Modelling Rhythm Perception by Continuous Time-Frequency Analysis

  title={Modelling Rhythm Perception by Continuous Time-Frequency Analysis},
  author={Leigh M. Smith},
The use of linear phase Gabor transform wavelets is demonstrated as a robust analysis technique capable of making explicit many elements of human rhythm perception behaviour. Transforms over a continuous time-frequency plane (the scalogram) spanning rhythmic frequencies (0.1 to 100Hz) capture the multiple periodicities implied by beats at diierent temporal relationships. Wavelets represent well the transient nature of these rhythmic frequencies in performed music, in particular those implied by… CONTINUE READING
