"Identical Indented Comments"  for Contrabassoon and Soprano Saxophone.


A new musical tablature attempting to base a workable theory of aural syntax on concrete tokens.

I have a suggestion to expand the scope of experimental tablatures. Philosophers use a range of tools. To mention just a few, these include logic, probability, game theory, economic modeling as well as computer simulations.

What if, as enlightened composers, we begin using the tools of cognitive science and experimental psychology to examine philosophical music questions. My suggestion with this composition, and moving forward, is to add data science to the catalogue of compositional tools.
