Preliminary evidence for reduced cortical activity in experienced guitarists during performance preparation for simple scale playing

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

 ABSTRACT: Research using neuroscientific techniques has shown that less cortical activity occurs in the brains of experienced musicians and athletes than in the brains of novices when they plan and prepare to perform a motor skill. We used electroencephalography to observe cortical activity in the brains of experienced and novice guitarists preparing to play a scale on the guitar. The results, presented in this research note, confirm the findings of previous research and suggest that the motor preparation of experts is more efficient than that of novices. Cortical activity in music students could therefore, if tracked longitudinally, provide an objective marker of musical skill learning and be used to inform music learning, teaching and assessment practices. 

KEY WORDS: Electroencephalography, movement-related cortical potential, motor skills, skill learning, guitar

The improvisatory approach to classical music performance: An empirical investigation into its characteristics and impact

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

IMPROVVISARE SEMPRE!

I ricercatori hanno scoperto che gli ascoltatori si interessano alla musica classica più quando i musicisti improvvisano.
Una collaborazione di ricercatori dell’Imperial College di Londra e la Guildhall School of Music and Drama ha esaminato i segnali elettrici nel cervello dei musicisti e ascoltatori. 
Anche se l’improvvisazione non è comunemente associata con la musica classica, il nuovo studio suggerisce che l’introduzione di elementi di improvvisazione in concerti di musica classica potrebbe aumentare il coinvolgimento del pubblico.
