Seminar on Music Notation & Computation on Music Notation & Computation

Computer music tools for music notation have long been restricted to conventional approaches and dominated by a few systems, mainly oriented towards music engraving. During the last decade and driven by artistic and technological evolutions, new tools and new forms of music representation have emerged. The recent advent of systems like Bach, MaxScore or INScore (to cite just a few), clearly indicates that computer music notation tools have become mature enough to diverge from traditional approaches and to explore new domains and usages.

This seminar takes place in the series of events organized by the AFIM Work Group (French Association of Musical Computing) on music notation issues. The group objectives is is to make an assessment of the music score mutations, induced by the contemporary practices, and to report on the state of the art of software tools for music notation.
