Notation of Ekmelic Music

For the degrees within the semitone, the traditional form of notation is extended by three additional symbols 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.

      +1/12   +1/6   +1/4    −1/4   −1/6   −1/12       Alteration, tone fraction
  0 16⅔ 33⅓ 50 66⅔ 83⅓ 100   Distance in cents tempered
91⅔ -- 8⅓ -- 25 -- 41⅔ -- 58⅓ -- 75 -- 91⅔ -- 108⅓ Reach of hearing in cents tempered
                       Richter Herf / Maedel notation
                          Sims notation
                       Arrow notation

The additional signs apply to the respective bar, just like the traditional accidentals.

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