In 1990, three major books were published that were to become transformative pillars in the field of music cognition research and beyond:
- Albert Bregman's Auditory Scene Analysis: The Perceptual Organization of Sound, MIT Press
- Carol Lynne Krumhansl's The Cognitive Foundations of Musical Pitch, Oxford University Press
- Eugene Narmour's The Analysis and Cognition of Basic Melodic Structures: The Implication-Realization Model, The University of Chicago Press
In anticipation of the 25th anniversary of these influential tomes, a two-day symposium will be held at the Schulich School of Music of McGill University in Montreal 7-8 July 2014. The symposium will be composed of opening and closing keynote addresses, three sessions with invited speakers reflecting upon the impact of the honorees' work on the fields of music psychology, music theory, cognitive neuroscience and engineering, and a contributed poster session. Musical interludes will be provided by the students and faculty of the Schulich School of Music
