SINGING IN THE MIND – We finished the data collection for our new study and want to thank all the wonderful musicians that came and sung in and outside their minds for us!
Have a look on how the task was done and what the setup looked like in the video with one of our singers.

Zusammen in der Musik?

After the second lockdown we are now back in the lab and continue our study.

Perceptual Study

After the second lockdown we are now back in the lab and continue our study.

This pilot investigated interpersonal interactions between musicians during piano-singing duo performances. We recorded audio, heart rate, gaze, and body motion simultaneously during music performances. The purpose of the pilot was to test a new method and recording set-up for examining behavioural and physiological markers of togetherness in an ecologically valid setting.
