Acoustical Meeting, Nov. 10-14, 2008 in Miami, Florida

pitch in music, and vice-versa. An intriguing future direction is to investigate whether different types of music training or tone-language backgrounds might affect pitch perception differently. For instance, a future study might compare the identification and discrimination of music pitches among pianists (who manually produce discrete pitches via an external instrument), string players (who manually produce individual and gliding pitches via an external instrument), and singers (who produce discrete and gliding pitches with their voices) as well as perception of those same music- and tone-pitch stimuli in speakers of different tone languages (e.g., Cantonese, with 6 tones and Thai, with 5 tones). Such follow-up studies would potentially deepen our understanding of the effect of experience on the processing of pitch in music and speech and its impacts on auditory learning.

The talk, "Music melody perception in tone-language- and non-tone-language speakers" (2pSC8) by Jennifer Alexander, Ann Bradlow, Richard Ashley, and Patrick Wong, will be presented at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 11.
