Lindsey Reymore

Lindsey is a PhD candidate and graduate teaching assistant in music theory at Ohio State. For her work on the cognitive linguistic dimensions of timbre, she received the Early Career Researcher Award from the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences in Music (ESCOM) at the 2018 International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition.  The goal of her current research program is to synthesize empirical research on timbre to develop a timbre-centric methodology for music analysis.
     Lindsey’s interdisciplinary approach to music research has led to collaborations with members of OSU’s psychology department and the department of speech and hearing sciences, the Buckeye Language Network, and Columbus’ science museum, the Center of Science and Industry (COSI). Her work has been funded for the past two summers through the Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences at Ohio State.
    While much of her current work focuses on timbre, Lindsey’s research interests are wide. Ongoing projects also include studies of mode and triad in 17th-century music, Schoenberg’s Klangfarbenmelodie, instrument-specific absolute pitch, the music of fear in The Lord of the Rings, and multimodal emotion associations in music and dance. Lindsey is also an oboist and holds degrees in oboe performance from The University of Texas at Austin (MMus) and Vanderbilt University (BMus).
