Pitch and rhythm paradoxes: comments on "Auditory paradox based on fractal waveform"
Journal/Book: J Acoust Soc Am. 1986; 80: 961-2.
Abstract: Schroeder [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 79, 186-189 (1986)] describes the paradox of acoustic waveforms that sound lower when reproduced at higher speeds. The author has also demonstrated this paradox [J.C. Risset, J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 46, 88 ( A) (1969); see also Seventh ICA, Budapest, S10, 613-616 (1971)]; in addition he has recently synthesized a rhythmic analog of the paradox, namely rhythmical sequences that can sound slower when reproduced at higher speeds.
