 Musical notation - Cunnan
The ancestors of modern symbolic music notation originated in the Catholic church, as monks developed methods to put plainchant (sacred songs) to paper.
Although capable of expressing considerable musical complexity, they could not exactly express pitch or time and served mainly as a reminder to one who already knew the tune, rather than a means by which one who had never heard the tune could sing it exactly at sight.
These did not initially divide the music into measures of equal length (as most music then was far less rhythmic than in later periods), but appear to have been introduced as an aid to the eye for "lining up" notes on different staffs that were to be played or sung at the same time.

In 1995 we recorded our first album, Mode Plagal, which consists of original compositions and traditional pieces arranged by the group." Years of gigging followed, and the band are renowned for their impressive live performances at all sizes and sorts of venue.
In much Greek traditional dance music the musicians are required to make quick, clever variations on the tunes without departing from the metre and thereby throwing the dancers into confusion; the Cretan, Kostas Moundakis, was a great master of this of this kind of improvising.
With so many musical roads to choose from I wondered what the band's next steps were "Our plans for the immediate future involve recording an album in Istanbul with the group Bosphorus, which consists of Turkish classical and traditional musicians, with original compositions of the members of both groups based on poems about Istanbul.

 About Robyn's Iranian Dance video
Many of the names of these principal Persian musical modes have geographic contexts (e.g., place names, etc.), and expert opinion generally agrees it is at least possible that this may indicate that these musical modes have origins in ancient folk music from the named regions.
The music for the dance piece that follows the recitation of the poem is in the older, slower version of the reng form, and is an improvisation built around musical themes I learned from recordings of Majd and Banan.
The complete performance includes about ten minutes of music and singing that is not shown on this video (but is included on an audio CD by Morteza Varzi that is available for purchase through Robyn -- drop her an EMail if you are interested).

 Comments on 6444 | Ask MetaFilter
The languages of music and emotion are remarkably similar; indeed, the link between musical mode and emotional mood has been the subject of philosophical inquiry and censorious dogma for centuries.
Certain modes of music were to be kept out of Plato's ideal State because they evoked sorrowful or ungraceful or indolent feelings (Socrates: "When modes of music change, the fundamental laws of the State always change with them").
The musical mode considered least dissonant (and thus most standard) in our Western tradition is the major mode, which is often equated with positive emotions, such as happiness, triumph, and love.

It is a priceless piece of work because it combines musical tradition, as it has been formed over the centuries by the greatest musicians, with the latest technology and all the possibilities that computer technology offers.
It is a watershed in the development of Byzantine music, and generally of Oriental music, since it conveys all the rules and the tradition of Byzantine and Oriental music through the computer to the final user, making the computer the single musical instrument which combines precision and usefulness.
Moreover, as an antidote to the dominance of European music, it acquires lasting value by opposing the music culture of uniformity and repudiation of musical heritage and it contributes to the renewal of the authentic musical tradition which is the bearer of a glorious civilization of many centuries.

 Nıbuzıgu: A Musical Conlang
Nıbuzıgu is a constructed tonal language designed to use musical scales for expressing mood (whether a clause is command, a proposition, a wish or a question), and to express which word is verb, which is subject, which is object.
