Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

If you ever wondered what Geeks bearing gifts would look like....

I recently encountered a couple of wonderful pieces of musical notation on Facebook. Both decode to give "Happy Birthday To You". Here is the first, which uses accidentals to achieve its effect. In this one (by Makito Hattori) the notes appear to go up and down in ways contrary to the actual tune.



The next one, on the other hand (from Classical Music Humor) consists of notes all of which lie in the same places (over three octaves) on the stave. No accidentals here: what drives out the tune is imaginative use of clefs:



Both are wonderful.

The solfege for the second one is wrong. It should be soh soh la soh do ti and so on.

You're right, aren't you? I hadn't spotted that, being too busy marvelling at the clef changes and not personally being a solfege geek. But yes, of course if we're in F major then C should be sol.

Delighted to have a visit from a solfege geek though! Thanks.

Whether C is do or sol in this case depends on whether you're using fixed or moveable do. In fixed do, the solfege written is correct.
