My doctoral dissertation is entited Perceptual Scheduling in Real-time Music and Audio Applications. I investigated strategies that reduce the computation required by music and audio algorithms while maintaining high audio quality. The goal was to make more computation available for processing in real time and make music systems more robust against real-time quality of service failures. In addition to measuring increases in computational performance, I performed several listening experiments on short musical examples produced using computation-reduction strategies to see if audio quality is preserved.
