Along the different chapters of the book we will check, in an organized way (relatively organized and according to my point of view, of course), the whole system of symbols, codes and mechanisms used in music writing. In many cases we will also establish parallelisms between language (verbal) and musical language. Though they are two totally different faculties and even ruled by different parts of the brain, it is interesting to take the meaning of concepts such as spelling, grammar or syntax in order to determine behaviours and procedures when writing a score correctly.
The title 'Modern music texts. Musical language basis' does not mean that those 'basis' are recent invention, on the contrary. They are the result of an evolving tradition that goes back many centuries on time. In fact, they have been the result of the wish for reflecting in writing and to the maximum detail exactly what we want the musician to do when playing score. This is the reason why, when talking about the symbols and the codes, we will usually refer explicitly to jazz performing and modern music. Regarding this it is also important to keep in mind that music keeps evolving and, along with it, the musical language evolves as well. Due to the previous, some of these symbols and behaviour codes are not totally standardized. This fact happens particularly in the modern music field. In these situations, different procedures will be commented, along with an explicit recommendation of the most expanded and operative way to work, coming from my own knowledge and experiences.
