copyist, translation and transcription services
An individualized æsthetic approach to each score assures coherence between all textual and graphical elements. The appearance of every score prepared by shirling & neueweise exhibits detailed consideration of the specificities of the music and its notation — reflecting, in some cases, characteristics of the composers handwriting — rather than being subject to a blanket house style.
- preparation of scores from the composers manuscript, from existing finale or sibelius files, from MIDI data, from existing files created with other notation programmes;
- musical examples for theses, analyses, journals, articles, etc.;
- part extraction from existing scores;
- aesthetic enhancements to existing scores;
- international phonetic alphabet (IPA) for text and/or lyrics.
Software used: Finale, Sibelius.
View examples representing a variety of æsthetic and notational approaches, from a “classical” “Beethovenian notation” look through to individualized modern notation styles and proportional and graphic notation.
