I have a new project, called Illusion Songs. It’s a curated collection of auditory illusions found in indigenous folk and popular musics as well as scientific demonstrations.
As the collection fills out, it will turn into an archive, searchable by terms from both ethnomusicology and cognitive science.
In addition to the collection, I will be writing and recording a series of original music compositions for voice and home-made instruments based on the best practices of songs and demonstrations presented here. A unified collection of acoustic ‘covers’ of lab demonstrations for educational purposes will also result. Instruments being built for this include a glass bell ‘gamelan’, and a midi-controlled pipe organ.
