This paper presents a new model for segmenting symbolic music data into phrases. It is based on the idea that melodic phrases tend to consist of notes, which increase rather than decrease in length towards the phrase end. Previous research implies that the timing of note events might be a stronger predictor of both theoretical and perceived segmentation than pitch information. Our approach therefore relies only on temporal information about note onsets. Phrase boundaries are predicted at those points in a melody where the difference between subsequent note-to-note intervals reaches minimal values. On its own, the proposed model is parameter-free, does not require adjustments to fit a particular dataset, and is not biased towards metrical music. We have tested the model on a set of 6226 songs and compared it with existing rule-based segmentation algorithms that had been previously identified as good performers: LBDM and Grouper. Next, we investigated two additional predictors: meter and the presence of pauses. Finally, we integrated all approaches into a meta-classifier, which yielded a significantly better performance than each of the individual models. ...

Expressive timing facilitates the neural processing of phrase boundaries in music: Evidence from event-related potentials Istók, Eva; Friberg, Anders; Huotilainen, Minna; Tervaniemi, Mari (Public Library of Science, 2013)The organization of sound into meaningful units is fundamental to the processing of auditory information such as speech and music. In expressive music performance, structural units or phrases may become particularly ...
Bruderer, Michael J.; McKinney, Martin F.; Kohlrausch, Armin (2009)Two experiments were conducted to investigate the perception of structural boundaries in six popular music songs. In the segmentation experiment, participants were asked to indicate perceived segment boundaries in monophonic ...
