A melodic performance can be slightly out of tune (i.e., enlargement or compression of an interval of ~20 cents) and still be rated as “in tune” by layman listeners. In order to elucidate the concept of pitch accuracy in melodies, this study aims (a) to clarify the effect of music expertise when listening to familiar vs. non-familiar melodies and (b) to quantify the perceptual thresholds of music experts when listening to melodic performances. For (a), familiar and non-familiar melodic sequences were manipulated, from “in tune” (deviation of 0 cent) to “out of tune” (10 to 60 cents, in 10 cent steps). The sequences were presented to 30 non-musicians and 30 musicians, matched in age and gender, using the method-of-limits procedure, in a test/retest paradigm. For each condition, participants were asked to specify whether the presented singing performances were “in tune” or “out of tune”. For (b), the same melodies, with smaller manipulations (0 to 30 cents, in 5 cent steps), were presented to 30 musicians using the same procedure. We observed a high test – retest reliability, independent of both familiarity of melody and musical training. As expected, there was an effect of expertise (p < .001) on the perceptual thresholds (experts’ tolerance of ~10 cents). In addition, we observed a specific profile for music experts, who were particularly sensitive to interval compressions. This study yields the opportunity to refine objective tools for the evaluation of singer pitch accuracy but also to provide pertinent material to investigate the music perception process. [less ▲]

This essay attempts to address Janet Frame’s fondness for strategies of literal expression, a formal aspect of her work often pinpointed by the critics but never examined systematically, perhaps because it displays a mercurial quality, inseparable from the author’s wit, which resists easy classification. What can be established at any rate is that Frame’s leaning towards literality cannot be dissociated from her interest in metaphor – rather as if the literal, by virtue of constituting the ground zero of metaphor, implicitly pointed to further layers of meaning subliminally encoded in her texts. Thus it is argued that the literal in Frame tends to gesture towards its equivalent in metaphor, and vice versa, in a way which can be correlated with her thematic preoccupation with another shift of levels, occurring whenever she stages a creative personality keen to transform the ontological given provided by the real in terms of intuited correspondences in a more visionary dimension.

Focusing on works by Derek Walcott, Les Murray, Anne Carson, and Bernardine Evaristo, Katharine Burkitt investigates the relationship between literary form and textual politics in postcolonial narrative poems and verse novels. Burkitt argues that these works disrupt and undermine the traditions of particular forms and genres, and most notably the expectations attached to the prose novel, poetry, and epic. This subversion of form, Burkitt argues, is an important aspect of the texts' postcoloniality as they locate themselves critically in relation to literary convention, and they are all concerned with matters of social, racial, and national identities in a world where these categories are inherently complicated. In addition, the awareness of epic tradition in these texts unites them as "post-epics", in that as they reuse the myths and motifs of a variety of epics, they question the status of the form, demonstrate it to be inherently malleable, and regenerate its stories for the contemporary world. As she examines the ways in which postcolonial texts rewrite the traditions of classical epics for the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Burkitt ties close textual analysis to a critical intervention in the politics of form.
