Born in Basel, Switzerland, and educated in Switzerland, the U.S., the Netherlands, Canada, and Germany, Eric Keller obtained a Ph.D. in Linguistics with a specialisation in psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics from the University of Toronto in 1975. He has taught psycholinguistics, phonetics and computer science at the University of Quebec at Montreal (1978-1991) and at the University of Lausanne (1991-2008).

His interests have revolved around the brain sciences and artificial intelligence. He has been concerned with the psycho- and neurolinguistic modelling of prosodic and acoustic structures of speech in normal and brain-damaged speakers, first in aphasia and dysarthria, and subsequentially in normal speakers of English, French and German. He is the author, co-author, editor or co-editor of well over 100 publications (www.permakultura.ch/cv/Kellerdoc.html). Eric Keller is now professor hon. emeritus of the University of Lausanne.

Currently he dedicates his time full-time to the composition of classical and neo-classical music, found on this venue: www.erickeller.es or www.erickeller.ch.

In 2017, he decided to branch out into neo-classical music where one applies selected 18th century "rules of the game" to new and modern compositions. Much time and thought is given to the best possible musical synthesis at an affordable price. He attempts to evoke positive and beneficial emotions through musical compositions.

*Original composition" and "original interpretation" terms

In an "original composition", all musical components of the composition are novel. In an "original interpretation", the novel musical contribution significantly outweighs a pre-existing contribution. Such a case may present itself for example in the case of a significantly novel interpretation of a known melody.

Eric Keller's compositions and arrangements. Arranged by date of creation, most recent first.

These musical works are free of charges and royalties. Listen, download and share them. The compositions are original. You can use these works as often as you wish and in any commercial or non-commercial context. However, do observe the copyright provisions.

Quality: Recorded at 48 kHz. MP3s: 320 kbps. Beta status: potentially non-final version.

Sound synthesis: Recent recordings have been made with Pianoteq's Ant. Petrof's 275 or Steinway's D piano, Spitfire, Sonivox and/or EastWest virtual instruments, Miroslav Philharmonik 2, or GrandOrgue. Some recordings have also been made with the Garritan virtual orchestra and the Nice Keys or Acoustic Guitars soundfonts. Harpsichord recordings with 432 Hz tuning were generally made on Pianoteq's Grimaldi instrument.

Tuning: Some recordings are given with tunings to the standard 440 Hz as well as to 432 Hz or 415 Hz. 432 Hz is auditorily pleasing and a tuning to 415 Hz was frequently used in the 18th century. Tuning to 432 Hz corresponds to a lowering by half a tone below standard tuning, and at 415 Hz to a full tone below standard tuning.
