salience of pitch-time patterns

For your interest here are the two main replies I got to my recent
enquiry to the list. I asked if  anyone is estimating the SALIENCE of
perceptual groupings within the auditory scene, on the basis either of
experimental data or of model outputs. No-one is doing exactly what I
had in mind, but there is a lot of closely related work.
