I'm even inventing a new clef!!! A clef where the player decides which clef he/she play in - this is where the confusion starts!!!!

They can play it in the Treble, Bass, Tenor, Alto, Soprano, Mezzo-Soprano, etc.

Oh what fun! :wink:

When it comes to composition I have written only really programmatic stuff before (where most of my work has come from) - certainly not bereft of unusual notation, but generally not used.

Actually, new notations are great for programmatic use - good for notating certain effects if no other notation can do the job!

:lol:

True true, but I find it works equally well if not better if contemporary stuff. Don't ask me though, I'm not a specialist composer, I just do it from time to time. The man to speak to about new notation is Rob Newton (aka Curiosity Kills) ... he does some really wacky stuff with his work! :)

why would you give them a glossary? from my (admittedly EXTREMELY limited) experience it's all about how the players interpret what is put in front of them. Which is why you need very good players who can think musical ideas in their head and transfer that directly to their instrument (ie. not me)

So in your opinion, players should not play what the composer intended? (playing a little devil's advocate here :))

Being a composer, I would have to say yes.

But that really only applies to music which is more clear cut. Things like dynamics and stuff, conductors should just leave them well alone. ;)

In Aleratoric (spelling?) or 'chance music' the possibilities there are obvious for performer interferance, as with improvisation.




A glossary would be needed because we are basically talking about new notation symbols.
