Quote from: Florestan on March 31, 2023, 02:44:31 AMHow many people can hear the music just by reading it, I wonder? Only those with perfect pitch, perhaps?

Quote from: Florestan on March 31, 2023, 10:11:30 AMSpeaking of which, I have a question for you and also @Karl Henning, @Luke and @San Antone. How can one tell, and write down, what note one hears, if they don't have perfect pitch? I ask because actually it's not the first time that I dream melodies and it would be very nice to be able to write them down after I wake up.
Quote from: Luke on March 31, 2023, 10:32:16 AMInitially it's not so much the notes themselves that are important, it's the interval relationships between them you'd need to recall and be able to find. That is, the distinctive sound qualities of the distance between one note and the next. You normally learn to identify quickly these as a youngster, it's part of aural training,
Quote"This is the first significant demonstration that the ability to identify notes by hearing them may well be something that individuals can be trained to do," said Nusbaum. "It's an ability that is teachable, and it appears to depend on a general cognitive ability of holding sounds in one's mind."
Quote from: Cato on March 31, 2023, 12:24:52 PMThe initial idea is never sacrosanct: one look at Beethoven's sketchbooks tells you that the initial idea is probably headed for major reconstructive surgery, along with extraction of its DNA to be altered and cooked for the creation of a related but possibly unrecognizable entity.
Quote from: Luke on March 31, 2023, 12:41:25 PMI have taken similar advice overmuch to heart, though!
Quote from: Cato on March 31, 2023, 12:24:52 PMSome experimenters have looked into whether "Absolute Pitch" (i.e. Perfect Pitch) can be learned.See:https://news.uchicago.edu/story/acquiring-perfect-pitch-may-be-possible-some-adults
