This paper is an attempt to make amends for our previous cultural egocentricity by suggesting how our psychological developmental prospective could be adapted to an intercultural one, into which existing knowledge from the field of ethnomusicology and future cross-cultural studies could be incorporated. Our previous research has focused on how people hear musical and nonmusical rhythms in order to identify the underlying psychological processes that make the perception of music such a fulfilling and satisfying activity.
There may be an additional coding of ‘longer’ or ‘shorter’. Thus, our system may code two or three categories of durations (same/different, or same/longer/shorter); but note that this is a relative, rather than absolute, coding system. One consequence of this type of processing is that if a sequence is irregular (each interval has a different duration) but all the intervals remain within the tolerance window, then we will perceive this sequence as the succession of ‘same’ intervals and so perceive a regular sequence.
