The Science Behind Musical Taste
Date:5/21/2010

genres -- rock, blues, bossa nova and reggae -- in search of the most representative rhythm sequences.

Once such sequences were identified, the authors found they were then able to classify all the songs by these distinctive rhythm patterns.

Such a rhythmic classification method, they suggested, gets more directly to the heart of how people truly hear songs -- and why they choose the ones they like -- than does the traditional technique of slotting songs into one category or another (for example, jazz or rock).

The Brazilian team now hopes to look at other musical features, such as the intensity of musical beats, to see how else they might improve the way songs are classified in terms of listener preferences.
