Survey at least one of the online experiments listed below. Write a short evaluation report about the goals and methods of the experiment (1-2 paragraphs). To the best of your knowledge, how well did the design fit the experimental goal? (These are not always provided; some present the goal(s) before, and some after.) Based on your exploration, what may be some of the limitations of the methods use? NOTE: Your project group will benefit most from assigning a different demo to explore to each group member. Please post your response here by April 11.
The Music Cognition Group at the University of Amsterdam has a few online experiments that you can test (click “Online Experiments” on left side menu): http://cf.hum.uva.nl/mmm/index.html?jobs.html&target
Two of the online experiments are available in English:
– Rhythmic complexity: http://cf.hum.uva.nl/mmm/exp4/
– Timing and tempo in classical, jazz and rock music: http://www.mcg.uva.nl/drafts/EEE-online/EEE-index.html
Both of these will require you fill a questionnaire before you start; you can fill those randomly. Once the questionnaire is submitted you should be able to proceed to the experiment proper.
