Towards a Cognitive Architecture for Music Perception

  title={Towards a Cognitive Architecture for Music Perception},
  author={Antonio Chella},
The framework of a cognitive architecture for music perception is presented. The architecture extends and completes a similar architecture for computer vision developed during the years. The extended architecture takes into account many relationships between vision and music perception. The focus of the architecture resides in the intermediate area between the subsymbolic and the linguistic areas, based on conceptual spaces. A conceptual space for the perception of notes and chords is discussed…

Creativity in Conceptual Spaces
The main aim of this paper is showing the relevance of a particular mathematical representation of Gärdenfors’s conceptual spaces to the problem of modelling a phenomenon which plays a central role in producing novel and fruitful representations of perceptual patterns: analogy.


A Cognitive Architecture for Artificial Vision
Music Cognition and Perceptual Facilitation: A Connectionist Framework
The mind internalizes persistent structural regularities in music and recruits these internalized representations to facilitate subsequent perception. Facilitation underlies the generation of musical
A cognitive model and a knowledge representation system for music and multimedia
A cognitive model and an experimental system for the representation and real‐time processing of music and multimedia, based on both artificial intelligence (AI) and traditional techniques are introduced.
Music and Connectionism
As one of our highest expressions of thought and creativity, music has always been a difficult realm to capture, model, and understand. The connectionist paradigm, now beginning to provide insights
Computational Models of Music Cognition
Conceptual spaces - the geometry of thought
Peter Gardenfors's theory of conceptual spaces presents a framework for representing information on the conceptual level and shows how conceptual spaces can serve as an explanatory framework for a number of empirical theories, in particular those concerning concept formation, induction, and semantics.
Chapter 1 Computational Modelling of Music Cognition and Musical Creativity
This chapter is about computational modelling of the process of musical composition, based on a cognitive model of human behaviour, to relate it to human behaviour during the same process so that it may work in the same way as a human composer.
6 – Grouping Mechanisms in Music
The Cognition of Basic Musical Structures
In this book, David Temperley addresses a fundamental question about music cognition: how do we extract basic kinds of musical information, such as meter, phrase structure, counterpoint, pitch
Unifying Conceptual Spaces: Concept Formation in Musical Creative Systems
Gärdenfors’ theory of conceptual spaces offers a way of bridging the traditional divide between symbolic and sub-symbolic representations, as well as the gap between representational formalism and meaning as perceived by human minds.
