memol - a music description language
memol is a music description language which features:
Essentially, a score is described as recursive compositions of two constructs: group "[…]" and chord "(…)".
Some musical elements like scale, chord and backing pattern can be described independently and composite them each other. "with" syntax enables (some of) them in a unified form. Expressions (note velocity, control change, …) are also described separately.
- Focused on musical composition
Language design and implementation help trial-and-error of musical composition well (in the future). Unlike score typesetting languages, memol also focused on describing time-dependent value used for MIDI control changes, etc.
