New music notation font

• Jul 15, 2013 - 09:45

Hi everyone,

I have been making a new music notation font. Parnassus is a haskell program I am making for
experimenting with music layout, but there hasn't been much progress. But I have a useable font,
and Nicolas has helped me porting it to MuseScore. It's not complete, but it has all the basic glyphs.
You can read more about it on my website:

Ooooh, I really like the accidentals in the Parnassus drafts/examples, they're not as hole-y/open and with more defined strokes.

I don't quite like the bleeding, though... guess I'll stick to MScore (Emmentaler) for now, I've been looking at musical fonts tonight and, given that even creators of alternatives praise it, and it looks "larger", not as filligrane, making it easier to read during a performance, really helps (though I never liked its natural accidental at all).
