Music Cognition Reading Group

A monthly reading/discussion group
on music cognition and related topics was created and moderated by Aline Honingh since 2004.  From 2006 on members of the Music Cognition Group, Leigh Smith and Olivia Ladinig, continued organising the event in it's initial design.  Now meetings are called roughly every two months by Olivia, on flexible dates and times. For each meeting one or two articles are chosen (and read by the participants beforehand) to form the basis for a discussion.  Generally, the person who suggests a particular paper also gives a short overview of it or highlights some discussion points at the beginning of the reading group.  Also, attendees are encouraged to present their own work, since this is a nice opportunity to get feedback about ones own work.  If you are interested in attending these meetings, please send an e-mail to, in order that you will receive email notifications about upcoming meetings. Suggestions for papers to discuss during one of our meetings are very welcome. The meetings are held at the Euclides building (Institute for Logic, Language and Computation) at Plantage Muidergracht 24, 1018TV Amsterdam. You can find a route description here.
