Dear Prof. Soderberg

I read your current article.

regarding this sentence from the article:
"In my next post I'll review a list of what I understand to be MTT's  
basic, mostly unexamined assumptions. "

*I think the assumption that is most to blame for holding back MTT is  
a follows*:

     "Music can be modeled as patterns of notes"

Of course, there has-been and still-is value in note-centric modeling  
in music. But (speaking as a scientist), this model has many  
shortcomings, especially with contemporary music (serious and popular).
