Embodied Experience and Situated Cognition in the Performance of Electronic Music
Music performance with technological instruments questions the relationship between embodied experience, situated cognition and the instrument. Key elements that constitute a present, aware and embodied music performance in an exploratory music practice are agency, intentionality and perceptual attitudes. Based on the experience as a performer on stage, a particular focus is put on the cognitive processes and types of awareness of the body in exploratory music situations.
