1 GUIDO Music Notation Jordan Smith MUMT January 2008

2 Overview GUIDO is a music notation language. 1. GUIDO’s goals 2. How GUIDO notates music 3. How GUIDO engraves music 4. GUIDO applications: –Gide –NoteServer –SALIERI –MIR 5. Pros and Cons of GUIDO

3 Guido d’Arezzo Credited with inventing music notation Image source:

4 1. Neumatic Notation Image source:

5 2. Conventional Music Notation Image source:

6 3. Modern Engraving Image source:

7 4. GUIDO Music Notation { [\title \tempo \staff \clef \key \meter \i d2/8 | \sl(\dim(d h1)) h \sl(\dim(h g)) g \sl(\cresc(f# a c2)) \sl(c h1) ], [ \staff \clef \key \meter _/8 | h1 _ _ g _ h0 \sl(c1 f# a) \sl(a g)] } Example source:

8 1. GUIDO’s goals Adequacy: –Simple musical concepts are simple to encode –Only more complex concepts are complicated to encode

9 Adequacy Renz 2002 p. 9, 18

10 1. GUIDO’s goals Adequacy: –Simple musical concepts are simple to encode Human readability

11 Music G 2 C 4 4 whole [ \clef \meter c/1 ] Source:

12 1. GUIDO’s goals Adequacy: –Simple musical concepts are simple to encode Human readability Perfect formatting Multifunctional

13 2. Notation Basic Notation Advanced Notation Extended Notation

14 2. Notation Basic notation [ Sequences ] { Segments } c do d&& bis1*1/4 \clef all together: [ \slur( f g {f/2, a2, c}) ]

15 2. Notation Advanced notation \slurBegin:1 … \slurEnd:1 \clef \glissando

16 2. Notation Extended notation Micro-tonal features Exact timing User-defined GUIDO tags and events

17 3. Engraving Translation between abstract representation (AR) and graphical representation (GR) GUIDO file > (parse) > AR > (physics) > GR

18 3. Engraving Renz 2002 p. 88

19 3. Engraving Renz 2002 p. 94

20 3. Engraving Renz 2002 p. 97

21 4. Applications: NoteServer (and NoteViewer) Quickly create passages of music for any purpose: pedagogy, WEB, etc.

22

23 4. Applications: Gide A syntax highlight editor for GUIDO files

24

25 4. Applications: SALIERI A structure-oriented environment for composition, manipulation, and analysis of music. (Think MATLAB.)

26 Hoos, Kilian et al. 1998

27

28 4. Applications: MIR abilities Step 1. Create database using PERL (GUIDO is text-based) Step 2. Pre-calculate transition probability matrices for absolute pitch and rhythm of each element in database Step 3. Hierarchically cluster pieces Step 4. Search!

29 5. Pros and Cons of GUIDO i.Incomplete, and inactive since 2003 –Extended notation and postscript output of NoteViewer are missing ii.Is being human-writable an asset? iii.Poor at representing the vertical and horizontal simultaneously i.Translates to and from major formats: XML, Finale, Sibelius. ii.Perhaps not for authoring, but it is certainly human-editable iii.…like every other computer- based format! Plus, it’s complete. …but…

30 Question period!
