Hello, Was wondering if anyone knew of some research / evil experiments dealing with perceived time stretching/condensing with certain patterns of sounds with differing spectra? More specifically, I am interested in any local-micro-tempo-curve deviations that might be experienced with various percussive sounds. For instance, if we play a standard Ump-Sss-Ump-Sss-Ump-Sss disco beat at some poor devil, do they feel any temporal attraction between the Sss-Ump as opposed to the Ump-Sss? (assuming perfect sequencer time here.) Or perhaps any changes in the detection threshold of 'swing' with various combinations of timbres? Thank you for all those giving pause to my request - any pointers to relevant literature very much appreciated!
