Repeat and cresecendo

Post by OCTO » 17 Dec 2016, 11:05

I have one measure to repeat unspecified number of times but in order to get from pppp to p. How to notate it?
If I put repeat symbol and crescendo, it can be understood as numerous times crescendo every time the repetition begins.

Is this a possibility? - a hairpin that goes on past the end-of-bar repeat sign into a further written out repetition of that bar and finishing with p at the end of that bar.

You'd also need to have some indication along the lines of ‘repeat ad lib through crescendo’ (or its equivalent in Italian) over the bar that has an undefined number of repetitions.

Hm John, that is also quite interesting, the only problem is that I need to reach p at the end of that repeat, not in the next measure.
I think that the language barierre is the most problematic. Usin David's ‘repeat ad lib through crescendo’, or better ‘repeat ad lib through crescendo until p’ is perhaps the most exact what I want to achieve.

PS John, what is the text font you use?

My solution would be to write pppp cresc. p under the repeated bar (or the same with a hairpin), and then in a footnote:
"gradual crescendo through repetitions"
