tScore: Makes Computers and Humans Talk About Time

Markus Lepper, Baltasar Trancón y Widemann

Abstract

Textual denotation of temporal data, i.e. parameter histories indexed by time, can be a challenge. In different domains very different notation systems have been developed for pen and paper, esp. serving the requirements of real-time practice, like graphical schedules, kinetographic notation systems, scenarios, and, as the most complex example, music in the sense of CWN, Conventional Western Notation. These systems work with symbolic representation of activities and combined expressional and spatial representation of time. In contrast, existing computer readable formats are quite different, either as simple list formats, or as expression languages. "tscore" bridges the gap between these two worlds as a notation suited for reading and writing by both humans and computers, based on the experiences of centuries of notation evolution. It combines spatial representation of time, full parametrization of all parameter scales, as well as the time model itself, and arbitrary embedded expression structures,
