In both tasks and for both ages, directions of change in motion and musical parameters correlated, e.g., increase in loudness was associated with increasing speed, increasing muscular energy, and spatial rise. The effect of pitch direction was...

For British amusics, the direction deficit is related to the rate of change of the final pitch glide in statements/ questions, with...

The principle of registral direction states that small intervals imply continuations in the same pitch direction, whereas large intervals imply a change in direction. Narmour argues that the impli- cation to change direction after a large interval...

... corpus of 48 improvised solos by the jazz great Charlie Parker. To be able to compare melodic patterns independent of absolute pitch, all pitches were converted to directional intervals listed in half steps. Results showed that 82.6% of the notes played begin a 4-interval pattern and 57.6% begin interval...

..., in those sequences the directionality of melodic pitch covaried with register. Therefore, the evidence of the influence of pitch register on perceived tension is inconclusive.
