Alexander Jensenius’ Musical Gestures

I found a fellow blogger called Alexander Refsum Jensenius who has a nice collection of posts about gestures. His main interest is in Musical Gestures and the technology to capture them. There are also some nice thoughts and pictures regarding the nature of gesture (that I could not resist commenting on). He made a nice illustration of the movement phases of a gesture unit according to Kendon.

And he is also trying to include fidgeting into his ‘movement-flux diagram’. I wonder how far he can get in capturing the movement possibilities in such pictures? Anyway, it is nice to find another PhD-student thinking about similar topics.

Update 24 feb: Jensenius’ site seems to be down, together with the picture, alas.
