He has special interests in the visualization of musical information, computer applications in music analysis and music pedagogy, and the pre-serial music of the Second Viennese School.
I am interested pitch relations in, and cognitive models, of post-tonal music. One branch of my work is concerned with the assessment of similarity between analytical \"objects.\" This research has so far concentrated on context-free measures of interval-class similarity betwee n pitch-class set classes. Present work involves studying the effects of musical context on these measures through connectionist models. A second branch of work involves the use of self-organizing neural networks to study post-tonal music for underlying structural organization.
