# Scores

A score is a sequence of one or several voices denoted by:

It is assumed that all voices start simultaneously. Normally, the voices should have equal durations; if this is not the case, the duration of the score is the duration of the longest voice; all other voices are interpreted as if they were succeeded by additional rests which compensate for the difference between their duration and that of the segment.

### Remarks:

Octave and duration values should be specified at the beginning of each voice; if this is not done, default values will be assumed when required in the context of a specific application. In particular, octave and duration values don't carry over from one voice to the next.

### Note:

A single-voice score may be described as a single voice.

## Examples

``````{
[ e1/8. \slur(f/16 e/8) d c h0 a/4 ],   % first voice
[ c1/4 d e/2 ],                         % second voice
[ a0/4 h \slur(c1/8 h0) a/4 ]           % third voic
}
