Steffen A. Herff

PhD candidate, Memory and Music Perception, Western Sydney University

I am a PhD candidate at the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development, Western Sydney University. I am a member of the Music Cognition and Action research program working with Professor Roger Dean and Dr. Kirk Olsen on a project investigating memory for melody. We have found some remarkable memory phenomena within the domain of music.

Together with Dr. Andrew J. Milne I am investigating the intimate relationship of Math and Music. Recently, we have released free software for the algorithmic construction of perfectly balanced and well-formed rhythms.
