Workshop : Ljudmila, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Mainstream traditional music notation tools such as Finale, Sibelius sometimes just don't cut it when it comes to visually representing certain types of music. It is often easier to draw what you want by hand than to try and force these tools to do something they were not designed to do. OR perhaps you never learnt traditional music notation properly but have a more visual idea about how you would like to represent your musical construction.

In this workshop we will look at some approaches to creating graphical music notation using tools designed for drawing rather than tools created specifically for notating western classical music. In this short workshop (3 hours) we will introduce the vector graphics software Inkscape. We will cover some tips and tricks that are useful when realising visual representations of musical ideas and structures using this software. No advanced computers skills needed, just the ability to point, click and drag. The workshop would suit those engaged in the creation of experimental music that needs, for one of the many reasons, to be notated. You should bring a laptop with Inkscape already installed if possible - Inkscape is available for Linux, OSX and Windows. It would save some time if you can install Inkscape before the workshop but don't worry if you don't have time. http://inkscape.org/download/ Workshop places limited to 12. The workshop is supported and hosted by Ljudmila that means it's free of charge to you! BUT you *must* pre-book a place with the team at Ljudmila firstname.lastname@example.org You can email me email@example.com if you have any questions.
