Notation of Ekmelic Music

For the degrees within the semitone, the conventional notation is completed by three additional signs and their inversions: e.g. arrows after Franz Richter Herf and Rolf Maedel, arrows after Ezra Sims, or a combination of arrow after Gould, half arrow (hook) after Sims, and Wilson plus/minus.
See further notations at Alterations and Ekmelily.

The additional signs apply to the respective measure, just like the conventional accidentals.

After Richter Herf / Maedel, these signs are always placed above the notes and a diagonal slash cancels them. However, together with chords, bent arrows are used for better legibility; for example:
