"Why Do We Move to Music? (Why Do We Music to Move?)'
Ref.: Sydney Hutchinson

Gastvorlesung von Mariusz Kozak (Columbia University)

Abstract: The world over, music is accompanied by movement. Human movement is obviously necessary to produce sounds, but listeners also engage in bodily activity in response to those sounds, whether in the form of dance or more subtle gestures, like tapping their feet. However, the question of why this would be the case––a question so simple as to seem naïve––largely remains unanswered. In this talk I will offer one possible explanation based on a perspective drawn from embodied cognition, and also consider its reverse: perhaps it is not so much that we move to music, but that we participate in musical activities in order to structure our movements in a particular way.
