GUIDO Canonic Normalforms

All normalforms use completely specified notes (rests) and durations.

Simple polyphonic normalform (SPNF)

    piece = segment of sequences, i.e., an aggregate of simultaneous voices
Example: { [ c1*1/4 c1*1/4 ], [ e1*1/4 f1*1/4 ], [ g1*1/4 a1*1/4 ] }

Chord sequence normalform (CSNF)

    piece = sequence of segments, i.e., a succession of chords
Example: [ {c1*1/4, e1*1/4, g1*1/4} {c1*1/4, f1*1/4, a1*1/4} ]
