De-Re-Midi: Text-Based Musical Notation.

Neatorama reader Craig Conley wrote us about Do-Re-Midi: the Funkamentals of a Text-Based Musical Notation:

Do-Re-Midi allows musical ideas, melody lines, riffs, arrangements, and even full scores to be easily shared via e-mail or other text-based (ASCII) English communication. Now, when a friend writes asking how that bass line of Eurythmics "Sweet Dreams" goes, you can type it out and save humming it over a long-distance call. Or you can compose a new song on an airplane when all you have is a PowerBook with a word processor. No special composing software or music font is needed. Each voice of a composition is typed as if in sentences using familiar and intuitive syllables, symbols, and phonemes. Novices can read Do-Re-Midi more easily than standard musical notation, as no more than a rudimentary familiarity with the musical scale is requisite.
