Voice-leading and orchestration are two of the most prominent techniques composers use to create the auditory illusion that we call music. Join us as we explore some of the empirical evidence identifying the limits of what humans can hear and what we find pleasant.

A free evening of music education and entertainment presented by Dr. Sarah Sauvé, a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Cognitive Aging and Auditory Neuroscience Lab led by Dr. Benjamin Zendel at Memorial University of Newfoundland. She recently graduated with a PhD from Queen Mary University, working under the supervision of Dr. Marcus Pearce in the Music Cognition Lab and Dr. Elaine Chew in the Music Performance and Expression Lab (MuPaE). Her research focused on expectation in auditory streaming, working with the IDyOM computer model of musical expectation, and extends to themes of timbre perception, musical training and attention.

Sponsored by Cox & Palmer and the Tuckamore Chamber Music Festival.
