Audiovisual Analysis and Synthesis of Body Motion for Performing Arts
Performing arts, including music, dance, drama, and opera, are rich sources of multimodal content, where the artist uses her/his own body and face gestures to perform choreography. Performing arts often include a collective union of music and human body movements. Choreography performance occurs in synchrony and harmony with music in the form of body movements of the performer. Automatic analysis and synthesis of performing arts require expertise from different areas, such as body motion analysis, music analysis, and multimodal signal processing for joint modeling of body motion and musical structure. The goal of this special issue is to gather most recent advances in these areas with a focus on modeling and synthesis of body motion for performing arts.
