Anybody got links to some reading on how we percieve and process sound outside of the usual wikipedia and fletcher-munson stuff? Yeah, you can go googling and find a ton of stuff, a lot of which doesn't have to do with music interperetation specifically, or is some masters thesis you'd have to be a biologist to understand in the first place. My thinking is this......there are all kinds of tone-shapers and speaker systems out there that many of us like or don't like for various reasons and all sort of methods of "trickery" to make the human ear hear, or not hear, various things. We can take this stuff, make all kinds of measurements of it under all sorts of conditions in an effort to see what it is or isn't doing to try and find out what it is about it that we like or don't like, but it still all boils down to the biology of how our ears and brains pick up, process, and percieve what's happening. Obviously, music isn't test tones, ears are not microphones and brains are not sound cards. So, anybody got any links to some reading on this that might be a little more specific to what we do here as musicians, that also, with the help of maybe searching some unfamiliar, subject-specific vocabulary terms, might be understood by a non-biologist? Thanks and Merry Christmas.
