Writing music with code

Admit it: You’ve been searching for a way to write music using a text editor!

You’ve used musical notation software long enough to be sick of its slow, sprawling screens of endless notes. And even if you haven’t, it must strike you as odd that we slavishly attempt to emulate pen and paper notation with our keyboards and micies.

Recently, I came across one language which bridges the gap between computing and musical notation.

Van der waals interaction

$$V_{LJ}( r ) = \frac{4 \epsilon \sigma ^{12} }{ r^{12} } - \frac{ 4 \epsilon \sigma^{6}}{ r^{6} }$$

becomes $$V_{LJ}( r ) = \frac{4 \epsilon \sigma ^{12} }{ r^{12} } - \frac{ 4 \epsilon \sigma^{6}}{ r^{6} }$$
