our target application is motion controllers, i.e. systems that interpret hand motion for musical interaction. In earlier ...
  • Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Glette, Kyrre Harald; Godøy, Rolf Inge; Høvin, Mats Erling; Nymoen, Kristian; Skogstad, Ståle Andreas van Dorp; Tørresen, Jim (Chapter / Bokkapittel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2010)
    The paper reports on the development and activities in the recently established fourMs lab (Music, Mind, Motion, Machines) at the University of Oslo, Norway. As a meeting place for researchers in music and informatics, the ...
  • Nymoen, Kristian; Song, Sichao; Hafting, Yngve; Tørresen, Jim (Chapter / Bokkapittel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    We present Funky Sole Music, a musical interface employing a sole embedded with three force sensitive resistors in combination with a novel algorithm for continuous movement classification. A heuristics-based music engine ...
  • Nymoen, Kristian (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2013)
    There are strong indications that musical sound and body motion are related. For instance, musical sound is often the result of body motion in the form of sound-producing actions, and muscial sound may lead to body motion ...
  • Skogstad, Ståle Andreas van Dorp; Nymoen, Kristian; de Quay, Yago; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2011)
    The paper presents research about implementing a full body inertial motion capture system, the Xsens MVN suit, for musical interaction. Three di erent approaches for streaming real time and prerecorded motion capture data ...
  • Nymoen, Kristian; Chandra, Arjun; Glette, Kyrre Harald; Tørresen, Jim; Voldsund, Arve; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2014)
    We consider the issue of how a flexible musical space can be manipulated by users of an active music system. The musical space is navigated within by selecting transitions between different sections of the space. We take ...
  • Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Skogstad, Ståle Andreas van Dorp; Nymoen, Kristian (Book / Bok / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2011)
