Presentation Transcript


1. The Virtual Conservatory presents ChordSymbol 2 and JazzSymbol 1 The Gold-Standard music analysis and lead-sheet fonts Developed by John R. Clevenger, Ph.D. Presented by J. Kent Williams, Ph.D. School of Music, UNC-Greensboro

2. ChordSymbol 2 Chord Symbol 2, a Unicode font (with TrueType component fonts for non-Unicode apps), was released in 2009. CS 2 has over 2200 special characters and is infinitely extensible. We welcome user suggestions for additional characters and will incorporate them into future upgrades. CS 2 is ideally suited to instructional applications, since users can employ it without anything getting “lost in translation.”

3. ChordSymbol 2 Totally redesigned Unicode font package. Unicode is a robust font technology based on an international standard. Unicode fonts can handle up to 100,000 characters. All Unicode characters map the same on both Mac and Windows in any Unicode-compliant application. Users can switch freely between CSTwo and CSThree. Both fonts provide a wide range of symbols used in classical music and jazz/commercial music. Many can be entered with a single click.

4. ChordSymbol 2 Base font: Times New Roman. Formal-looking serif font, appropriate for traditional music. Provides symbols for Roman-numeral and Schenkerian analysis; figured bass; commercial music. Ultra-high-quality workmanship – everything is point-perfect to 1/2048th of an em.

5. ChordSymbol 2 CSTwo Provides two rows of figured-bass symbols Useful in text documents; does not alter line spacing CSThree Provides three rows of figured-bass symbols Can be used in text documents but may alter line spacing Both fonts contain the entire alphabet and all characters needed for Western European languages. Certain less-used keyboard characters (@#$%&) have been remapped so that careted scale-degree numbers, accidentals, and other common music analysis symbols may be conveniently entered using the keyboard (view PDF flyer and Character Map). Examples: QT excerpts with harmonic analysis

6. ChordSymbol 1 Symbol entry Mac OS 10.6 – use Character Viewer (Palette in 10.5) Windows – use Character Map, or type four-digit Unicode followed by Alt-x Use PopChar application (Mac or Windows) Text-based documents Word for Macintosh 2008 (QT demo) Music notation applications Finale (using TrueType font) (QT demo) Sibelius (QT demo) NoteAbility Pro (QT demo)

7. 7 ChordSymbol 1 Graphics applications Fireworks CS4 (QT demo) Illustrator Multimedia authoring applications Flash CS4 - synchronized analysis using dynamic text

8. JazzSymbol 1 JazzSymbol 1, due for imminent release, is the result of input from numerous professional commercial musicians. Ideal for lead sheets and other commercial composition/arranging purposes and for teaching popular music, especially jazz Provides over 1000 special symbols for single-click entry of even the most complex combinations Functions identically on Windows and Mac OS X Unicode font with TrueType component; works in any application Based on Arial Narrow for a compact, pleasing, informal look View PDF flyer, Character Map, and QuickTime movie example
