The Musical Contour literature provides multiple algorithms for melodic contour similarity. However, most of them are limited in use by the melody length of input data. In this paper I review these algorithms, propose two new algorithms, compare them in three experiments with contours from the Bach Chorales, from a Schumann song and automated generated, and present a brief review of the contour and similarity literature.
