AbstractMusic capability is universal across human cultures. Every human being is able to make sense of a sound sequence, and emotional states are evoked. This research work concerns the appearance of musical capacity, particularly, the early melodic representations looking forward its computational modelling. This way, we propose a review of the existent literature intended to contextualize the appearance of musical capacity, particularly, the early melodic representations and also an organization of the information collected looking forward the conceptualization of its computational modelling. Finally, a general analysis is done over the whole research work, looking for to point a direction towards future work. This research work was developed in the context of the Master Program in Information, Communication and Audiovisual Media Technologies and the author was integrated in the EmCAP Project.
