... to ground these schemas in a cognitive, listener-oriented framework, the article also introduces the concept of metrical orientation. Metrical orientation involves heard measures, measures that are organizationally similar to notated measures but that may differ from the notated measures of the score...

...Channan Willner Hemiolas are by definition metrically dissonant, in durational disagreement with the notated meter. But when extended metrical shifts (known also as afterbeats or afterbeat displacement ) displace a composition in part or in whole to the right (in order to emphasize the closing beat...

...Stephen Guerra Pitch spaces such as the circle of fifths model change through time in a composition, recording, or improvisation. Metric spaces theorized over the past twenty years do the same for changes (notated or not) in meter. Trajectories in either space and their potentially reinforcing...

...Scott Murphy The metric cube is a kind of graph of meters proposed as a complement to the types of metric spaces that have already been put forth in music-theoretic scholarship, particularly by Richard Cohn. Whereas Cohn's most recent kind of metric space (2001) can compare meters only...

...Brent Auerbach Tiered polyphony describes segments of music that manifest rhythmic/metric layering (Lester 1986) in the presence of polyphony. This texture, though a hallmark of the baroque era, is capable of generating a variety of musical effects over many style periods. This article establishes...
