Do we have a listing in the archives or can someone tell me in a
paragraph or two - what disciplines are included in the "Humanities".
Where does one draw the line? Thanks.

Subject: constructing tabla musical notation

Today I suggested to a colleague of mine that he investigate CAD/CAM
software as a means of constructing traditional tabla (Indian drum)
notation, which I'm told uses a circle of varying radius as the
principal organizing figure. I was at a loss, however, to name a
suitable package for the Mac, his computer of choice. I suppose that
such a package should make it very easy to produce circles, expand and
contract them, place other figures on their circumference (to indicate
beats of various kinds or absence of beat), make labels (can we hope for
the Arabic alphabet?), and so forth.

Any suggestions?

Yours, Willard McCarty
