I’ve been dancing around it for years but just not solidifying it. I’d look for specific things. Last was the “grain” of perception, which seems to be 5 ms – and THEN I found a chart showing 2 ms as the point where there’s no discrimination possible and that’s what led me to the book it came from. So I’m hopeful.
So, I did not know for seven years that there is a book on this subject: Music and Memory, that interests me. It was there: written in 2000. Just never heard of it. So, imma find it, see if it helps. Not as interested in Western but Universals. Shouldn’t be hard to distinguish though.
