My name is Elcon, I sing and mess around the keyboards and harmonica and interested in aurall musical abilities. I also have a decent pitch memory.
I'd like to get to some questions I have:
1. Imagine any tone, what timbre is it and would you have an explanation for that particular timbre?
2. Is there any difference in effort or simplicity in recalling just a single tone and the recall of any song in their correct key?
(What is important here is merely the accurate key of the piece/song and not the entire song with all its instruments and sounds)
3. When you recall a tone, with your best intention to have it accurate to the musical standard, in most cases A = 440, do you only need that one tone or would you use a song to adjust or determine its accuracy?
4. Do you ever notice to be off-pitch when mentally recalling tones? If so, what do you do about correcting this?
5. For us singers, do you notice going flat or sharp gradually when singing acapella? If so, would you notice immediately or at some other point perhaps?
Can I ask one more?
6. If you feel that perfect pitch is all about recognition, how do you explain the recall of tones without external reference?
Could perfect pitch be pitch memory instead? If you don't believe so, could you elaborate on it?
Awesome, I am looking forward for interesting answers already!
Take care and have a wonderful day!
