Re: Pitch learning
I think that the most challenging instrument to any pitch theories is
the gamelan ensemble: partials produced by each metal bloc are
inharmonic and the (supposed) fundamental frequencies of the bloc
series define an inharmonic scale that varies from gamelan to
gamelan, except that they never include simple harmonic ratios.
During my studies some time ago I read in a respected source that
there are gamelans in which even the octave is missing.
