The COSMOS project’s first appearance (poster and ESC press release) at a medical conference is not to be. Wishing the medical professionals the very best in the fight against covid19.
Three papers presented at Computing in Cardiology 2019 in Singapore. Applying music information research to cardiovascular science. Arrhythmia Suite featured at conference banquet.
A paper linking music rhythms to performed timings and arrhythmia is now published online (open access)—url: journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2059204318795159—in the Music & Science journal edited by Professor Ian Cross. This article documents many of the ideas underlying the ERC ADG COSMOS: Computational Shaping and Modeling of Musical Structures. Chew, E. (2018). Notating disfluencies and temporal deviations in music and arrhythmia. Music & Science, […]
Kosta, Katerina, Oscar F. Bandtlow, Elaine Chew (2018). MazurkaBL: Score-aligned loudness, beat, and expressive markings data for 2000 Chopin Mazurka recordings. In Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation (TENOR’18), 24-26 May 2018, Montreal, Canada. Large-scale analysis of expressive performance—with focus on how a performer responds to score markings—has […]

MacKie (ed.): New Thoughts on Piano Performance—Researching at the Interface between Science and the Art of Piano Performance. Kindle Amazon. ISBN 978-164007055-4. Abstract: How a performer hears a piece is the determining factor in […]
Smith, J. B. L., and E. Chew. 2017. Automatic interpretation of music structure analyses: A validated technique for post-hoc estimation of the rationale for an annotation. Proceedings of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference. Suzhou, China. 435–41. Annotations of musical structure usually provide a low level of detail: they include boundary locations and […]
Herremans D., Chew E. (2016). Tension ribbons: Quantifying and visualising tonal tension. In Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation (TENOR), 27-29 May 2016, Cambridge, UK. Tension is a complex multidimensional concept that is not easily quantified. This research proposes three methods for quantifying aspects of tonal tension based on […]
Chew, E. (2016). Playing with the edge: Tipping points and the role of tonality. In Stephen McAdams, David Temperley, Alexander Rozin (eds.): Milestones in Music Cognition Special Issue, Music Perception, 33(3):344-366. doi: 10.1525/MP.2016.33.03.344 This article focuses on the phenomenon of tipping points—a case of extreme pulse elasticity—in music performance, and the dynamic interplay between tonal […]
Smith, J. B. L., I. Schankler and E. Chew (2014). Listening as a Creative Act: Meaningful Differences in Structural Annotations of Improvised Performances. Music Theory Online 20.3. [ Journal source ] Abstract Some important theories of music cognition, such as Lerdahl and Jackendoff’s (1983) A Generative Theory of Tonal Music, posit an archetypal listener with an ideal interpretation […]
Smith, J.B.L. and E. Chew (2013). Using Quadratic Programming to Estimate Musical Attention from Self-Similarity Matrices. In Proceedings of ACM Multimedia, October 21-25, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain. To identify repeated patterns and contrasting sections in music, it is common to use self-similarity matrices (SSMs) to visualize and estimate structure. We introduce a novel application for SSMs derived […]
