Special Issue Music and Eye-Tracking
In summer 2017, the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics hosted, for the first time, a conference on the topic of what eye-movements, pupil dilation and blinking activity might tell us about musical processing (MET 17).
More than 60 researchers from a diverse range of disciplines followed the invitation (psychology, neuroscience, all fields of music research including music ethnology and systematic musicology). As a result of the scientific exchange this Special Issue on Music & Eye-Trackingemerged and is now finalized, freely available, and covers topics such as music reading, music during visual tasks, mobile eye-tracking during live performance, and pupillary responses to music.
Due to the broad interest and success of the first conference, the second conference on “Music and Eye-Tracking” (MET 20) will take place on July 16th & 17th 2020 at the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics in Frankfurt. As soon as more information on MET 20 is available, you will find it here.
