Abstract [en]

This chapter analyses the movement strategies used in drumming. These movement strategies can be described as whiplash-like and aim at achieving high stick velocities on impact. Skilled playing of percussion instruments involves adjusting to and utilising the kinesthetic feedback from the instrument in question. The overall patterns of the movement strategies are maintained consistently for different tempi, surfaces and dynamic levels. The height to which the stick is lifted in preparation for a stroke and the vertical velocity of the stick marker at impact are both strongly linked to the dynamic level.
