Interesting. I wonder if the difference is wholly a function of the brain, or if we sense lower frequencies by "feel" as much as by hearing. Will have to find that article.

I thought the beat was heard in the metallic rattle of piece of shiat cars with too-loud systems.

I'm never going to play the beat again. Everyone will know if I suck down to a subconscious level.

Tobin_Lam: I'm never going to play the beat again, guilty feet have got no rhythm

I dispute this article's examples of the universality of "melody on top, rhythm in bass".

In many common forms of Indonesian gamelan, the melody is found primarily in the middle register.  And a Mozart piano sonata is so likely to invert the parts, with melody in the left and obbligato in the right, that it's practically a trope of his style.

You found a couple of exceptions to a general rule. Good for you. Have a cookie.

Two exceptions out of three examples given in the article, and if I knew more about Indian classical music I might have something to say about the third.

All I'm saying is I'm not the only one trying to look smarter than I actually am here.

we needed science to tell us this?
