Subject: psychologically informed composition?

   My name is Josh Broyles, and I'm an obscure composer. My current
compositional methods draw heavily on material published in the
journal Music Perception, Stephen Handel's book Listening, and Eugene
Narmour's book The Analysis and Cognition of Basic Melodic
Structures. I find Griffith & Todd's Musical Networks amusing, but not
particularly useful, as it collectively fails to make use of
constraints readily derivable from Loftus & Loftus.

   Are there other composers who take hard data as seriously as I do?
Who are they? Where are they? Why aren't there more of them?

   Also, why are so many people so suspicious of this approach?
