I mean I suppose it’s up to you whether you “recognize” the Universität Konstanz, but it’s a rather large place.

Tell himself is indeed not working in the field anymore—this preprint was submitted to at least one journal as I understand but was not accepted before the grant was up or so and he could no longer keep pushing for publication; instead he went into acoustic signal processing with a friend, and they both started a company called SoundTheory now. Something about trying to maximize the information “punch” of music to your brain makes it sound better or reduces background noise or something.

The paper is still interesting on its own merits though. I mean, it’s interesting to me; of course your mileage may vary.
