My name is Josh Broyles, and I'm an obscure composer. My current compositional methods draw heavily on material published in the journal Music Perception, Stephen Handel's book Listening, and Eugene Narmour's book The Analysis and Cognition of Basic Melodic Structures. I find Griffith & Todd's Musical Networks amusing, but not particularly useful, as it collectively fails to make use of constraints readily derivable from Loftus & Loftus. Are there other composers who take hard data as seriously as I do? Who are they? Where are they? Why aren't there more of them? Also, why are so many people so suspicious of this approach?
