I prefer the HOM approach, more OO-ish. I will try it up. Thanks for the info.

I don't know if this really fits your bill, but if you're just looking
for a concise way of manipulating collections, you could also try out
the higher-order messaging APIs in EtoileFoundation [0], which allow you
to do stuff like this:

[[pitches filter] isEqualToString: @"Do"];
[[[pitches filter] description] isEqualToString: @"Do"];

(Note that this requires pitches to be a mutable collection)
