This week you will learn more about the importance of multimodality in human perception in the theory track.

The terminology track will focus on the motion of performers that do not produce sound: sound-modifying and sound-accompanying actions, as well as communicative movements and gestures.

Finally, in the methods track we will take a closer look at “motion capture” systems. Remember to use the dictionary.

We wrap up together on Friday afternoon, so don’t forget to check that out! As usual, if you have any questions or comments that you want included in the video, just ask in the comments.
