Ah, from here I found one of the authors I was looking for: Guerino Mazzola. If you look him up on google scholar, his entire book on topoi and music has been scanned as a part of the google books project. I've wanted to give my wife a reason to learn a bit of algebra and category theory, and this book may be the proper motivation.
Oops, my mistake: chunks of the book are available this way. Random segments of 20-30 pages in length are missing all throughout the text. A clever way to make someone want to buy the book!
