October The editors of Computer! This interview was also reviewed in a slashdot story. Even more importantly, while LilyPond provides numerous hacks to improve the way its scores look, what the orchestra got from me is basically the raw, untouched output.

Virtually without exception, every composer has been blown away by the quality of the engraving when presented with the proofs of their music about to be published.

I deserve some of the credit for this — I spend a lot of time tweaking output, especially ties mainly in chords — but LilyPond gives me an excellent starting point, a very intuitive interface, and the ability to modify absolutely anything if I want to take the time. Passion because the first score I saw was so amazing! The description of LilyPond lies about its beautifulness, it is too modest! Anyway, what I mean is: thank you for providing LilyPond, it is really good.

Read about our Text input. The resulting output is viewed on-screen or printed. In some ways, LilyPond is more similar to a programming language than graphical score editing software. You do not write music by dragging notes from a graphical toolbar and placing them on a dynamically refreshing score; you write music by typing text.

People accustomed to graphical user interfaces might need to learn a new way of working, but the results are definitely worth it! Special commands are entered with backslashes. Alterations are made with different names: add -is for sharp, and -es for flat these are Dutch note names, other languages are available.

LilyPond figures out where to put accidentals. Pop music Put chords and lyrics together to get a lead sheet: Orchestral parts The input file contains the notes of piece of music.

One must always remember that this stroke is " khula " or an open stroke, therefore it must be very resonant. Ga may be difficult for the beginner. There is a tendency to strike the drum and withdraw the hand under conscious control.

Such action cannot be performed consciously. It is essential that the fingers and hand be relaxed the instant the drum is struck so that the hand can rebound of its own accord; like a ricochet. Only then can you hear the full open sound that characterizes this stroke.

Some players use only the middle finger. This is generally considered to be a very poor technique. This is another common technique. Although it is a bit weaker than our standard two finger technique, when used in conjunction with the two-finger Ga , one is able to attain high speeds. This Ga is played with the full open hand. This is generally used for special effects such as one might find in a Kathak recital. It is also the easiest to execute.

One simply strikes the bayan with the flat palm and fingers. Notice that the tips of the fingers extend slightly over the rim of the bayan. It is a flat slapping sound with no resonance, therefore it is called " band ". The most common version is shown in the illustration, however other forms exist. Its technique is basically the same, except the left hand is kept further back.

It is produced by holding the last two fingers lightly against the syahi and using the index finger to forcefully hit the rim chat or kinar of the tabla. It is important to keep the middle finger extended so as not to hit the drum. The correct position may be visualized by an " X " running across the drum.

This cross pattern is not imaginary but is a reflection of actual resonance characteristics. The position of this cross is determined by the ring finger and little finger. Sliding these fingers around will cause the position of the cross to vary. Maximum efficiency is produced when one strikes the chat at the position where the other leg of the cross passes over the rim.

This is shown in the accompanying illustration. There are several versions of this stroke. They are differentiated by the exact place of striking and whether the finger is allowed to rebound or not.

Occasionally one may find this stroke executed by muting with all of the last three fingers of the right hand; this however is considered to be very poor technique. This stroke has numerous names, especially when used as part of larger bol expressions.

Some common ones are Da , Ra and Ta.
