research: perfect pitch in the context of jazz improvisation

Besides creating and performing music, I am also very much into researching things that interest me. Often things that interest me concern the arts in general, and many times music specifically.

One possible way for me to research fields of interest (that are also of interest for our students as they might concern the development of artistic and/or pedagogical skills) is doing research for the music universities I teach at. Just today I got the green light to go on and research the phenomena of perfect pitch in the context of jazz improvisation at Lausanne music university HEMU. I couldn’t be happier! In about nine months, I will be able to share first results.
