Adriaan Campo – Exploring Kinematic Parameters in Music Education and Performance: Towards Real-Time Feedback and Motor Learning Assessment

Wednesday, April 17

34-401B - Grier B


Recently, state-of-the-art motion capture analysis has entered the music research paradigm. The potential of this technique is largely untapped for assessing music perception and performance kinematics, music education, and even motor learning in general. In this talk, Dr. Adriaan Campo will give an overview of his research activities related to motion capture and music skill assessment, and how monitoring of kinematic parameters can be used to provide guidance and even real-time feedback in an educational context. Additionally, he will provide an overview of remaining challenges and research opportunities, as well as future interdisciplinary projects with other relevant research fields, including machine learning and neuroplasticity research.


Adriaan Campo is a bio-engineer and musician. He earned his PhD in biomedical physics from Antwerp University, Belgium, where he developed non-invasive methods for assessing arterial stiffness. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Biomedical Engineering Department at Columbia University, NY, USA, he conducted research on elastography of arteries and soft tissues. Currently, he works at the Institute for Psychoacoustics and Electronic Music at Ghent University, Belgium, where he investigates the kinematics of music education, real-time feedback, and haptic technologies, with a focus on violin playing and drumming. He has a special interest in interdisciplinary research relating music to motor learning and skill assessment.
