Communication and coordination between singers performing duets Fund-Reznicek, Ella


How do singers communicate with each other while performing? In this study, pairs of singers rehearsed three duets separately, and then performed them together for the first time in the lab. Since singers cannot talk to one another during a performance to assist in coordinating their actions, they must use other modes of communication to synchronize their performances. Correlation map analysis and transfer entropy analysis of video and audio recordings of these performances examined how the singers coordinated their performances non-verbally over the course of each recording session.
