I find in the IR:

 -- Function: ly:make-transform xx yx xy yy x0 y0
     Create a transform.  Without options, it is an identity transform.
     Given four arguments XX, YX, XY, and YY, it is a linear transform,
     given six arguments (with X0 and Y0 last), it is an affine
     transform.  Transforms can be called as functions on other
     transforms (concatening them) or on points given either as complex
     number or real number pair.  See also ‘ly:make-rotation’,
     ‘ly:make-scaling’, and ‘ly:make-translation’.

-- Function: ly:transform? x
     Is X a ‘Transform’ object?

 -- Function: ly:transform->list transform
     Convert a transform matrix to a list of six values.  Values are XX,
     YX, XY, YY, X0, Y0.

 -- Function: ly:make-translation x y
     Make a transform translating by X and Y.  If only X is given, it
     can also be a complex number or a pair of numbers indicating the
     offset to use.

 -- Function: ly:make-rotation angle center
     Make a transform rotating by ANGLE in degrees.  If CENTER is given
     as a pair of coordinates, it is the center of the rotation,
     otherwise the rotation is around (0 .  0).

 -- Function: ly:make-scaling scale scaley
     Create a scaling transform from argument SCALE and optionally
     SCALEY.  When both arguments are given, they must be real and give
     the scale in X and Y direction.  If only SCALE is given, it may
     also be complex to indicate a scaled rotation in the manner of
     complex number rotations, or a pair of reals for specifying
     different scales in X and Y direction like with the first calling
