Re: Music on the Symbolics Machines

   Subject: Music on the Symbolics Machines
   We would like to find out if anyone out there has had any experience 
   with the Symbolics system entering, displaying and playing musical 
   scores.  The prospect would like to enter the musical notes via 
   some sort of "standard" interface (perhaps a MIDI file, if one 
   could be created, assumin there is such a thing as a file form of MIDI), 
   have the Symbolics display the full SCORE (as it might originally appear 
   on sheet music), and play the tune back, but highlighting the notes as 
   they are played, on the color screen, in order to later lay the frames 
   out on to video.
   If anyone has any suggestions, please forward information to

A guy I used to work with showed me a system called MUSED (Music
Editor), which, I believe, does alot of what you're looking for.  I
believe the system was developed at MIT by a graduate student (at
least that's what I thought my friend had said).  I know next to
nothing about Music, but it was pretty impressive.  Unfortunately, I
don't know the name of the guy who wrote it.  Also, I played with the
program on a TI Explorer, so I don't know if a Symbolics version
