A/P, relative pitch, mel scale and laterality of the brain

Oversimplified, in The Master and his Emissary


I think Iain McGilchrist attributes 'absolute' [object] perceptions to the left hemisphere, and 'relative' [relational / process] perceptions to the right hemisphere.

Would this indicate that those with absolute pitch process pitch in the left hemisphere and those with relative pitch process pitch in the right hemisphere?

If this is the case, in which hemisphere will the mel scale be processed?

Thanks for your thoughts / knowledge / ideas on this.
