Hu introduced the concept of moments of images into the pattern recognition field in 1962 [5].
For decades, researchers have extended the concept of moments in various ways.
The excellence of moments is that we can construct invariants of images from them for object recognition.
We encapsulate the image function by another function in the definition of moments.
Moment 5 retains the registral positions of Moment 4 but--in transformation--reorders the pitches, exposing additional symmetries, integrating the result into the motivic web together with a new pitch, G[MUSICAL NOTES NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
