Oh, and does it have to be generative, or can it be a fixed score?
Download "Bleep" from my webpage - the score is a bunch of jpegs.

Hi Ed,

Hope you don't mind me writing to you directly...

I was following this thread with interest, and have been checking your 'teasers' 
for your upcoming project with much interest.  Hope it's all going well.

I'm looking for a .ttf for rendering very simple notation - notes, rests etc 
without the need for barlines.  Could you recommend one, as I have been 
floundering somewhat and going round in circles trying to get one that works 
happily in pd & GEM?

Also, I have recently upgraded my lappy to a dual core machine and I noticed 
from your screenshot that you are also a fellow puredyner.  You had, in your 
screenshot, a rather funky looking gizmo that, if I read it correctly, measures 
the use of the dual cores - what is that thing!:)

Very best wishes,

Julian Brooks
