Studies are usually held in the CSML, on the fifth floor of Mershon Auditorium.  Note that you should enter the building through the RED DOOR facing High Street.  

 

Study 1: Violin/Viola Duet Motion Capture Study (violinists/violists only, $20 payment)

Violinists and violists of all skill levels are needed for a musical experiment here at the School of Music, OSU. Participants will receive a compensation of $20 for their time and effort.

The experiment lasts 1.5-2 hours and will take place at the Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) at Sullivant Hall, 1813 N High St. Participants will be asked to play two short duets by Béla Bartók with another individual a number of times. Movements and sounds will be recorded using video camera and a motion capture system. These recordings will be fully anonymized.

If interested, contact Niels (hansen.491@osu.edu) to schedule a time to participate.
