Aus der Reihe der deutschen Zukunftsgipfel über Nachhaltigkeitsthemen
Collaborative music performances over network and online music learning are just some examples of the new artistic and pedagogic approaches involving new technologies. However there is a latency issue using the web.
Music perception and musical interaction relies on time, musicians have the ability to cope and tolerate time delays (latency) to some extent avoiding a performance breakout. However it would be interesting to know which factors contribute to this process. It depends on the differences between musical instruments or is just a talent intrinsic to every musician?
A brief description of the designed method for testing musician’s skills to cope with latency as well as the different problems in measuring human abilities will be presented and discussed.
