Caption: Composite image of computed plots of pianist David Owen Norris's hands as he plays the final crescendo chords of a piano piece. High-technology Vicon motion-capture cameras have plotted a 3-dimensional image of the array of small retroflective markers taped to his hands. This technique is known as HAWK (Hand And Wrist Kinetics). The research could have implications for the understanding of repetitive strain injury and also for the teaching and understanding of musical performance.
