Time is written proportionally. Durations are indicated by note flags and stemless noteheads, including dotted values, at 60 beats per minute. Above each bar is its duration in seconds for reference.
As an ensemble, agree on a pitch center. If the same pitch is not possible on all instruments, octave transposition is allowed. All pitch is relative to the chosen pitch center, notated as .
Per each note in a phrase or single attack, a performer may choose a quarter-tone (or other microtone) pitch from the given range of accidentals, relative to the pitch center.
For example, if the pitch center is D and the given range is [ – ], a musician may choose from C/D, D, D, or D for each note in the phrase.
