Lonce Wyse

Associate Professor

Lonce Wyse is a Associate Professor at the Department of Communication and New Media, National University of Singapore. He directs the IDMI Arts and Creativity Lab with its focus on sound in music and the arts. For his PhD (1994) in Cognitive and Neural Systems from Boston University he developed a computational model of musical pitch perception. He joined the Institute of Incomm Research in Singapore in 1994 where he designed and developed interactive sound systems. He is currently with the faculty of Communications and New Media at the National University of Singapore teaching in Sonic Arts and Media Aesthetics, and pursuing research in electroacoustic music creation, theory, and psychology.
