  1. Response to David Temperley's Commentary

    Thomson, William
    The author responds to points raised in David Temperley’s commentary, which appeared in Vol. 1, No. 2 of Empirical Musicology Review. The response includes a discussion of strengths and limitations of atemporal models of musical perception, with particular attention to presentations such as those of Carol Krumhansl and Fred Lerdahl.

  2. Commentary on "Calculating Sensory Dissonance: Some Discrepancies Arising from the Models of Kameoka & Kuriyagawa and Hutchinson & Knopoff" by Keith Mashinter

    Vos, Joos
    The commentary asserts the importance of conducting additional research on additive dissonance, and points to the need for terminological precision in discussions of sensory versus systemic (i.e. learned, context-dependent) dissonance.

  3. Commentary on "The Influence of Pitch Height on the Perception of Submissiveness and Threat in Musical Passages" by David Huron, Daryl Kinney, and Kristin Precoda

    Morton, Eugene S.
    Increasingly, the Arts and Humanities and Science fields are finding common ground, as illustrated in Huron et al.’s fine paper. My commentary discusses the origin of the idea that pitch and motivation have an evolved relationship. Their finding that loudness and aggression are related has been little studied in animals and I suggest an explanation from the biological literature.

  5. Influence of Pitch Height on the Perception of Submissiveness and Threat in Musical Passages

    Huron, David; Kinney, Daryl; Precoda, Kristin
    Bolinger, Ohala, Morton and others have established that vocal pitch height is perceived to be associated with social signals of dominance and submissiveness: higher vocal pitch is associated with submissiveness, whereas lower vocal pitch is associated with social dominance. An experiment was carried out to test this relationship in the perception of non-vocal melodies. Results show a parallel situation in music: higher-pitched melodies sound more submissive (less threatening) than lower-pitched melodies.

  6. An Empirical Method for Comparing Pitch Patterns in Spoken and Musical Melodies: A Comment on J.G.S. Pearl's "Eavesdropping with a Master: Leos Janáček and the Music of Speech."

    Patel, Aniruddh D.
    Music and speech both feature structured melodic patterns, yet these patterns are rarely compared using empirical methods. One reason for this has been a lack of tools which allow quantitative comparisons of spoken and musical pitch sequences. Recently, a new model of speech intonation perception has been proposed based on principles of pitch perception in speech. The “prosogram” model converts a sentence's fundamental frequency contour into a sequence of discrete tones and glides. This sequence is meant to represent a listener's perception of pitch in connected speech. This article briefly describes the prosogram and suggests a few ways in which...

  7. Eavesdropping with a Master: Leoš Janáček and the Music of Speech

    Pearl, Jonathan
    The composer Leos Janácek (1854-1928) has been noted for his interest in speech melodies. Little discussion has focused however on the field methods that he used in gathering them, nor on the products themselves. Janácek spent more than three decades, transcribing thousands of what he termed nápevky mluvy [tunelets of speech] in standard musical notation. The record that remains of these efforts is impressive both for its volume and its quality, as well as for its potential to reveal aspects of the perceptual overlap between music and language. Heretofore his pioneering efforts in the study of speech prosody and music...
