Re: Philosophy of Music Notation

Hi everyone, thank you for all your contributions. I apologise if I wasn't clear enough in my first post, but as @octo has explained I meant books and texts which deal more with the philosophical discussion of notation rather than techniques. Texts which explore the philosophers' view of notation ra...

Re: Scalable Vector Graphics (inkscape, illustrator)

@OCTO I would be very interested in seeing and hearing your own music. Is there somewhere online vendor or publisher I can find you?
If you don't wish to put your personal details in public you could send me a private message in the forum.

Re: Scalable Vector Graphics (inkscape, illustrator)

Re: Scalable Vector Graphics (inkscape, illustrator)

Actually, it is not the standard notation. It is not me who defines it, but it is defined by the music engraving standards found in numerous books of the standard notation practices. These books are written by scholars in the field of music notation. There are numerous dissertations and thesis on t...

Scalable Vector Graphics (inkscape, illustrator)

With the emphasis on applications and software such as Sibelius, Finale, lilypond, etc. I have found in my notational practice a move more towards using Adobe Illustrator to achieve more distinct notation.
