Description 1. Background. The measure of Similarity in Music is based on different types of information related to specific approaches: symbolic (musicological analysis of scores, texts, historical information as well as numerical methods applied on scores, MIDI codes, etc.); acoustic (audio sig-nal analysis, frequency spectrum etc.) and subjective (theo-retical investigations and experimental results). There are several mathematical models that offer computational tools for music similarity (restricted to the melodic one). Unfor-tunately, comparisons with psychological experiment are missing. Moreover, up to our best knowledge, the applica-tions are strongly restricted to few examples. 2. Aims. We attack the similarity problem in music by using theoretical mathematical techniques appropriate to measure nearness between points or sets as in (digital) Image Processing,
