Computer Modeling: a Study of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier
Why is fugue 15 in Book II of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier a statistical outlier in its incidence of single note attack points? Is it significant that fugue 11 from Book II is the most similar to the other fugues in terms of sounding harmonic interval percentages (using Pearson Correlation as a metric)?
