Outside of anechoic chambers, that's always true. But nothing about 
static geometry can change the pitch of sound. Least of all when the 
surfaces are inelastic. John was right. It is inherently a non-linear 
process. Simple hard surfaces can hardly be expected to exhibit such 
active characteristics, regardless of their shape.    (02)

All I can say is: Prove it! Prove it using non-human sound-generating 
and measuring instruments.    (04)
