Take note - new music notation systems

Here's an interesting site of the Music Notation Modernization Association.

When you think about it (as they prompted me to do), the way we currently notate music in the west is crazy. All those sharps, flats, naturals....staves that look identical but for the clef sign, yet represent different notes....interval relationships that are obscured (such as how half and whole steps look the same). (Suddenly I feel better about my lame sight-reading!)

Check out some of their alternative solutions.
