Meeting Description: Pitch and timbre are two essential and complementary perceptual attributes in human speech and music. During this workshop, we propose to revisit the principal productive, perceptual, and cognitive differences/similarities that have been so far described between language and music along these two frequency levels. Examples from various different languages and musical traditions from different continents will be chosen to illustrate the discussions. We also encourage the participation of researchers who have been investigating phenomena of direct music-language interactions, such as the influence of speakers’ native language on the structure of their music (correspondence of pitch patterns in instrumental music/songs/spoken speech in tone and non-tone language; influence of spoken formant ratios on musical scales, etc.) or the impact of musical experience/deficiency on speech production and perception.
