    In writing Fundamentals of Music Processing, Meinard Müller has created an essential handbook for the music information retrieval (MIR) community. There are alternative choices for those seeking to expand their knowledge in this arena, and who are looking for a text which adopts a computational approach to music concepts and sound analysis. For example the recent Computational Music
    Analysis (David Meredith, ed.) by the same publisher. However Müller’s book is clearly positioned as a text book, and the author expresses his hope that it will be of use to researchers, lecturers and students of a topic for which he has a clear and infectious enthusiasm. This aim is emphasised by the structure and content of the book, which covers a range of important and popular music processing topics, and strikes a balance between providing succinct and informative background theory and
    discussing applied examples in the context of real-world problem solving.
