open-source decision making (2020-09-13 07:44:00)

The abc notation community needs to find a new mailing list, since Yahoo Groups is discontinuing support.

Step one: when to vote? And on what text? Which option to include in the poll? Let’s have a look at the current discussion-tree:

Of course we haven’t settled on everything yet, but apparently the poll will happen via a Google Form (or email message, if you prefer not to use Google).

I have played two great little titles lately, both free software:

who cares if I listen? (2020-06-14 20:21:00)

After some labiorious days, I finally completed it: Who cares if I listen? A study of dodecaphonic music enjoyment.

Thanks to everyone who helped, it is an article I have wanted to write since a long time.

Dodecaphonic experiment (2020-05-27 08:00:01)

I am running a small experiment on present-day dodecaphonic music appreciation.

If you have a few minutes — three, no longer than that — please take the dodecaphonic survey.

As with every statistical inference, the bigger the sample, the higher the chance of finding a significant result. So consider sharing it with your classical-lovers friends and on social media!

Minuet diversi (2019-12-23 07:44:00)

Recently I was procrastinating by checking out an old handwritten music volume. It is a compilation of Harpsichord pieces, authored by famous musicians for a Venetian noble-woman, Maria Venier.

The score is unpublished, and probably unperformed since the 1750s. I picked a simple minuet by Baldassarre Galuppi, here is what it sounds like:

writing-strategies (2019-10-27 08:38:00)

Recently I was looking for scientific articles on the differences between composing with a pen rather than a pencil (the latter becoming my writing instrument of choice after the former leaked on my suit).

The search returned empty handed, but one paper on “writing strategies and writers’ tool” was nontheless initriguing; let me share the findings with you.

First table displays the percentage of “frequent use” of writing tool X in different research areas. Keep in mind the article was published in 1993!

Then the author introduces a “writing strategies” variable; I find the descriptions of the different approaches to composing striking and amusing:

Finally, crosstabs of strategies/area and tools/strategies:
