Composing Music on Paper and Computers


Paper is preferred and utilized far more than computers in the composer’s music creation cycle because it is the natural medium in which music notation convention is learned. Current music notation software utilizes only WIMP interfaces (Windows, Icon, Menus and point and click).

This recognized pen gesture data has the potential of being imported into a popular musical notation composition program for editing purposes.
