I'd also like to know the state of things. I was a very active forum member and ETC user some 6 or 7 years ago. It's disheartening to come back to an inactive forum and no recent research update.

Is the project dead?

Not dead!

Here's the shortest version:

Why no updates?
Since finishing my PhD studies in 2012 I've been trying to stabilize my employment situation (yes, this whole time) which has impeded significant progress on everything else. It looks as though that may have finally turned around as of this year, but there still is some settling down to go.

What has happened with the material for adults?
I am still convinced, theoretically, that learning absolute pitch is possible for adults—but my successes with ETC (APA and APP) have helped me discover the extent of the individual work necessary to achieve it. That is, I believe that the problem is equivalent to that of teaching phonemic awareness to illiterates... in a second language. That's a hell of a hill to climb.

What has happened with the material for kids?
This is the most promising avenue right now. Because it works.
