Digital Music Notation Transformation using XML
The basic problem this paper is dealing with is how to convert western music notations, written for chromatic instruments, into special tablatures for diatonic instruments. There are just a few software programs facing this problem, but with the lack of full automatic operation and flexibility. This was the main reason for the development of new data formats and a new transformation algorithm, which are more suitable for the mentioned problem. Combined in an accurate software architecture, the newly developed algorithm performs the transformation from a chromatic piece of music into a data format, which is representing a diatonic tablature.
