Session 6 - 20.06.20 - From Nothing (Part 2)


Recommended Posts

Hi Stephane - I am having a problem in the ;;; INSTRUMENTATION & SECTIONS ASSEMBLY of the "From nothing-Pt2" score.  Whenever I evaluate one of the lines in this section  I get the following error message from the listener: "Error: Not a pitch symbol (q)"  , where (q) could also be (w) or (-q.)  as the first value in any given  evaluated line of that section.   If I try to preview score it shows the same error message.  Have spent some time trying to debug,   any idea what it may be?

thanks!  Peter

Hi Stéphane - Tried with the new file and same problem.  Rebooted Opusmodus no luck.  Rebooted the whole system and did an Evaluate All on the new file.  Got this message when it was done:  

"pitch-transpose, transpose: 12 ambitus: piano section: nil exclude: nil
> Error: Not a pitch symbol (q).
> While executing: examine-pitch, in process Listener-1(7).
> Type cmd-. to abort, cmd-\ for a list of available restarts.
> Type :? for other options."
 

Essentially the same problem ...might these "compiler warnings"  I have been seeing all along in the Listener have anything to do with it?

I am wondering if I am not making some really basic beginner error - e.g. when previewing from "ps"  I use the same right-click "Evaluate and Audition and Notation" command as for "def-score"?

(btw I am running OSX 10.12.6 btw on a 6-core 2009 MacPro  - just in case 🙂

 

thanks for your responses

Peter

Peter you don't need to do "Evaluate and Audition and Notation", that's your problem.

 

you just need to evaluate (cmd+E) the last ps parenthesis.

 

you can also use evaluate-all to evaluate the full score.  But don't use the evaluate and notation or midi stuff with ps..

Still not working, Stéphane.   I'll keep playing with it and maybe we'll have time to discuss after Zoom on Saturday.   All lines evaluate just fine except the setf flute, clarinet etc with the pitch-transpose and assemble parentheses.   A great learning template but frustrating not to be able to preview. 

best,

 

Peter
