Forthcoming from Routledge:

The Routledge Companion to Embodied Music Interaction

Edited by Micheline Lesaffre, Pieter-Jan Maes, and Marc Leman

The Routledge Companion to Embodied Music Interaction

captures a new paradigm in the study of music cognition, as a wave of recent research focuses on the role of the human body in musical experiences. This volume brings together a broad collection of work that explores all aspects of this new approach to understanding how we interact with music.

With contributions from an interdisciplinary and international array of scholars, including both empirical and theoretical perspectives, the Companion explores topics including expressivity and gesture, social music interaction, sociological and anthropological approaches, health and music therapy, modeling and analysis, and the role of technology.

This book will be a vital resource for anyone seeking to understand human interaction with music from an embodied perspective.
