A compilation of information about Solresol, the universal musical language

David Eddington's SolReSol "performed" in my program.

Projects using Solresol. Issues in translation may be discussed, but issues inherent to the language should be taken to one of the Linguistic Discussion forums.
So I took David Eddington's SolReSol composition (as found from the Sidosi resource page, http://issuu.com/dabdan16/docs/solresol) and put it into my program (a web app) that takes solfège syllables as input and plays it so I could see what it sounded like. (I also couldn't find any recording of it anywhere.)

You can see it (and listen) here on my google drive: http://tinyurl.com/mljfac7 (I tinyurl'd it because the musical data is contained in the link itself, making it an extremely long link xP). I should note that I changed the key from the original key of C to D to make it feel more uplifting (in my opinion).

My program, Shepard Orchestra, uses 'ti' rather than 'si' for the 7th scale degree, so unfortunately that doesn't perfectly match up with the Solresol language. I made it a few weeks ago, before I knew about Solresol, and I guess it's a little bit coincidental for me to be finding out about Solresol now, hehe. Maybe one day I could write a program that specifically has something to do with Solresol... o: perhaps incorporating colors as well.

I was also thinking about playing it on the piano and recording it, but that'll be for another day!
