Re: Philosophy of Music Notation

OCTO, I've had an eBay alert for Notations 21 for years, but it's always way out of budget whenever it pops up! Yes, it was really a limited run, and quickly it was sold out. I was lucky and bought I think for 80USD, new. Thanks for the pictures, good to explore. Sorry, what is next to Karkoschka? ...

Is anyone aware of with whom this might live?
I have done the arrangement of Libertango for full orchestra.
You have to find who is the © representative in your country. As the first step, get in touch with Edizioni Curci who is © holder of "Libertango". https://www.edizionicurci.it/

Re: Philosophy of Music Notation

I think Alan means more "philosophy" rather than "techniques" of music notation. But I believe that the term "philosophy" could include as well aesthetic, psychology, visual perception etc. (etc= rhetoric, dogma, math, geometry, what else...?)

Re: Introducing Sovietta!

A very nice capture, indeed, congratulations Josh!
Is the font complete, such as Maestro (compatible)?

Another is an academic research by Matthias Sköld (otherwise a member here too):

Re: Philosophy of Music Notation

A very nice idea! It would be more than helpful to add the ISBN / ISMN for each book, than it is easier to find. The book from Andrea Valle I haven't seen before, and would definitely love to explore, thank you for that. Just what it comes first to my mind is an extravagant book I have, perhaps not ...

The client literally just wants to design clefs that are different enough to be distinct.
Ouch! But the client doesn't know that designing brand new clefs requires designing brand new all other symbols, a complete font. :geek:

Re: Feedback and suggestions on hand-drawn clefs

I’m working only in Dorico now, so I can’t use the Finale fonts until they become SMuFL (which I think is in the works). My preference would be to use Bravura for the majority of the music font, including the accidentals. We’ll see if we can design a treble and bass clef that are distinct, but that...

Re: Feedback and suggestions on hand-drawn clefs

That being said, it definitely doesn't match the flats. Yes, definitely not the same style. The flats look like Sonata or Petrucci. I would definitely not mix the styles at all. Having an old style clef plus a razor sharp accidental doesn't look well. The Swedish Church has printed several times th...
