Hi Pashkuli,

Except if my reason is to help you engrave your system, right? I don’t need to 
believe or be convinced that (e.g.) rap music is superior to jazz in order to 
help someone who *does* believe that figure out how to create a rap beat in 
their favourite MIDI sequencer…

Sounds like a worthy, if possibly quite difficult, goal.

Briefly glancing at that, it seems like it should be relatively easy for 
Someone™ to make Lilypond do what you want, *if* said Someone™ is a good Scheme 
coder. I currently have neither the time nor the skills to help you — but I 
hope you find Someone™ to help you!

Best wishes,

Kieren MacMillan, composer (he/him/his)
