Abstract This paper takes a look at computer music modeling and information retrieval (CMMIR) from the point of view of the humanities with emphasis upon areas relevant to the philosophy of music. The desire for more interdisciplinary research involving CMMIR and the humanities is expressed and some specific positive experiences are cited which have given this author reason to believe that such cooperation is beneficial for both sides. A short list of some contemporary areas of interest in the philosophy of music is provided, and it is suggested that these could be interesting areas for interdisciplinary work involving CMMIR. The paper concludes with some remarks proffered during a panel discussion which took place near the end of the Pisa conference on September 28, 2006 and in correspondence inspired by this discussion, together with some brief commentary on the same. An earlier, somewhat short version of the present paper provided the impetus for said panel discussion.
