Following my fun experience writing some documentation for and Turkish classical music, I'm thinking of writing a section on contemporary music for the Notation Reference. This would join the existing sections of Chapter 2 on various other forms of specialist notation.

The topics would include 20th/21st-century pitch concerns (so, an extended discussion of microtonality and non-traditional key signatures), rhythmic aspects (including contemporary time signatures), and various other contemporary innovations (cutaway scores, tone-clusters, etc. etc. etc.). It would partly be new material and partly be a home (or expansion of) some examples currently in the Snippets section.

So, some questions.

    (i) Would people be interested in having this in the docs?

I'm not into this myself, but it sounds an excellent addition to the docs.

BTW, slightly tangential, but have you seen section 4.5.5 on Proportional notation, written by Trevor Bača? There would be no need to repeat this.
