The Psychological Representation of Musical Pitch in a Tonal Context.
Krumhansl, Carol L.
Cognitive Psychology, v11 n3 p346-74 Jul 1979
In four experiments, evidence was found for a complex psychological representation of musical pitch. The perception of music depends not only on psychoacoustic properties of the tones, but also on processes that relate the tones to one another through contact with a well-defined and complex psychological representation of musical pitch.
