概要 An account of how musical sounds are coded by the ear, coupled with an analysis of the processing units of the brain. The sounds comprising music were selected by hearing. If we survey what was sele...ted from the beginning to make simple western music, and how it developed, it raises a series of questions about intervals and scales, the tone of instruments, pitch, loudness and time, the answers to which must lie in the nature of our hearing mechanism. Not least, this study throws doubt on the role normally attributed to harmonics. A simplified account of how musical sounds are coded by the ear, of the processing units of the brain through which they pass to the cortex, appears to provide answers to many of the questions. The arguments tend to the view that pitched music must have started with simple instruments rather than with the human voice, and that what and how we hear was determined by the importance to our ancestors of where sounds came from.
Hearing selected music. By surveying what it selected as western music, this book covers much of the acoustics a student needs, without mathematics or scientific background. It raises many questions about intervals, scales, tone, pitch, loudness and time, and throws doubt on the role conventionally ascribed to harmonics. An account of how musical sounds are coded by the ear and the brain's processing units provides answers to most of the questions. It concludes that music started with simple instruments which voices imitated, and that the need to know sound direction determined the characteristics of hearing. Book jacket.
