You gotta wear pearls, Andy! At times it seemed like Nick was obsessed with him. Sometimes the simplest anecdotes are the best. Everyone in the band hates it, particularly the dreadful scene at the end where we all dance together.

Even today, I cringe and leave the room if anyone plays the video. The set was dark and cold, and we spent most of the day drinking alcohol. By the time we were dancing at the end I was half-cut.

Andy wins this one easily and shoehorns in a quick snipe at Nick in the process. For all I could see it might just as well have been about wandering around with a stiffy! Now Nick was getting married? To me, her presence in the group was like a bomb. Always trying to sink their pushy claws into unsuspecting British pop stars. John wins this one for capturing the confusion and angst of losing his closest friend to someone else while simultaneously providing valuable fodder for Duran slash-fiction aficionados, all in a few well-chosen words.

He was a very posh old composer who played the piano with a tumbler of whiskey by his side. John Taylor and I were both heavily into booze ourselves at the time, and we set about heavily leading him astray with more drink.

At times it was impossible for all of us to be in the studio together without having a row, and it was Nick who seemed to be swimming against the tide. They found it hard just being in the same room. They were both stubborn and had very specific visions of how things should get done.

I was caught in the crossfire: friend to Nick, adjutant to John. Stop being so reasonable and diplomatic, JT! Start wildly pointing fingers! There was nervousness in both camps; our relationships had not gotten any better since Paris. If anything, things had gotten worse. And yet, in that ugly, stinking downtown rehearsal room, away from all the media and the bright lights, the girls and all the wedges that had come between us, the tensions melted away.

Playing with Duran was fun. I had forgotten how much.

ANDY: At that moment, everything should have been perfect, but privately we were screwed and in turmoil. When we came offstage in Philadelphia there were no congratulatory hugs or friendly smiles.

It was like we were completely foreign to each other, and it would be the last time we played together for almost two decades. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world, we had quietly in our ever-so-English way been falling apart at the seams for many months before Live Aid.

In truth, we could barely stand to be in the same room. For some reason the mood had turned nasty on the way back—probably due to an excess of booze—and Nick started to accuse me of being an embarrassment in the nightclub. Ever the Head Boy. Suddenly we were in a heated argument as each of us continued to accuse the other of being out of order.

I knew he would never break a nail, and I told him where I would firmly insert the bat if he ever tried something like that. My friendships with all of my bandmates, future and past, are my highest priority.

Suffice it to say there had been a lot of water under the bridge, and none of us were great swimmers. John does the mature and responsible thing and takes the highest possible road to preserve his valuable relationships with his friends; Andy aims straight for the gutters. He brings his girlfriend on tour! They did not find an effect of microtiming, which has been the focus of many groove studies [55] — [57]. In fact, a later study showed that microtiming decreased liking and the desire to move [58].

Microtiming is often referred to as deviations from rhythmic isochrony on a millisecond level, often expressed in performance [59] — [62] , but also purposefully composed by some contemporary producers [63] , [64].

Compared to microtiming, syncopation is a more large-scale, composed form of rhythmic complexity, broadly thought of as a shift of rhythmic emphasis from metrically strong to metrically weak beats [65] , [66].

Syncopation characterises many genres associated with groove, e. Another important structural feature of these genres is repetition [11] , [14] , [56] , [67] , [68]. Because of repetition, any microtiming or syncopation is experienced cyclically [11].

Filling In: Syncopation, Pleasure and Distributed Embodiment in Groove

It is likely that this repetitiveness contributes to the strong propensity towards sensorimotor synchronisation associated with groove, since continuous synchronisation requires predictability [9] , [10] , [68]. However, it is unclear to what extent syncopation within the repeated patterns influences the experience of groove.

Relating directly to the link between rhythm and body-movement in groove, a growing body of research shows that rhythm perception is associated with activity in areas of the brain known to be involved in motor perception and action, such as premotor cortex, supplementary motor area, cerebellum and the basal ganglia, and that activity in these regions is modulated by rhythmic complexity [69] — [75].

Specifically for groove, Stupacher et al.

Furthermore, a study using electroencephalography has shown that the firing patterns of neurons in the brain entrain to the metric periodicities in auditory rhythm, even when some of the acoustic information about the periodicities is missing [76]. Humans' ability to perceive regularity in rhythm, even when the rhythm itself is not uniformly regular, relies on the mechanism of metre perception.

Involving the perception of regularly alternating strong and weak accents, metre in music forms nested levels of isochronous pulses that can be hierarchically differentiated based on their accentual salience [35] , [77].

More often than as a source of affect in music, rhythmic complexity has been used in empirical research to reveal the mechanisms underpinning metre perception [78] — [82].

While some have systematically varied the degree of rhythmic complexity as a factor in musical pattern recognition [83] , others have been interested in how well rhythmic properties can model human judgements of complexity [81]. Syncopation is one of the most studied forms of rhythmic complexity in music [65] , [79] , [84] — [88]. It can be defined as a rhythmic event that violates listeners' metric expectations [65] , [79] , [86] , [88].

Longuet-Higgins and Lee [65] proposed a computational index for calculating the strength of a syncopation, using a hierarchical model of metric salience.

They define syncopation as a note on a metrically weak accent preceding a rest on a metrically strong accent, and their model computes the degree of syncopation based on the difference in metric weights between the note and the rest that constitute the syncopation. A number of researchers have used syncopation in modelling rhythm and metre perception. Some have investigated the extent to which syncopation affects metre perception and the ability to entrain [85] , [89] — [92]. Fitch and Rosenfeld [85] showed that high degrees of syncopation prevented the perception of metre and reduced the ability to synchronise finger-tapping.

Others have used expectancy violation in syncopation as a tool for perceptually validating metric models [79] , [86] , [93] , [94].

In a study comparing 32 different computational measures of rhythmic complexity, Thul and Toussaint [84] found that measures of syncopation outperformed other measures in explaining the behavioural data from four separate studies. The data comprised of judgements regarding perceptual, metric and performance complexity of rhythmic patterns. It was found that models of syncopation better explained the variability in these judgements, compared to for example standard deviation and entropy i.

Syncopation therefore appears to be a more appropriate predictor of perceived rhythmic complexity. Despite the ubiquity of syncopation in music associated with groove, its effects on affective and sensorimotor responses have remained largely unexplored. Since: a structural complexity is related to positive affect [45] , [46] , [48] , b syncopation is a common form of structural complexity in music associated with groove [11] — [14] , and c groove elicits a pleasurable drive towards body-movement [9] , [10] , we investigated the extent to which syncopation can explain the desire to move and feelings of pleasure in groove.

That is, if structural complexity is related to positive affect, then it is possible that the positive affect associated with groove is related to its structural complexity. And since syncopation is a common form of complexity in music associated with groove and positive affect in groove is related to a desire for body-movement, syncopation is a likely candidate for explaining the link between pleasure, desire for movement, and groove.

Specifically, we hypothesised that there would be an inverted U-shaped relationship between degree of syncopation in groove rhythms and ratings of wanting to move and experience of pleasure, in accordance with Berlyne's theory [48]. Since the body-movements associated with groove-based music are primarily entrained to the metre [36] , it is likely that the desire to move is maximised by syncopated rhythms that optimise such sensorimotor synchronisation.

Hence, rhythms that are so syncopated that they disrupt the metre should be less likely to elicit the desire to move or feelings of pleasure.

Conversely, rhythms with little or no syncopation should be unlikely to induce body-movement or pleasure since they lack the structural complexity that is both related to pleasure in music more generally and that characterises the rhythmic structure of music associated with groove specifically. Rather, rhythms with medium degrees of syncopation should be most likely to elicit body-movement and pleasure, since such rhythms include enough rhythmic complexity to stimulate responses, but not so much as to prevent entrainment.

Love, Death, and Duran Duran

In order to test our hypothesis, participants were invited to complete a web-based survey which involved listening to a series of synthesised drum-breaks which varied in their degree of syncopation, and to rate how much these made them want to move and how much pleasure they experienced. We also investigated whether the musical background of listeners [8] , [52] , [93] affected the desire for body-movement and feelings of pleasure, based on participants' self-reported levels of musical training, familiarity with groove-based genres, and frequency and enjoyment of dancing.

Methods Ethics Statement This study investigates subjective experiences of music via a web-based survey. The ethical committee to which the majority of the authors of the present paper report is the Central Denmark Region Committees on Health Research Ethics.

Our study is not considered a health research study section When recruited, participants were informed that their responses would be used for research purposes. Participants were anonymised and no IP addresses were collected or stored. They were free to exit the survey at any time, and provided with an email address at the end of the survey to which they could address any questions or concerns.But when he ditched his first name and picked up a bass guitar, everything changed.

Nine participants were excluded from analyses involving musical background, since they could neither be categorised as musicians, nor non-musicians. When we came offstage in Philadelphia there were no congratulatory hugs or friendly smiles. Download our Spring Fiction Sampler Now. Few contexts make the pleasurable effects of music more obvious than the dance club. Since: a structural complexity is related to positive affect [45] , [46] , [48] , b syncopation is a common form of structural complexity in music associated with groove [11] — [14] , and c groove elicits a pleasurable drive towards body-movement [9] , [10] , we investigated the extent to which syncopation can explain the desire to move and feelings of pleasure in groove.

When overtly or covertly synchronising to music in a social context, the emotional states of one person may be transferred to another, via shared attention to time and dynamics.

Together they were an immediate, massive global success story, their pictures on millions of walls, every single a worldwide hit.
