Hi Harm and thank you for your detailed answer.
For some reason, at the first time, I was pretty sure it looked like curved beams...
My mistake!

Hi Pierre,

That's the video of my talk at Salzburg.
Though, the topic was not about curvy beams. I just showed some images
to demonstrate what's possible with user-code. Meant as an
Among those were indeed wavy Beams (more attached).
Alas, the code for it is much more complicated than the one I actually
showed during the talk.
And those wavy Beams don't follow the pitches (as those in the
manuscripts by Bach etc). I developed the code for the (paid)
type-setting of some avantgarde composition - there they stand more
for only vague determined note-durations.
If you look closely you'll see that the stems need to be adjusted frequently.

To summarize, the code for those wavy Beams will not do what's desired here!
Nevertheless it may be not impossible, though I've not the time to
dive into it...
