-The aim of the proposed project is to deepen our understanding about the role of body and brain in music perception. It investigates how musical features are embodied and processed in the brain, and how this is affected by listener characteristics. It also investigates the connection between embodiments of music and neural processing of music. The research is highly interdisciplinary, combining methods of musicology, experimental psychology, movement science, neuroscience, signal processing, and machine learning.
The project will uncover mechanisms involved in embodied and cerebral processing of music, in particular regarding the role of the motor system in music perception and appreciation. Moreover, it increases our knowledge about perception and cognition in general, in particular regarding the relationship between the processing of music and language. The obtained knowledge has applications in music therapy, music education, and music performance.
