Research

Greg has been researching psychoacoustics and its relationship to music theory since 2008. In 2014 he published his doctoral dissertation entitled Psychoacoustic Entropy Theory and Its Implications for Performance Practice. Since then, he has been expanding on the theories presented in his dissertation as part of a broader body of work he calls Tonalness Theory.

Tonalness Theory is a new way of understanding the information content of human hearing. It gives us new insights into the study of harmony, intonation, and timbre. For more information on Greg’s latest research, please explore his Tonalness Theory Website.
