Week 2 wrap-up

A wrap-up of week 2 of Music Moves.

In this week’s wrap-up video, we have a special announcement: a team of researchers from the University of Oslo has won the Danish Radio’s “Happening of the Year” for the “research concert” MusicLab 7 Copenhagen which was held in October last year.

For that reason, Alexander has travelled to Copenhagen to receive the prize together with music philosopher Simon Høffding, a former postdoctoral fellow at UiO. Simon has been working with the world-leading Danish String Quartet (DSQ) for more than ten years. For MusicLab Copenhagen, this collaboration culminated in a full evening concert featuring motion capture and physiological measurements of both the musicians and audience. The aim is to understand more about relationships of mind and body in a real-world concert setting.

If you are interested in learning more about this event, you can watch a recording of the full concert or a 10-minute mini-documentary explaining the background of the project. Moreover, data from the concert will be uploaded to OSF as the research progresses.
