MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Table2. 2. Each note consists of three partials. If the sequence is played ascending, then the ?rst virtual pitch tends to be perceived, whereas if played descending, the second, lower virtual pitch tends to be heard. Only one virtual pitch is audible at a time. This can be heard in sound examples [S: 6] and [S: 7].

For instance, a chord played by the violin, viola, and cello of a string quartet is not usually thoughtofashavingapitch;rather,pitchisassociatedwitheachinstrumental tone separately. Thus, determining the pitch or pitches of a complex sound source requires that it ?rst be partitioned into separate perceptual entities. Only when a cluster of partials fuse into a single sound can it be assigned a pitch. When listening analytically, for instance, there may be more “notes” presentthaninthesamesoundwhenlisteningholistically.


Feature:

A unique analysis of the relationship between the structure of sound and the structure of musical scales

A very wide range of instruments is analysed - from existing instruments, electronic instruments, artificial sounds and the sounds and scales on non-western instruments

Contains the only such analysis of Indonesian instruments
