Music theorists (Berry, Rink) and psychologists (Clarke, Todd) have described musical processes as bipolar changes in “intensity”(intensifications or abatements), analogously expressed by different musical parameters. This notion implies that musical gestures whose contours of intensity change are analogous may be perceived as similar, even when these changes are expressed by different parameters. Relevant studies notwithstanding (eg, by Clynes), the validity of this hypothesis has yet to be studied systematically.
