Influence of the Delay in Monitor System on the Motor Coordination of Musicians while Performing

Document Thumbnail

This paper provides a description and results of measurements of the maximum acceptable value of delay tolerated by a musician, while playing an instrument, that does not cause de-synchronization and discomfort. First, methodology of measurements comprising audio recording and a fast camera is described. Then, the measurement procedure for acquiring the maximum value of delay conditioning comfortably playing is presented. Results of musician’s response while playing an instrument along with a delayed signal reproduced from the monitor system are shown. Finally, a presentation of the highest values of delays for musicians playing different instruments is given along with a detailed discussion on the methodology used.
