The technical facilities of the ArtLab allow for synchronous registration of acoustic and optical information, facial expression, gestures, peripheral physiological measures, and brain electrical potentials. It also allows for a convenient computer-aided qualitative and quantitative interrogation of audience and performers. Moreover, sound and video recording and editing facilities allow for the production of optic, acoustic and optoacoustic stimuli of professional quality. Finally, stage lighting and room acoustics may be adapted with respect to the type of performance investigated. [MPI EAE Frankfurt / M.]
