FAQ

Q: What do the different shapes mean?
A: Each shape corresponds to a different type of instrument. Flutes are ellipses, single reeds (clarinets) are octagons, double reeds (oboe, English horn and bassoon) are inverted ellipses (stars), bowed strings are rhombi, brass are rectangles, plucked strings (including harp) are triangles, and timpani are fuzzy rectangles.

Q: What do the colors indicate?
A: The colors are assigned by a system called "harmonic coloring" in which the twelve pitch classes, C, C-sharp, D, etc., arranged on the "circle of fifths," are mapped to twelve hues, arranged on the "color wheel." This allows you to see changes in harmony and tonality. You can read more about this here:
