Q: What do the colors in the bar-graph score mean?
A: The colors indicate the "pitch class" of the notes; that is, every A-flat is a certain color (blue), every B-flat is a certain color (violet), etc. The piece is in the key of A natural, so there's blue at the beginning and end. The choice of colors is based on the "circle of fifths," which you can read about here:

FAQ

Q: What instrument is that?
A: It's a "claviorganum" --- a dual instrument made up of a harpsichord and a (pipe) organ. I used it instead of just a harpsichord because I liked how it brought out the sustained notes in the middle voice. You can learn more about this instrument here:
