This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Mathematics and Computation in Music, MCM 2015, held in London, UK, in June 2015. The 24 full papers and 14 short papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 64 submissions. The papers feature research that combines mathematics or computation with music theory, music analysis, composition, and performance. They are organized in topical sections on notation and representation, music generation, patterns, performance, similarity and contrast, post-tonal music analysis, geometric approaches, deep learning, and scales.
