Re: MusicXML schema for music lessons

Michael, I think the excerpt from Peter's reply below expresses my point of view perfectly. I would only add that there is not likely to be any well-defined notion of "HTML + CSS + MusicXML" until MusicXML becomes an open standard that is part of the web. ...Joe Why doesn't something like HTML + CSS...

Re: MusicXML schema for music lessons

I would suggest that these needs could be answered by a new kind of textual element that acts rather like a system of staves from the page-layout point of view: it is interpolated into the music's vertical flow of systems down the page. This is a generally useful concept that goes beyond "music...

Re: Normal notehead with Whole Notes

Actually, I believe it's the case that a notehead element *must* be generated for a colored note, since there is no other way to supply a color for it. I am surprised that there's no color attribute for the overall note element in MusicXML, but there doesn't seem to be. Each piece of the note must b...

Re: Arbitrary musical form specifications

I haven't checked to see if Sibelius 7's built-in MusicXML exporter includes this information. The current release, at least, it does not seem to. These are very important issues, but they don't get solved by changes at the format level - unless the format has gaps that need to be filled. I agree c...

Re: Arbitrary musical form specifications

Thanks, that's a big clarification. I didn't realize that your view of the <sound> elements was that they were quite as abstract as that. But this doesn't clear up our troubles. Scores one sees in the real world -- including many coming from Dolet -- are often omitting the <sound> element altogether...

Re: Arbitrary musical form specifications

Hi Joe, I understand the attraction of the measure number roadmap. However, I think you can already represent everything you need to create the roadmap in MusicXML 3.0, independent from visual notation features if you like. Similarly, a roadmap can be exported to MusicXML 3.0. To me, a roadmap is a...

Re: Arbitrary musical form specifications

Michael, I have some repertoire examples although the ones I am currently working with cannot be shared on this list for copyright reasons. I think I failed to clarify the root problem, which is this: many scores use textual instructions to communicate musical form, and score editors typically do no...

Arbitrary musical form specifications

Hi Michael, What is your current thinking on the ability for MusicXML to optionally express an arbitrary playback order for measures in a score? A number of notation packages including Noteflight and Sibelius permit arbitrary playback order independent of the notated form. So it would be helpful to ...

Re: stanza numbers

This feature would be extremely helpful for the future. Putting such text into the syllable creates justification problems, as it alters the center-alignment of the lyric with respect to the note above it. But putting the text outside the syllable destroys the semantic connection between the text an...

Re: Sound design rationale: top-level categories

Michael, I have been reading the various responses to the sound proposal with great interest. I find a few points in Hartmut's last email that resonate strongly for me: - Acceptance by sound and software providers is key to the success of this effort. - Acceptance by human taxonomists is not so impo...
