Piano Note Clusters for Octaves
Hello! Lately I've been trying to write a large work that is lightly inspired by Lou Harrison's Reel (for piano) which is inspired by Henry Cowell's works (probably mostly "The Lilt of the Reel"). Harrison's work involves a lot of "palm" and "arm" clusters (as my piano teacher called them) and were notated as the notes of the octave(s) connected by two long thick lines. The only features I can find in Musescore that might allow me to create this are tedious because you have to build them (I was using the chord cluster "middles" to create these lines but they only span maybe like a third) and most of my piece is made of these clusters. Does anyone have any ways to get around this? If not, Musescore team, could you please take a look at Cowell's notation for his piano works and create a feature like that for Musescore? It would be much appreciated.
