Abstract -
The purpose of this study is to analyse the Western music notation system as a set of objects that act as computational representatives for notation symbols. The primary analytical method is the objectoriented analysis used in computer science. To improve coherency in the resulting analysis, I have extended standard object-oriented methodology with linear logic, a method also originating from computer science. The result of the study is a structural object model that describes the roles and relationships of objects found in music notation. This model can be used as a basis for computer software design. The intention of the study is to represent a theoretical description of music notation that can be used in the design process of a music notation computer program. Previous studies on the computerbased music notation have shown that the processing of music notation involves different types of information. Existing musical data representations serve as current examples of how the various types of information can be encoded and of the kinds of difficulties involved. This study is based on the assumption that a consistent object model can formed by including only those objects that have an explicit visual appearance; information belonging to levels or domains other than the visual one can be included as properties of visual objects.
