Jordan Lenchitz is a PhD student in music theory and a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the College of Music at Florida State University. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, he holds degrees in mathematics, French, and music composition from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, where he was elected a member of Phi Beta Kappa. His current research explores music as sound from a variety of interdisciplinary and computer-aided approaches, including digital signal processing, mathematical modeling, behavioral psychology, and functional neuroscience. He is particularly interested in 20th- and 21st-century music in extended just intonation from the perspectives of composers, performers, and listeners. Other research interests include postmodern and post-postmodern music for the stage, implicit perceptual learning, algorithmic music composition, music theory pedagogy, and neural and behavioral differences between trained musicians and untrained musical listeners. Previously his research has been funded by the National Science Foundation. He currently is the recipient of a Legacy Fellowship and an active member of The Florida State University Fellows Society. He is also the vice-president of Florida State University’s Music Theory Society and has served on the program committee for their annual Music Theory Forum.
