• Between Introspection and Exhibition: Body-related Aspects of Musical Performances. Visual Signaling, Motional Patterns, Tactility, and the Significance of Playing a Guitar Behind One’s Head

  • This paper focuses on non-auditory aspects of musical performances but will exclude all phenomena that could be labeled as dance movements. Dramatic or theatrical aspects (such as acting or specific stage outfits, etc.) will only be considered insofar as they are directly linked to the production of sound. My intention is to provide a tentative typology of body-related aspects of music-making. Thus, three types or settings in which they play a vital role in musical performances will be discussed and illustrated by examples taken from various cultures.
