that version I tried to give a lot of illustrations, using rather kludgy
pointers both to scores and performed excerpts in mp3 files. In principle,
one could think of other forms of representation, e.g. an excerpt of a
score in Sibelius (or similar software) that is then reduced for
analytical purposes and rendered in some fashion.

potential in the discussions of music. Perhaps there is already a
discussion of this somewhere in the bowels of the council listserv, and I
