Sample text

One may judge a grid simply on whether its ‘‘time signature’’ is correct (the duple/triple relationships between levels), but ideally one would also judge it in terms of the exact placement of beats in relation to the notes. ) One solution to this problem is an evaluation system that I have proposed elsewhere (Temperley 2004a), the ‘‘note-address’’ system. Under this scheme, each note is assigned an address representing its position in the correct metrical grid. A note address is an ðN þ 1Þ-digit number, where N is the number of levels in the grid.

In listening to music, he observed, we are constantly confronted with uncertainty as to what will occur next. We form expectations which may or may not be fulfilled— expectations based both on general knowledge of the style and on the particular ‘‘intra-opus norms’’ created by the piece. ) In Meyer’s view, music only conveys meaning and expressive effect when expectations are violated in some way. Meyer also noted the possibility of using entropy or information content to quantitatively describe and compare musical styles.

The search process just described yields the best analysis for levels 1 and 2, given the note pattern. We have not yet considered level 3 beats. The strength of a tactus beat (whether it is level 2 or 3) affects the probability of a note being generated at that point; so we must generate tactus-interval analyses for both of these possibilities. Then, in doing the dynamic-programming search, we must consider the possibility of each ð j; iÞ interval being at each possible position in the grid—for example, a 3/4 analysis with a level 3 beat at i—adding it on to the appropriate ðk; jÞ analyses and factoring in the appropriate tactus-interval analysis.
