  • Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Doctoral thesis / Doktoravhandling, 2007)
    Body movement is integral to both performance and perception of music, and this dissertation suggests that we also think about music as movement. Based on ideas of embodied music cognition, it is argued that ecological ...
  • Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    The conceptual starting point for an `action-sound approach' to teaching music technology is the acknowledgment of the couplings that exist in acoustic instruments between sounding objects, sound-producing actions and the ...
  • Place, Timothy; Lossius, Trond; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Peters, Nils; Baltazar, Pascal (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2008)
    An approach for creating structured Open Sound Control (OSC) messages by separating the addressing of node values and node properties is suggested. This includes a method for querying values and properties. As a result, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Kelkar, Tejaswinee; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    In this paper, we report on a free-hand motion capture study in which 32 participants ‘traced’ 16 melodic vocal phrases with their hands in the air in two experimental conditions. Melodic contours are often thought of as ...
  • Gonzalez Sanchez, Victor Evaristo; Martin, Charles Patrick; Zelechowska, Agata; Bjerkestrand, Kari Anne Vadstensvik; Johnson, Victoria; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    This article describes the design and construction of a collection of digitally-controlled augmented acoustic guitars, and the use of these guitars in the installation \textit\{Sverm-Resonans\}. The installation was built ...
  • Godøy, Rolf Inge; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2009)
    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 ...
  • Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Koehly, Rodolphe; Wanderley, Marcelo M. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2006)
    This paper presents our work on building low-cost music controllers intended for educational and creative use. The main idea was to build an electronic music controller, including sensors and a sensor interface, on a "10 ...
  • Godøy, Rolf Inge; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Nymoen, Kristian (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2010)
    In our own and other research on music-related actions, findings suggest that perceived action and sound are broken down into a series of chunks in people’s minds when they perceive or imagine music. Chunks are here ...
  • 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 ...
  • Nymoen, Kristian; Voldsund, Arve; Skogstad, Ståle Andreas van Dorp; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Tørresen, Jim (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    The paper presents an analysis of the quality of motion data from an iPod Touch (4th gen.). Acceleration and orientation data derived from internal sensors of an iPod is compared to data from a high end optical infrared ...
  • Martin, Charles Patrick; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Tørresen, Jim (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    This paper describes the process of developing a standstill performance work using the Myo gesture control armband and the Bela embedded computing platform. The combination of Myo and Bela allows a portable and extensible ...
  • Gonzalez Sanchez, Victor Evaristo; Zelechowska, Agata; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    The relationships between human body motion and music have been the focus of several studies characterizing the correspondence between voluntary motion and various sound features. The study of involuntary movement to music, ...
  • de Quay, Yago; Skogstad, Ståle Andreas van Dorp; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2011)
    The authors present an experimental musical performance called Dance Jockey, wherein sounds are controlled by sensors on the dancer's body. These sensors manipulate music in real time by acquiring data about body actions ...
  • Skogstad, Ståle Andreas van Dorp; Nymoen, Kristian; de Quay, Yago; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    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 ...
  • Jensenius, Alexander Refsum; Godøy, Rolf Inge; Wanderley, Marcelo M. (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2005)
    We present the Musical Gestures Toolbox, a collection of Max/MSP/Jitter modules to help in qualitative and quantitative analysis of musical gestures. Examples are shown of how the toolbox is used for studying musical ...
  • Tørresen, Jim; Hauback, Øyvind N.; Overholt, Dan; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2012)
    We present a new wireless transceiver board for the CUI32 sensor interface, aimed at creating a solution that is flexible, reliable, and with little power consumption. Communication with the board is based on the ZigFlea ...
  • Nymoen, Kristian; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Chapter / Bokkapittel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2009)
