Towards a comprehensive cognitive analysis of delay-influenced rhythmical interaction

Alexander Carôt, Christian Werner, Timo Fischinger


Within the last decade, interdisciplinary researchers have been exploring the area of remote musical interaction. The current network infrastructure already provides high quality audio transmission but it also implies significant transmission latencies depending on the physical distance, network capacities and actual usage. If the latency exceeds a certain value, a realistic musical interplay becomes impossible. Despite numerous valuable investigations it has so far not been possible to figure the precise dimension of this value and in how far it might underly further cognitive or purely musical aspects. This paper refers to the most significant findings in this area, extracts problems and unsolved questions in order to establish an own comprehensive cognitive analysis of delay influenced rhythmical interaction. © July 2009- All copyright remains with the individual authors.
