Hi, my name is julien. I've been interested in AP phenomenon for few years now and I always had a lot of questions I would like to ask to people with perfect pitch. So if you don't mind here are a few:
1) Is it easier for you to recognize pitches on your own instrument kind than on others? Do you feel like you had to sort of learn the pitches on others instrument ?
2) (linked to 1) Do you think the color of pitch is independant of intrument or dependent on timbre. Therefore do you perceive the tones on different intruments differently ? Do you think the of the individual pitch qualities as a refined timbre perception: timbre allow us to distinguish between different intrument sources whereas pitch color allow us to distinguish between the different pitch sources produced by an instrument?
3) When you hear a chord. Do you hear it as a whole or do you hear it as several pitches played simultaneously. If you hear both do you hear the individual pitches before?
4) When you hear a chord progression, do you hear in a harmonic way (a succession of tones played in harmony) or as different lines of notes being played in parallel (like hearing the bass line, soprano lines and alto lines evolving simultaneously) ?
