In this context, the notion of “ABSOLUTE PITCH” (as a catchphrase) is distinguished from “RELATIVE PITCH” (as a catchphrase) These are not Newtonian and Einsteinian absolute and relative and it is a CATEGORY ERROR to try to shoehorn it in where it does not fit. In this case, THAT-WHICH-IS-REFERRED-TO-AS-ABSOLUTE-PITCH seems to have a genetic component as tested among Mongolian and Fininish families. I find this interesting because I have perfect pitch or at least I did as a kid – I think there’s been drift — and it is LIKELY related to strengths in Wernickes area that is connected to the motor neurons of speech and UNDERSTANDING. So that is, it is the part of the brain that attempts give the message: “I UNDERSTAND THAT WHICH I JUST HEARD” in this case, linked to musical pitch although it is typically used in a sense of understanding words or grammar or language generally.
