Paul Erlich (born 1972) is a guitarist and music theorist living near Boston, Massachusetts. He is known for his seminal role in developing the theory of regular temperaments, including being the first to discover pajara temperament[1][2] and its decatonic scales in 22-ET.[3] Though not well known in the realm of academia, his invention of harmonic entropy as a measurement of interval uncertainty (dissonance) has received significant attention from music theorists such as William Sethares.[4] He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Yale University.
