It is well known that subsets of the two-dimensional space Z 2 can represent prominent musical and music-theoretical objects such as scales, chords and chord vocabularies. It has been noted that the major and minor diatonic scale form convex subsets in this space. This triggers the question whether convexity is a more widespread concept in music. The current paper systematically investigates the convexity for a number of musical phenomena among which scales, chords and (harmonic) reduction.
