Hello !

I have a question about whether Lilypond can manage a certain type of notation.

I happen to love a lot of music that is completely free time/ad libitum/rubatto/ I am curious about different ways to notate music that has no rythmic pattern, no concept of measures, beats.

I recently found in a book this transcription of a lute solo ( see the attachment), where instead of measure bars the pentagram has marks indicating seconds into the recording. it reminds me a bit of an old piano scroll. The horizontal axis is in time, not measures.

My question is can I make a score like that using Lilypond ?
