Re: Music transcription

Dear Ali:

The following article may be of interest to you, as it is concerned with psychological processes underlying rhythm transcription:

Desain, P., & Honing, H. (2003). The formation of rhythmic categories and metric priming. Perception, 32, 341-365.

Hi Ali, 

Not the psychology literature per se, back to computer music, but Steve Hainsworth carried out an informal survey of human transcription tactics for his PhD thesis to compare these with automated approaches. 

The PDF of the thesis is available here under the cached PDF: http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi= 

John Sloboda does discuss Mozart's Miserere case, and you might also explore literature on musical savants.

Dear Colleagues,

I am currently studying on automatic music transcription but need to find research papers other than written in the framework of  Music Information Retrieval. 

However, I could not find much resource about manual transcription from the perspectives psychology of music, music education or music theory, etc.

I could only find papers on "notation reading" such as the one written by John Sloboda (in his book, "exploring the musical minds).

I would be grateful if anyone could suggest papers on manual transcription. (I have enough papers on the topic written by ethnomusicologists)

Best regards,
