Published: 01 September 2017
...Daniel L. Bowling; Marisa Hoeschele; Kamraan Z. Gill; W. Tecumseh Fitch In a recent Nature paper, McDermott et al. (2016) conclude that the perception of consonance arises from familiarity with the conventions of Western harmonic music and is relatively unconstrained by auditory neurobiology. We...

...Paula Virtala; Mari Tervaniemi Major-minor and consonance-dissonance are two profound elements of Western tonal music, and have strong affective connotations for Western listeners. This review summarizes recent evidence on the neurocognitive basis of major-minor and consonance-dissonance by...

... experiments and from statistics on their prevalence in Western classical and popular music. Among the triads, major and minor chords are perceived as relatively pleasant, consonant and beautiful, and they totally dominate most forms of popular music, globally. Other triads are of course employed, but...

...George A. Seror, III; W. Trammell Neill Two experiments examined whether discrimination of component pitches in a harmonic interval is affected by the consonance or dissonance of the interval. A single probe pitch (B or C) was followed by a two note harmonic interval including that pitch (e.g., C...

...Laurel J. Trainor; Christine D. Tsang; Vivian H. W. Cheung The preferences of 2- and 4-month-old infants for consonant versus dissonant two-tone intervals was tested by using a looking-time preference procedure. Infants of both ages preferred to listen to consonant over dissonant intervals and...

...Allan B. Smith Huron (1994) recently calculated the tonal (sensory) consonance for interval categories for all scales that can be drawn from the 12 equally tempered pitch classes. Among scales with seven tones, the combinations that allow the highest tonal consonance were found in the diatonic...

... of perceived consonance for each interval class. If a goal of music-making is to promote a euphonious effect, then those sets that exhibit a plethora of consonant intervals and a paucity of dissonant intervals might be of particular interest to musicians. In this paper, it is shown that the pitch...

...David Huron An analysis of a sample of polyphonic keyboard works by J. S. Bach shows that the prevalence of different vertical intervals is directly correlated with their degree of tonal consonance. A major exception to this pattern arises with respect to those intervals that contribute to tonal...

...Ernst Terhardt This paper is a presentation of the essentials of a new concept and foundation of musical consonance described by the present author in German in Acustica 36,121-137 (1976). Musical consonance is considered from the terminological, musical, conceptual, and psychoacoustic aspects. An...

While previous studies have found that the periodicity of musical intervals is temporally encoded by neural phase locking throughout the auditory...

... listeners judged the major chord and the minor chord as the most pleasant ones compared to other chord types. CI users appraised the major chord as more consonant than other chord types. The second task used four-chord sequences, half of which ended on an authentic V-I cadence. In the other presentations...

High-pitch spectrum noises were associated with more sense of movement than low-pitch spectrum noises. Consonant intervals and low-register intervals were evaluated as more...

..., results suggest that listeners’ judgments were influenced not only by consonance or pitch class distributions (i.e., by underlying “scales”), as expected from previous research, but also by pitch dispersal. Interestingly, it was also found that Schoenberg’ melodies became not only less diatonic over time...
