Document Summary

Psyc 212 | chapter 7 the auditory system: music and speech perception: music perception. Musical instruments do produce complex tones made up of a fundamental frequency and a series of harmonics. Instruments have a number of different preferred states of vibration (resonance). When played, all of the resonant vibrational modes are activated at once, with each producing its own characteristic frequency. This is what produces a complex tone. Musical pitch: the fact that the pitch of a pure tone of a certain frequency would be perceived to be the same as a complex tone containing the same fundamental frequency and harmonics (under normal conditions only) If complex tones did not produce a single pitch, we would not have music perception. Each harmonic component associated with middle c produces a travelling wave in the basilar membrane its peak occurs where its frequency corresponds to the tonotopic frequency.
