Absolute Pitch in Naturalistic Singing: A Commentary on Olthof et al. (2015)
Keywords:absolute pitch, aging, gender, naturalistic recordings
AbstractThe parent article looks at pitch stability in an archive of folksongs recorded over several decades. Some evidence for pitch stability was found. Here, I consider some additional aspects of the archive that could be examined, offers some extensions to relevant laboratory studies, and considers some inherent strengths and limitations of the naturalistic, archival approach.
