Music Notation on the Internet: My article in the International Arts Manager magazine

on Fri, 04/20/2012 - 19:36

This month's issue of the International Arts Manager features an article that I wrote lamenting the state of music notation on the internet. When notation can be represented in text formats (such as MusicXML), why can't we display it in the browser, copy and paste it from website to website, and expect the browser to be able to render it? For that matter, why can't we ask the browser to simply play a C#? The internet is broken when it comes to music notation.
