Music Perception and Processing

We study how normal-hearing and hearing-impaired listeners make sense of musical sound. We consider music as a particularly exciting and challenging case of auditory perception and regard auditory perception as a critical determinant of musical culture. We conduct psychoacoustic experiments, develop auditory perception models, and design music audio processing algorithms. Please see our Research page to learn more about current projects and the Events page for past and upcoming activities.
