The perceived height of octave-related complexes
Journal/Book: J Acoust Soc Am. 1986; 80: 1346-53.
Abstract: Subjects were presented with two-part patterns consisting of tones whose partials stood in octave, or near-octave relation. The perceived heights of the tones in the patterns were found to vary depending on their positions along the chroma circle, so that the patterns were perceived quite differently depending on which of two keys they were in. Implications of these findings are discussed.
