Music scores are a most remarkable form of information compression. A sheet
of music can be written on a single page, yet can take a hundred seconds or
more to unravel the concepts found there with a musical instrument or voice.
The musician can add stylistic nuances that the composer had not imagined,
or may add improvisations, derivatives, contratonals or other interpretive
notions. A musician can insert emotion with an instrument. So the composer
performs a transform to the score, then the musician performs an inverse
transform to create music.
I don't think I contributed to the notion of surfing with wavelets with that
paragraph but I had fun writing it.
