In 2020, Art in Motion will examine the challenges and opportunities afforded by rhythmic perception, coordination, and training. Presentations will cover research on timing and precision from synapses to elite performance, using microscopes, motion capture, and more. Demonstrations, live concerts, and workshops combine and contrast creative rhythms in sports, dance, and music, including classical to jazz, rap, raga, and polyrhythms from around the world.
