Using JMusic from JESWe use a really neat package for music called JMusic (http://jmusic.ci.qut.edu.au/) in our Media Computation Data Structures class (http://coweb.cc.gatech.edu/cs1316). I'm teaching a workshop in Chicago this week where the question came up (again), "Can we do this from JES?" At this moment, they are all working on MIDI music in Java, so I decided to try to make it work. (You can see their cool media at http://home.cc.gatech.edu/gacomputes). It works!
Here's how I did it (on Windows):
(1) Copy jmusic.jar and the JMusic inst folder into your JES directory.
(2) Edit JES.bat so that jmusic.jar and the JMusic inst folder are on the Java classpath, like this:
%java% -Dpython.home="jython-2.1" -Xmx512m -classpath %classpath% JESstartup
(3) Start up JES.
(4) Here's an example that works:
You'll see Western music notation, have the ability to play the notes, and the ability to save out MIDI files. Cool!
