One of the important processes that gives rise to sequential objects is segmentation. For a theoretical treatment of this in music, see Lerdahl and Jackendoff's grouping preference rules. For an experimental attempt at their demonstration, see I. Deliege (1987) Music Perception, 4, 325-360. This study also pitted the different factors that Lerdahl & Jackendoff dreamt up against one another, though it didn't control for the relative amount of discontinuity introduced by each one in a systematic way. There's a lot to be done from these two sources either within or without a musical orientation. Stephen McAdams
