Abridged Summary:   “This article introduces a new method of data analysis that represents the playing of written music as a graph. The method…charts low-level note timings from a sound recording of a single-line instrument using high-precision audio-to-MIDI conversion software. Note onset times of pitch sequences are then plotted against the score-predicted timings to produce a Note-Time Playing Path (NTPP)…The NTPP can provide significant new insights into behaviour and cognition of music performance…”
