Notation of Ekmelic Music

In the notations after Franz Richter Herf and Rolf Maedel, after Ezra Sims, as well as after Horst-Peter Hesse, the sharp / flat symbols are completed by three additional signs and their inversions for the degrees within the semitone.

Richter Herf / Maedel

In case of Richter Herf / Maedel, the arrows are placed above the notes and they apply to the respective measure, just like the conventional accidentals. A diagonal slash cancels them. However, together with chords, bent arrows are used for better legibility; for example:

Chord 10 : 13 : 22
