Upcoming Events

Known for enthusiastic and dynamic presentations, Joshua Leeds teaches psychoacoustic applications of music and sound to lay people and professionals internationally. Broadly defined, psychoacoustics is the study of the perception of sound. This includes how we listen, our psychological responses, and the physiological impact of music and sound on the human nervous system. As a sound researcher and pioneering producer of psychoacoustically designed music, Joshua is uniquely positioned between the worlds of music and science, education and commerce. In addition to conference presentations, Joshua conducts 1-5 day seminars. Each event is designed to meet the specific needs of the sponsoring organization. With psychoacoustics the over-arching theme, Joshua’s primary demographic includes healthcare and education professionals and those involved in the field of music and sound.Topics of exploration include:

  • Sound as frequency medicine
  • The vital importance of auditory health
  • The core principles of Dr. Alfred Tomatis (1920-2001)
  • The function of the auditory system from a Tomatis vantage point
  • The interconnection of tonal processing and neurodevelopmental issues
  • How stress- or noise-induced auditory dysfunction may result in learning, communication, and social difficulties
  • Current sound stimulation techniques that retrain middle ear function
  • Binaural beat frequencies
  • Resonance (tone) and entrainment (rhythm) for brainwave modification
  • The effects of auditory pattern identification
  • The impact of soundspace upon any environment
  • Frontiers of soundwork
  • Psychoacoustic music production techniques
  • How to create soundtracks and soundspace conducive to office ambience, treatment application, and classroom environments
