For an intro on how this sort of spectral manipulation can work, I might suggest a classic book: William Sethares's Tuning, Timbre, Spectrum, Scale. (There are more recent books on this topic, but Sethares gives a reasonable intro to many of the issues, including timbral manipulation and its effects on consonance and dissonance.).

    Look at Dora Hanninen's book A Theory of Music Analysis: On Segmentation and Associative Organization if you can. It is not specifically designed for timbre, but it is extremely flexible and can be useful in describing timbre.

Additional to the answer from topo morto I'd like to mention the book “Tuning, Timbre, Spectrum, Scale” from W. Sethares [1]. Beside others, it describes the construction of scales and tone systems for timbres with inharmonic spectra. Even though it is mainly a place theoretic approach I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work also with.
