paper by Sabat and Nicholson

Post by cmloegmcluin »

I hadn't come across this one, Fundamental Principles of Just Intonation and
Microtonal Composition by Thomas Nicholson and Marc Sabat, until just today, though it looks like it's been around since Sep. 2018: https://marsbat.space/pdfs/JI.pdf

I haven't had a chance to read through the whole thing yet, but I skimmed the notation section and it looks pretty great! HEJI being Sagittal's main competition aside... :)

Jeez. They have one Sagittal symbol in the whole paper. It's for the single most important comma. And they got it wrong! Figure 10 on page 16.

Oh dang! I read that section but I didn't look super carefully at the actual staff at the end. Do you think we should message them about it?

I did reach out to them re: the issue we found in HEJI for SMuFL or Bravura, whatever that was, and I never heard back from them.
