21.12.2016 | Hella Kastbjerg

The paper, " Filling In: Syncopation, Pleasure and Distributed Embodiment in Groove", is a phenomenological analysis of how musical groove is distributed between mind, body and music. In this distributed process, syncopations invite the body to 'fill in' through entrainment and synchronised movement. When filling in the gaps, listeners and dancers enact aspects of the musical structure and thus become part of the groove itself.
