Even though the number of publications regarding the application of the fuzzy logic to music is low, due to the nature of the music theory, it is appropriate to apply fuzzy based reasoning for the problems in music. These problems can be musical harmonization, improvisation, and even composition. The applicability of fuzzy logic to such problems is due to its power for the representation of human perception. Going to extremes, in this proceeding, we propose the idea of capturing the desire of the arranger/composer (which is stated in the natural language) and mathematical representation of these stylistic and personal preferences in an automatic manner via the concept of ¿computing with words¿. Although the idea seems to be realizable for simple scenarios, certainly there exist numerous potential issues and challenges especially for the complex ones.
