Perfect pitch or absolute pitch is the ability to identify or re-create musical notes and/or chords by ear without the benefit of a reference tone.
Babies are born with nearly 100 billion neurons primed and ready to learn. In the first year of life, the brain explodes with neuronal activity as thousands of new connections are rapidly formed (over 700 new connections per minute!), laying the foundation for experience-based learning, called plasticity. During this time the brain is rich in grey matter, making rapid learning possible. Grey matter increases in volume by 147 percent in just the first year of life alone and peaks around three years of age, only to steadily decline over time. Neural connections that are stimulated thrive while under-stimulated connections are lost. Scientists have dubbed this “use it or lose it” and it is a core component of the Nuryl philosophy.
During this window of heightened brain plasticity, High Information Music™ delivered through the Nuryl app is designed to increase attention span, enhance memory formation, promote language development, and dramatically increase a child’s ability to process information. Research has shown that early music training correlates to advanced language skills with significant enhancements in pitch perception, reading skills, verbal working memory, and pattern recognition. Although music is the catalyst, Nuryl aims to bring other benefits, including enhanced attention span, improved memory, stronger reasoning powers, and a greater predisposition to learn languages. http://www.nuryl.com/2016/05/18/nuryl-is-finally-here/
So, if you have ever wondered what it would be like to have Perfect Pitch… watch Dylan and his Dad in this amazing video!
In broad acoustic terms, Bass refers to sounds that fall below 262 Hertz on the frequency spectrum. In musical terms it can refer to the instruments that make those low sounds as well as the sounds themselves. Its presence in music is critical. The pulse laid down by the bass is like an engine. A whole band will move or not move depending on the actions of the bass. And the notes played in the bassline are like a compass. The lowest sounding pitch can help us find true north, or the harmony of the music.
From November 8, 2015 through July 31, 2016, the Museum of Making Music will introduces several aspects of the low register ~ bass ~ experience. This exhibition will encourage visitors to SEE, HEAR, and FEEL low sound by engaging them with different interactives. It is hoped that this exhibition will open your eyes, ears and imagination to this sonic realm, and to inspire you to incorporate this new awareness into your everyday activities . . . https://www.museumofmakingmusic.org/exhibits/upcoming/2578-low
