An integrative dual-route model of rhythm perception and production
An integrative dual-route model of rhythm perception and production is proposed here. Furthermore, an empirical study illustrated in the second part of this paper provides evidence of the existence of two different cognitive pathways. The development of the model is based on fundamental psychological principles of perception, action control and relevant neurobiological findings in rhythm processing and sensorimotor synchronization. Experiments with a dual-task paradigm were used during synchronization tapping to verify the fundamental assumptions of the model. The aim was to examine whether professional drummers show a change in tapping performance when their attention is drawn to another task. In contrast to other experiments on sensorimotor synchronization with non-musicians, the results show a considerable effect on the tapping performance of timing experts for the concurrent condition with tempi between 100 and 120 bpm. Overall, these results provide further evidence of the existence of both, an automatic and a cognitively-controlled timing procedure, which is also in line with the integrative dual-route model of rhythm perception and production mentioned above. ...

Comparing MEG and EEG in detecting the ~20-Hz rhythm modulation to tactile and proprioceptive stimulation Illman, Mia; Laaksonen, Kristina; Liljeström, Mia; Jousmäki, Veikko; Piitulainen, Harri; Fross, Nina (Elsevier, 2020)Modulation of the ~20-Hz brain rhythm has been used to evaluate the functional state of the sensorimotor cortex both in healthy subjects and patients, such as stroke patients. The ~20-Hz brain rhythm can be detected by ...
Social effects of interpersonal synchronization during listening to music compared to a metronome: What can we learn from implicit measures? Stupacher, Jan; Witte, Matthias; Wood, Guilherme (Department of Music, University of Jyväskylä & Finnish Centre for Interdisciplinary Music Research, 2016)Interpersonal coordination, such as simultaneous rhythmic movement, is a fundamental way to form socioemotional connections. The social and emotional power of music might further strengthen such interpersonal bonds. Here, ...
Two studies investigating the value of DJing for contemporary music education MacCutcheon, Douglas (2014)This research investigated the importance of cognitive skills learned through DJing and perspectives on the potential value of DJing for music education through two studies. The first was a qualitative investigation into ...
The Relationship between Auditory Imagery and Musical Synchronization Abilities in Musicians Pecenka, Nadine; Keller, Peter E. (2009)Musical ensemble performance requires precise action coordination. To maintain synchrony in the presence of expressive tempo variations, musicians presumably anticipate the sounds that will be produced by their co-performers ...
Tapping Doesn't Help : Synchronized Self-Motion and Judgments of Musical Tempo London, Justin; Thompson, Marc; Burger, Birgitta; Hildreth, Molly; Toiviainen, Petri (Springer; Psychonomic Society, 2019)For both musicians and music psychologists, beat rate (BPM) has often been regarded as a transparent measure of musical speed or tempo, yet recent research has shown that tempo is more than just BPM. In a previous study, ...
