Wood blocks?  These often come in pairs -- a high-pitched block
and a (relatively) low-pitched block.  You don't want to notate
exact pitches (they're not tuned!), but you _do_ want to notate
which block to use.

If I unterstand your quotes the right way:
The pitch is for indicating which parts of the rhythm are on beat an which
are off beat (low note is on beat, high one is off beat). This is a important
information for that kind of music (balkan).

the solution from xavier is working perfectly! (had to add {} in
the definition)

thanks & best regards
