Visual texture corresponds to tactile/haptic/touch texture. Timbre in sound corresponds to texture. A previous post has a paper explaining. Timbre helps us identify an instrument regardless of pitch. Texture helps us identify an object’s material regardless of how fast we run our fingers over it or look at it. Pitch corresponds to speed. But does it go the other way?

Of course. Speeding a playback up is equivalent to running your finger across a texture faster. Its a faster instrument but the Same.

We interpret speed as pitch.
