Number of Active Voices

REPRESENTATION

vox# — representation of number of concurrently active voices

DESCRIPTION

The vox# representation permits the representation of the number of notes sounding together at successive moments in time. The vox# representation distinguishes just two types of data tokens: number-tokens, and barlines. Each vox# number-token consists of a single integer value indicating the total number of simultaneously sounding voices.

Barlines are represented using the "common system" for barlines — see barlines.

FILE TYPE

It is recommended that files containing predominantly vox# data should be given names with the distinguishing `.vox' extension.

SIGNIFIERS

The following table summarizes the vox# mappings of signifiers and signifieds.


0-9 integer values; measure numbers = barline; == double barline ; pause (for barlines) —– ———————————
