Dear Devin,
there's also the "society for ekmelic music"  in Salzburg, Austria.
They also support mictronal notation with lilypond.
Have a look at
Maybee this helps You!
Hi All,

I need help from users who have some experience with microtonality (or overrides in general) in Lilypond to create a recipe for lilypond notation for the Kite Guitar ( The Kite Guitar uses 41 equal divisions of the octave in a clever way, which balances practicality with playability to get a very close approximation to 7-limit Just Intonation. I have made some attempts, but I don't really know Lilypond so well that I can create a handy recipe such as this. I did some research and found which is helpful, but I am unable to make the necessary tweaks with my limited knowledge. (I am happy to send over what I tried to do, but as my attempts have only failed I do not want to confuse anyone.)
The overarching specs are:
1. 41 Equal Divisions of the Octave

2. Frets are spaced two EDO-steps apart (i.e. 2 of the 41)
3. Strings are tuned 13 EDO-steps apart (i.e. 13 of the 41)
^^Lilypond will either need to find the pitch, or allow the user to override the current calculation as what I am getting is for a standard guitar.
4. There are Sharps and Flats, but there are also upwards "^", double-upwards "^^", downwards "v", and "double-downwards "vv". (see ) 5. There needs to be some way to set upwards/downwards in the key signature. ^^ it would be super-nice if this could be done globally, so that a composer can focus on the music-making
6. Support for chord charts such as Any help is appreciated. The growing community of Kite Guitar players would really appreciate this (many of whom are fellow software libre supporters/advocates). Also, I can send over some sample scores created with MuseScore once I receive permission to share them.
Thanks in Advance!
