At last had occasion to play with. The result is attached. Very cool.
Now I'm trying to get a grip on how to position the note names above and
below the (two-voice) staff.

A short note on the attached notes (haha). This is a typical pattern in
Balinese music called "kotekan": the two voices play in a tight
interlocking pattern.

A couple of things stick out. For one, there are many manual beams. That
may be due to my Lilypondian inexperience[1]. Second, there are many
explicit octave marks: \relative doesn't work as it should; although the
melodies almost always move in small steps (in Balinese terms), the
intervals between the balinese notes are (usually) not uniform.

Let this suffice. More deetails in my other mail


[1] Especially you all may have a good laugh at the "kempli" part "o o o
o...". There must be a better way :-)
