Thanks for that, i can certainly hear the 'tritave similarity'. It's the exact same process that makes octaves sound similar but with a tripling of frequency rather than a doubling, so the octave is not special, it's just the simplest, most consonant and obvious choice for a repeat interval. Makes me wonder about scales repeating at the 5th harmonic (27.86 semitones), with the process of 'quintave / pentave similarlty'.

Thanks for the input. I still don't hear tritave similarity the same as octave similarity, but this discussion is making me think of the octave as just another interval. By the way, I enjoyed the melody. Did you compose it?

Having parsed this out as follows in my mind...

...It sounds like the octave *is* special, and you even listed the reasons why.

I know, obvious observation is obvious, but that makes me wonder... if it is actually the simplest, most consonant and obvious choice for a repeat interval, then why don't you consider that unique and special set of characteristics enough to make it special?

If you don't care enough to research your own question, why should anyone else care more?
