Product description

Review

" This book is a veritable gateway to 21st-century technological advances in the analysis, creation, performance, and retrieval of music. Leman's overview of approaches to musical meaning and embodied cognition highlights ecological mediations between physical movements and their intentionality. Building on this theoretical foundation, he turns to his central focus: how humans interact musically with technology. Under the umbrella term 'mediation technology, ' he examines two active areas of research: the use of multimodal input to selectively retrieve music from digital storage, and the construction and use of interactive multimedia systems. In clear prose, Leman not only explains but exemplifies the mediation between scientific understanding and artistic concerns that is the guiding theme of his work." --Robert S. Hatten, Professor of Music Theory, Indiana University, and author of "Interpreting Musical Gestures, Topics, and Tropes: Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert"

" Leman simultaneously articulates a comprehensive and compelling theory of why music moves us and offers a vision of what the music information technology of the future will come to look like as it embodies the principles by which people interact with music." --Petr Janata, Center for Mind and Brain, University of California, Davis

" "Embodied Music Cognition" re-examines the foundations of musical experience using an ecological approach to perception in which the human body -- the need to act and interact with the environment via voice, hands, and motor systems -- becomes a primary component of musical perception and understanding. This bypasses the traditional mind/body duality which has relegated much of musical analysis to a linguistic exercise; simultaneously, it moves beyond a mere physical description of musical phenomena. Leman applies the ideas to the problem of designing flexible and intuitive musical instruments and to the young field of music information retrieval." --William A. Sethares, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Wisconsin
