Spectral Discord

Spectral Discord is a project that combines psychoacoustics research with modern audio technologies to create new tools for musical composition, performance, and analysis.

The goal is to bring experimental and largely-unexplored areas of music theory out of academia and into the hands of a wider, diverse base of artists and independent researchers via free, open-source software tools.


Open-source (GPLv3) app for analyzing and developing timbres, tuning systems, and compositions using psychoacoustic models for the perception of dissonance, pitch, and more.

Coming Soon


Open-source (GPLv3) C++ library for modeling musical dissonance perception, developing new timbres and tuning systems, and creating tools for music production and analysis.
