Surely, I wouldn’t say I don’t like robots (actually I don’t like a show).

But it seems we are going to loose something…

Benchmarking LilyPond

Browsed the Internet and have found Musical Information in Musicology and Desktop Publishing. And I liked to «benchmark» LilyPond a bit — how it would do this fragment:

So, i managed to type this score:

Of course, I mean «benchmarking» in sense of comparing with some «predefined quality». Take a look at ly — no tweaks but some fingering inside slurs and some \fs put down.

Well, some of elements are unknown to me ;-)

But i like LilyPond very much :-)

Huh, and this is a midi for the fragment.

Here is a (as for me) really difficult test for Lilypond. Requires 5 or 6 voices and some twidding to manage those horizontal spacing… That’s the main problem is not slurs. (hmm… what about pedals?..)

Home Computer — as seen in 1954

Scientists from the RAND corporation have created this model to illustrate how a «Home Computer» could look like in the year 2004. However, the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface and the FORTRAN language, the computer will be easy to use.


Actually it’s a joke.

We have published our second book

(if you read Ukrainian, please switch language for «more words»)

We (my wife and me, with our family, let’s say) have published our second book.

640 pages, a lot of scores, full colour photos. Prepared with TEX and lilypond (and Photoshop).
