This chapter investigates the modeling methods for musical cognition. The author explores possible relations between cognitive measures of musical structure and statistical signal properties that are revealed through information dynamics analysis. The addressed questions include: 1) description of music as an information source, 2) modeling of music-listener relations in terms of communication channel, 3) choice of musical features and dealing with their dependencies, 4) survey of different information measures for description of musical structure and measures of shared information between listener and the music, and 5) suggestion of new approach to characterization of listening experience in terms of different combinations of musical surface and structure expectancies.
