Abstract

We introduce a simple music notation system based on onomatopoeia. Although many text-based music notation systems have been proposed, most of them are cryptic and much more difficult to understand than standard graphical musical scores. Our music notation system, called the Sutoton notation, is based on onomatopoeia and note names which are easily pronounceable by humans with no extra training. Although being simple, Sutoton notation has been used in a variety of systems and loved by many hobbyists.
