30 % seminar and beyond

Last year ended with a 30 % PhD seminar where I summarised my research on sound notation at this point, and what will be the next stage. The research can be studied further in these publications:

The notation example shows one short sound notated using most of the spectrum-oriented symbols to specify its timbre, speaking of which, I will be submitting an article on the notation of timbre shortly.

Otherwise, future research efforts will focus more on the use of the notation system in various musical settings, beginning with a chamber music piece for four musicians with a mixture of acoustic and electronic sound sources.
