Diana Deutsch

Diana Deutsch is Professor of Psychology at the University of California, San Diego, She is widely known for the musical illusions and paradoxes she discovered; these include the octave illusion, the scale illusion, the glissando illusion, the tritone paradox, the cambiata illusion, the phantom words illusion and the speech-to-song illusion, among others. She also explores memory for music, and how we relate the sounds of music and speech to each other. Further, she studies absolute pitch – why some people possess it, and why it is so rare.

Deutsch contributes to the LIAF exhibition in Svolvær throughout September with an audio work within the ( ) space.
