Leverhulme Lecture: Social-Cognitive Foundations of Interpersonal Coordination in Musical Ensembles
Musical ensemble performance is a social art form in which multiple individuals coordinate their actions in order to communicate aesthetic goals. Achieving these goals requires specialized cognitive-motor ensemble skills that facilitate precise yet flexible interpersonal coordination in real time.
This lecture will address the influence of social-psychological factors, including aspects of personality, upon the operation of these cognitive-motor ensemble skills.
The Music Department is delighted to announce the arrival of Peter Keller as Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professor. Professor Keller will be in Durham for 3 months from the middle of April, working with Professor Martin Clayton and other colleagues on collaborative research into the topic of musical entrainment (coordination in group music making). During this time Prof. Keller will also be giving two public ‘Leverhulme Lectures’, presented in collaboration with the Institute of Advanced Study. For more detail, please contact Martin Clayton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
