Yes the tempo is quarter = 60, but this doesn't mean that I want the chords
with durations in rounded seconds. What I was thinking is to make a
transposition from a duration (say 3,57s) into musical figures, thats why is
easy for me to use quarter = 60. Another thing is that the interpreter will
have a pulsation basis so (s)he can read the music more easily, but it will
not sound like regular pulsations,
Sorry if I wasn't clear enough, I think maybe 1/100 of a second is a good
time basis, I can and will need to make some approximations of the musical
figures, so the interpreter won't have to lose his/her hair studying a 48s
