You ever think about how weird and good it is that there are no serious contenders to standard music notation?
Like, you don't even need to specify which one you use
If you ask, "Do you read music?" everyone knows what notation you're being asked about
@bgcarlisle I hadn’t, and that’s totally true. Unlike every other form of human communication. Huh.
@morganth I mean, I've seen sort of "novelty" alternate music notations used for single publications
But nobody is trying to start a new school around it or anything
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
