I am currently conducting a study on the perception and production of legato articulation on the piano. In that connection, I wonder whether there is any psychoacoustic literature on OVERLAP DETECTION. That is, are there any studies that presented two (or more) successive tones, clearly different in pitch but similar in intensity, that overlapped by various amounts, with the listener's task being to report whether the first tone ended before or after the second tone started? (This is sort of the opposite of gap detection.) I'd be grateful for any references. Bruno H. Repp
