The workaround Graham pointed out shows that with lilypond, the task of imitating a convention which seems to be fairly straightforward shows itself to be fairly difficult to implement.

I wouldn't call it difficult -- unintuitive, perhaps, but not difficult.

(untested)

\version "2.3.16"
```
global= \repeat unfold 64 { \hideNotes c16 c c c c c c c c c c c c c c c |
```c16 c c c c c c c c c c c c c c c |
c16 c c c c c c c c c c c c c c c |
c16 c c c c c c c c c c c c c c c | \break }
music = \relative c' {
a4 b c d }

\score { \new Staff << \global \music >>
\paper {}
\midi {}
}

Something like that is all you need.

Cheers,
