Abstract or Description

In this paper we present two datasets of instrumental gestures per- formed with expressive variations: ve violinists performing stan- dard pedagogical phrases with variation in dynamics and tempo; and two pianists performing a repertoire piece with variations in tempo, dynamics and articulation. We show the utility of these datasets by highlighting the di erent movement qualities embed- ded in both datasets. In addition, for the violin dataset, we report on gesture recognition tests using two state-of-the-art realtime gesture recognizers. We believe that these resources create op- portunities for further research on the understanding of complex human movements through computational methods.
