To explore to what extent emotional intentions can be conveyed through musicians’ movements, video recordings were made of amarimba player performing the same piece with the intentions Happy, Sad, Angry and Fearful. 20 subjects were presented video clips, without sound, and asked to rate both the perceived emotional content as well as the movement qualities. The video clips were presented in diﬀerent conditions, showing the player to diﬀerent extent. The observers’ ratings forthe intended emotions conﬁrmed that the intentions Happiness, Sadness and Anger were well communicated, while Fear was not. Identiﬁcation of the intended emotion was only slightly inﬂuenced by the viewing condition. The movement ratings indicated that there were cues that the observers used to distinguish between intentions, similar to cues found for audio signals in music performance.
