Researchers Study Our Love for Deep Bass

Full article at http://goo.gl/rmwUnY.

Have you ever wondered why bass-range instruments tend to lay down musical rhythms, while instruments with a higher pitch often handle the melody?

The research is in PNAS. (full access paywall) 

Research: “Superior time perception for lower musical pitch explains why bass-ranged instruments lay down musical rhythms” by Michael J. Hove, Céline Marie, Ian C. Bruce, and Laurel J. Trainor in PNAS. doi:10.1073/pnas.1402039111
