Music Perception and Processing

In the Music Perception and Processing Lab, we study how normal-hearing and hearing-impaired listeners make sense of musical sound. We develop music processing algorithms and perception models. Please see our Research page to learn more about current projects and the Events page for past and upcoming activities.
