[Perception and prediction in melody: simulation of the final-tone extrapolating behavior]
Journal/Book: Shinrigaku Kenkyu. 1987; 58: 275-81.
Abstract: This paper describes a theory of human melody perception and his final-tone extrapolation behavior, enbodied in a computer simulation model called FTES 2. Related experimental findings were also presented. The processes used by an expert musician in extrapolating final-tones and the computer simulation of these processes are contrasted and discussed. The theory consisted of a few general rules and several personal "tonal" processing rules. The present findings indicate that interpretation of a melody depends, in large part, on the characteristics of the "tonal" rules.
