Computer sound generating programs have produced sound sequences for several years. Originally, each note in the sequence was described by numerical parameters punched into a computer card. A listing of these cards provided a score for the composition, but one which was hard to read and impossible to follow along with the sounds. Recently, a method was developed for composing scores in graphical form. The graphical notation was convenient, not only for composing but also for reading while listening to a sound sequence. Hence it seemed appropriate to devise automatic methods of plotting a note-for-note graphical score of the computer generated sequences. Standard microfilm plotting equipment available on the computer could be used for this purpose. Thus, only a new program had to be written.
