ISMIR 2009 - Proceedings of the 10th International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference. 2009, 45-50
We can see many and strong links between music and human body movement in musical performance, in dance, and in the variety of movements that people make in listening situations. There is evidence that sensations of human body movement are integral to music as such, and that sensations of movement are efﬁcient carriers of information about style, genre, expression, and emotions. The challenge now in MIR is to develop means for the extraction and representation of movement-inducing cues from musical sound, as well as to develop possibilities for using body movement as input to search and navigation interfaces in MIR. contexts.
