Dear All, I´m looking for some way of retrieving musical information from sets of notes. Some problems, for example: 1) This is the first and more needed now: Given some UNORDERED amount of pitches, how retrive the prime form and/or Forte Number. 2) How to do this from an existing midi file or XML ? Is t possible to retrive the forte number of every "n" notes of the pitch collection (melody or chord)? 3) Can you circunscribe some notes for analysis in a large file ? Thanks, everyone ! Best, Julio
Dear Friends In my Doctoral Dissertation, I converted every FORTE number in a modulo 12 Rhythm via time-point-system. There is a complete catalog included (see the link below). It's in portuguese. After Janusz adjusted the Forte numbers to have the inversion, using "a" and "b" to differentiate the prime forms from the inversions, it was easy to convert using codes like this: (setf ch0 (time-point-system (pcs '5-11b :pitch)'s :start 0)) (setf ch1 (time-point-system (pcs '6-33 :pitch)'s :start 1)) (setf ch2 (time-point-system (pcs '7-11b :pitch)'s :start 2)
