Can you hear that?
Absolute pitch is a rare auditory phenomenon that means a person has the ability to identify or re-create a given musical note without a reference tone. Researchers estimate that absolute pitch occurs in about 1 in 10,000 people. The phenomenon has been studied and, because of its rarity, is speculated to be genetic—however, no DNA marker has been found.
