tension; music annotation

Abstract
Expectation is an important mechanism in shaping the affective experience of music. Central to this process is the concept of musical tension. The temporal evolution of tension during a piece of music is not only responsible for eliciting emotions but may form the basis for novel time-aware search queries in music information retrieval. This paper introduces a method of modelling musical tension based on automatically computed measures of musical complexity, psychoacoustics and musical structure. The approach involves examining time-continuous annotations of tension and constructing models with a number of regression algorithms. Highest performing models when evaluated with the R2 statistic reached 0.68 with Multiple Linear Regression in a 5 dimension feature space. When independently evaluated on unseen music data the system produced an R2 of 0.64.
