Written from a musician's, not a psychologist's, point of view, this book describes what we now know of the psychoacoustical features and the cognitive aspects of musical sound. It briefly reviews experimental procedures and philosophy, and provides a concise introduction to acoustics. The text then reviews the psychophysical literature related to the sensory attributes of pitch, timbre, loudness and time and space; and reviews the conginitve literature on pitch, timbre, time, and the development of cognitive awareness from prenatal responses to adult testing. Critical discussions are augmented by 59 listening examples on the accompanying compact disc.
