Using Musescore unconventionally
Several have questioned me about why I use Musescore to write "music" in an unusual way. To help answer this question, I converted one of my pieces that was discussed in a previous posting into conventional notation in Musescore. The unusually written piece was posted as::
Here is what the first page looks like in the notation I used to write the music:
And here is what it sounds like when played straight out of Musescore:
Here is the first page of the original score converted to conventional notation:
The conversion was done automatically: Musescore->midi->Notation Player->XML->Musescore
Here is the conventional notation played by Musescore "straight":

The conventional notation played "swing" just isn't recognizable.
I recently added this comment to the page I use to make the audio files of my "music" available:
These audio files are not meant to be "performance" quality renditions of these pieces. Rather, they are intended as a audio model of the music, just as sheet music is a visual model. The audio is intended to be used as a learning tool, such as using the computer to play one hand while learning the music with the other, or as an example for use in music appreciation or music theory study.
