Hello all, I'm currently looking at frequency of occurrence/duration pitch counts occurring in real music. I know that this has been done in the past, but it seems to me that all reports have collapsed across pitch class. I'm interested in counts that don't do this. With the sample of compositions I've looked at so far, I get a fairly steep curve that is centred around middle-C -- e.g., these notes are played the most and for the longest durations. I have plans to proceed with these counts in order to achieve a representative sample. However, before investing any serious amount of time, I thought I should check with the list to be sure this hasn't already been done. Has it? Any idea is welcome. Thanks, Frank. ----------------------------------------------- Frank A.
