... inconsequential for tonal cognition—thus seems inevitable. Here, we challenge the latter notion, presenting data suggesting that absolute pitch and absolute key significantly modify listeners’ judgments of tonal fit and tonal tension. In two experiments extending the probe tone technique (as applied in Krumhansl...

...Robert Erickson There is a need to search for universals in our tonal experience of music which arise as a consequence of our perceptual and cognitive processes and which do not require a specific tonal setting for demonstration. Certain findings in perceptual and cognitive psychology are...

..., emphasizing different notes as the tonic yields different “modes.” Thus, within a set of notes, changing the tonal center changes the putative role of any given note. In this experiment, we eliminated all structural cues to the tonic within a melody by presenting notes randomly selected from the C major scale...

Congruity ratings were examined for syntactically regular or irreg- ular endings in harmonic and melodic contexts. Unlike controls, amusic participants...

Facilitated processing was observed for the more tonally stable mediants over the less stable leading tones, thus...

In both experiments, participants were asked to: 1) identify (sing) the tonic of either an original sequence of tones or a distorted version in which pitch class distribution was preserved but...

...' ratings concurred reliably and corroborated the dual-process theory. Experiment 3 showed that, as the theory predicts, consonant chords are rated as less dissonant when they occur in a tonal sequence (the cycle of fifths) than in a random sequence, whereas this manipulation has no reliable effect on...

...Morwaread M. Farbood This study examines how long the percept of a tonal center is retained in memory following a modulation to a new key, and how harmonic context in the new key area affects recall of the original key. In Experiment 1, musically trained listeners ( N = 50) were asked to rate...
