Oxford Seminar in the Psychology of Music: Alexander Refsum Jensenius (University of Oslo and RITMO)

Attend in person or join remotely via the Zoom link on our website

Throughout 2023, I have been standing still for ten minutes around noon every day, in a different room each day. This project follows a decade-long exploration of human micromotion from both artistic and scientific perspectives. In the talk, I will present results from the annual Norwegian Championships of Standstill, where we have studied the influence of music on people’s micromotion. I will also talk about how micromotion can be used in interactive music systems, allowing for the conscious and unconscious control of musical sounds.
