Sample text

I would like to express my appreciation to the Ali The influence of the tambura drone on the perception of proximity 35 Akbar Khan College of Music and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute for their generous cooperation. Special thanks to Professors Nazir Jairazbhoy, Edward Carterette, Roger Kendall, Sue Carole De Vale, and Eric Holmann for their expert advice. I am deeply indebted to Ustadt Imrat Khan for contributing his invaluable time and consummate talent in support of this work. Notes 1.

In Parncutt (1988), these weights were estimated at 1, 0, 1/5, 1/10, 1/3, 0, 0, 1/2, 0, 0, 1/4, 0, for intervals 0, 1, 2,…, 11. Here, two changes are made to these values. 7 Second, the weights at the remaining root-support intervals 2, 4, 7 and 10 are adjusted to optimize the fit between calculations and the results of the above experiments. First, they are treated as independent free parameters (Table 1 below). Then, the weights listed above are all raised to the power kW (the “harmonic weight parameter”): the second free parameter in the model (Table 2).

Almost all listeners responded “very similar” to this trial. Next in the rank order to mean responses were pairs of major triads (047) with intervals of 5 and 8 semitones between their roots. Surprisingly, the rising fifth (7) was judged more similar than the musically more usual rising fourth (5) (cf. Bharucha and Krumhansl, 1983). Next in line were third relationships (3, 4, 8—but, surprisingly, not 9—semitones). Like fifth relationships, these involve one common tone (for example, the tone 7 is common to 047 and 37Q).
