    Our research team in the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, led by principal investigator Richard Ashley, are conducting a research study on ambiguous figure perception in musical contexts. We are inviting English speaking participants who have graduate-level training in music theory (e.g., current graduate students or those with graduate degrees in music theory) to take part in this survey.

    In this survey, participants will hear short musical excerpts, and will rate the ease in forming and changing between two interpretations of bass and soprano lines (provided in scale degrees), and for orderings of Galant Schemata. The survey will take approximately 25-30 minutes, and will take place online through Qualtrics. Participants will not be compensated for their time.

    If you would like to participate in this survey, you can complete it at the link found here: https://northwestern.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8DsMu35WGiefWvk.

    Should you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to Sarah Gates at sarahgates2015@u.northwestern.edu.

    This study has been approved by Northwestern’s Institutional Review Board, and is Study IRB# 00217214.
