Music is well established for its effect on mood. As it had been established that mood sequences were a useful characterisation of mood (Jun et al, 2010), it was suggested that temporal sequences of musical features affected the mood of the music. Therefore, a method was proposed for the discovery, through pairwise sequence alignment, of sequences that were prevalent in music of a given mood. As this method was entirely based on reapplication of its component sub-methods, a test was proposed and performed where the alignment scores for these sequences were used as characteristic of the alignment success between the feature sequences in music of similar and dissimilar mood. A set of 9 pieces in three “clusters” of mood categories were characterised using a 42-dimensional feature space producing 42 features per piece that were then compared. It was concluded, in the light of the results, that the method showed promise but that the sample size was insufficient to draw any safe conclusion regarding the effectiveness of the pieces.
