Possibly a common question, sorry if asked and answered before, but Google 
failed me...

I'm considering some aleatoric notation (so-called "box notation") for a piece 
but couldn't find info in the manuals (the "contemporary notation" section of 
the 2.14.2 docs @ lilypond.org is empty), or in the LSR, or Google searches to 
find out how to realize it.

By "box notation" I mean collections of gestures/phrases, enclosed in a box, 
with an arrow indicating to keep doing that until the arrow stops. The phrases 
could use normal rhythmic notation or proportional notation without stems/flags.

Some time ago, somebody posted a link to Mike Solomon's "granini di luce 
beccucciati da uccelli di silenzio" as an example of contemporary notation. The 
attached pic from it illustrates more-or-less what I'm after (though I wouldn't 
need the slash).

Thanks!
James
