Hi Thomas,

Apologies for chiming in late on this one. You might want to consider
conducting your PhD at Birmingham Conservatoire in the UK.


We have an established research centre, which has run the Integra
project (www.integralive.org) since its inception, and has secured
funding a second project phase. Our research specialisms are mainly
focused on live interaction in performance. Being a Conservatoire, there
is a diverse range of talented instrumental performers to collaborate

We have strong links with a number of other research centres including
the Visualisation Research Unit
(http://www.biad.uce.ac.uk/vru/index.php) at BIAD, so if you were
interested in performance gesture analysis through advanced motion
capture, there are facilities available for that.
