...Stefanie A. Hutka; Claude Alain Absolute pitch (AP) is the rare ability to identify or produce a specific pitch without a reference pitch, which appears to be more prevalent in tone-language speakers than non-tone-language speakers. Numerous studies support a close relationship between AP, music...

In this paper, we tested this prediction by asking musicians with and without AP to imitate vocal notes that are either well-tuned...
