This chapter discusses work done in the area of music scene analysis (MSA). Generally, scene analysis is viewed as the transformation of information from a sensory input (physical entity) into concepts (psychological or perceptual entities). Therefore, MSA is defined as a process that converts an audio signal into musical concepts such as notes, chords, beats, and rhythms. Related tasks include music transcription, pitch tracking, and beat tracking; however, this chapter focuses on the auditory scene analysis (ASA) related aspect of this process and does not explore the issues of pitch and beat tracking. An important idea related to this is the distinction between physical and perceptual sounds, as explained in Section 10.1.3 below.
