Towards Movement Generation with Audio Features

Benedikte Wallace, Charles P. Martin, Jim Torresen, Kristian Nymoen

Sound and movement are closely coupled, particularly in dance. Certain audio features have been found to affect the way we move to music. Is this relationship between sound and movement something which can be modelled using machine learning? This work presents initial experiments wherein high-level audio features calculated from a set of music pieces are included in a movement generation model trained on motion capture recordings of improvised dance. Our results indicate that the model learns to generate realistic dance movements which vary depending on the audio features.
