Detecting Audio-Video Tempo Discrepancies between Conductor and Orchestra

Abstract

Tempo perception has been studied using many different methodologies in trying to isolate the motion patterns of a conductor in experimental stimuli. In doing so, the context of conducting has been ignored including secondary bodily motion, expression and communication from the conductor, and conducting gestures outside of the realm of tempo control. The aim of this study is to test the ability of trained musicians to detect tempo discrepancies between a conductor and an orchestra using natural footage of a conductor from a musician’s perspective under manipulated experimental conditions.
