Hi Kieren,
Great job!
Your topic reminds me some test pages done with a C. Cardew score two years ago:

Actually, it was pretty simple:
1. take a couple of lines (some rotated), a couple of circled markups (note names), a couple of triangles, and a couple of arrows;
2. throw them all in a \markup \overlay block with liberal use of \translate.


What would be *really* impressive would be this in a framework, where you could simply give (e.g.) the top left and bottom right coordinates for the graph, and say triangles to fill with which colour(s), and a completed Tonnetz graph would pop out automatically. That might have to wait for some "spare time" in the future…
