The physical gestures that chamber ensembles and other musicians enact in order to seamlessly perform ‘as one’ include cues such as a fleeting glance, a subtle nod of the head, or the rise of the torso. These physical gestures are the root of how musicians share vital information to one another – empowering them to share ideas and stay open to improvisational interpretations. With the pandemic now requiring musicians to perform remotely, the limitations of video – which is currently the main aspect of telematic performance – to communicate these subtle physical gestures has become clear. Researchers for “Visualizing Telematic Performance” have spent the past year conducting a series of experiments to explore other ways that these visual cues can be shared and a recent demonstration of their research thus far was recorded to show the experimental ideas that they hope will shift the scope of what telematic performance can encompass.
