comment Why is the last semiquaver outside the last triplet of the measure?
@Chiron If each triplet quaver (each triplet eighth note) is one foot tap, imagine sub-dividing each foot tap into four equal parts. The last semiquaver (the last sixteenth note) starts on the second sub-division of the last foot tap: _---_---_=--
comment Why does the Dorian mode on C have two flats?
Note that the image shows a Dorian mode that starts on C (and is based on a B flat major scale), instead of a Dorian mode that starts on D (and is based on a C major scale). I don't know if the correct way to name a mode is based on where it starts (the mode's "tonic") or the major scale it's based on. I notice the image caption says "Modern Dorian mode on C" and not "of C", maybe that's important.
comment Why is the key included in classical music titles?
@Ulf Åkerstedt 30 keys comes from key signatures 1 to 7 sharps + 1 to 7 flats + no sharps or flats, each in major or minor.
comment Is there a color code for notes?
Stephen Malinowski's Music Animation Machine has many visualizations that use harmonic coloring based on the perfect fifth: the tonic is blue, and then each increasing fifth is assigned an incremental hue from around a color wheel. In Music Animation Machine, you can select which pitch is the tonic, and it will change to blue. His Harmonizer iPad app uses the same color scheme with C fixed as blue.
