On Different Methods of Notation

lily.jpgDavid Collins has written a short paper on different methods of notation which have evolved recently, and he thought that some readers here might be interested. The paper is available here.

The primary languages discussed are Mondrian, Abc notation, Csound, and Lilypond. The paper is not intended to be comprehensive. Collins hasn’t discussed other tools such as Philip’s Music Writer, or the various audio programming environments such as SuperCollider, Chuck and others.

The software discussed is not necessarily Linux-specific, but it is all FLOSS and available on Linux – and the information might be of interest to people who use Linux to compose music.

Collins welcomes feedback and corrections.

Open Web Award 2011

award.jpgOpen Web Award 2011 :: transmediale in collaboration with Mozilla have announced the creation of the new Open Web Award 2011, a special third platform for creative excellence alongside the transmediale Award 2011 and the Vilém Flusser Theory Award 2011.

The transmediale Open Web Award is a new platform for radical, creative and innovative art works and projects that: are on the web and about the web; that use open source, free, libre or other non-proprietary technology (may they be soft- or hardware); and that incite participation

They can be critical, celebratory or both. Projects should have the potential to demonstrate and/or objectively critique the potential of open web issues, and those employing the creative use of HTML5 and other developing ‘open’ technologies will be given specific consideration. The point is to play with both the idea and materiality of the (open) web in ways that spark new thinking and practice. Continue reading
