Desain, P., & Honing, H. (1995). Music, Mind, Machine. Computational Modeling of Temporal Structure in Musical Knowledge and Music Cognition. Research proposal (unpublished manuscript).


The central purpose of the investigation is both to elaborate further the methodology for computational modeling and to show how this method can be instrumental in the understanding of the structure of musical knowledge and the processes involved in music cognition.

The study builds upon three disciplines: musicology, psychology and computer science. By starting from the margins where these approaches overlap, it aims at discovering innovative ways in which solutions can be found for problems which have proven so far to be unsolvable in a mono-disciplinary approach.
