Abstract—Music informatics, especially study of musical rendition models is one of the most important areas in computer science and artificial intelligence. In order to investigate and develop musical rendition models, musical expressions of piano performances using hierarchical tonal tension rules have been analyzed by the authors. The rules are very complicated and hence it is hard to analyze large amount of music pieces. In this article musical expression is analyzed using sequential tension rules which are very simpler than the hierarchical ones. The results of the analyses by these two kinds of rules are also compared. From these comparisons, some notable results are obtained, i.e. though the results of the analyses in hierarchical rules are more precise than ones in sequential ones, the results in the latter are also useful to construct musical rendition models.
