I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Music Department of New York University. My dissertation consists of four ethnographic and historical case studies on sound in the 20th and 21st centuries: the Noiseless Typewriter, Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP), Cepstral Analysis, and Auditory Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR). I attempt to show how bodily juxtapositions, intimacy, and quiddity have been co-constructed with different developments in sound technology.
Separately, I am conducting research on "Statistical Feedback," building on the work done by Larry Polansky, Alex Barnett, and Mike Winter and Charles Ames. I have written an audio-rate external for Pure Data that uses the Statistical Feedback heuristic to synthesize sound (available soon). I am also working on describing the reweighting scheme used in Statistical Feedback in terms of Symbolic Dynamics.
