The purpose of this project is to emulate with a human model representation of how the body reacts, with synchronous movements, to interpreted music. With this project I plan to gain a general understanding of the brains activity but with a greater focus on how the body actually reacts to the underlying beat of the music for periodic movements. I will visually represent the human body with a constructed 3D model, using Coin3D (a 3D modeling software). After successful completion of the modeling program I plan to generate periodic signals, consisting of sine and cosine functions, in Matlab and import the files into my modeling program, saving the values in the predetermined joint arrays (transform nodes). This will then cause the 3D model to move with similar movements to that of the human body after the brain has interpreted the music and sent out the necessary signals throughout the body.
