Dear Colleagues, We are investigating characteristics of piano and guitar performance that are influenced by physical constraints of the instruments, such as distances between strings and keys. We are also interested in the role of auditory feedback on expressive performance and its interaction with physical constraints of instruments. This query is twofold: do you know of 1) empirical studies of guitar performance, and 2) studies attempting to separate performance influences of physical constraints, auditory feedback, and musical interpretation? Any suggestions are welcome- thanks, Caroline Palmer cpalmer(at) Tim Walker twalker(at)
