    Thanks for sharing this paper. As a music language designer and developer (, I have a strong empathy with this paper as the research gap mentioned in the abstract is exactly one of my goals: to bridge the note representation and sound synthesis. And there are other axises to consider: real-time audio performance, coding ergonomics, collaborations, etc. There is no doubt that these languages have now become musical interfaces and part of instruments (laptops).
