How Can Musical Touch Enhance a Live Performance?

Musical Touch Enhance a Live Performance

The haptic cues that instruments provide to musicians involve a complex interplay of forces and vibrations at the instrument and radiated sound. These vibrations can stimulate the surface of the human body as well. For music listeners this can also influence the perception of a musical performance. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of vibration on a live performance experience. We tested the addition of a vibratory system to a concert hall and compared this with the experience in a standard concert venue without the vibrational component. The results indicate that the presence of an additional vibratory system enhances a concert experience in a way that is different from the experience with a standard audio reproduction system.

Achieving flow whilst practicing or performing can be difficult and requires a great deal of focus to keep oneself immersed. A lot of the focus is often spent analyzing, judging, worrying about how other people think of you or if you are making mistakes, but to get in the zone and really feel what you’re doing it’s important to learn to tune out all of that and just focus on the immediate sensory and expressive elements of the task at hand.

Musical Touch brings this feeling of total immersion into a sensory experience, giving you the ability to control the visuals and sounds through simple physical interaction. This can be done in a range of ways, from billowing AR projections that sync up with the beat of the music to whole virtual worlds that let audiences join their favorite bands on stage.

Musical Touch aims to explore the dynamic and interlinking relationship between the tactile and aural aspects of piano playing. Scientific studies reveal that the act of piano playing involves tactility beyond the pianist’s dexterous hands. Furthermore, cultural histories indicate that the piano is a performative site for middle class female sexual desire. In particular, Victorian female amateur pianism figured as an efficacious seduction apparatus for the romantic suitor.

The combination of these aspects enables us to rethink the concept of music and its perception as a tactilely oriented sensation. We argue that the tactually oriented experience of piano playing demonstrates the generative potential of a synesthesia that consists of a holistic perception of acoustic, visual and somatic phenomena. This re-thinking of the meaning and function of musical sounds is relevant to our understanding of the acoustic nature of touch as well as its implication for our experiences with acoustic art forms such as classical music. It also reveals the profound implications of a new kind of sonic architecture for future immersive technology applications. This includes AR, which has the potential to transform how we experience acoustic performances.
