A measure is shown here:

RH = whole-note octave; LH = four AC-F eighth note pairs

How to notate this is in lilypond on a note by note basis on a grand staff.

The note F5 in the treble clef is given as two lists, one for notes and other for duration

F5 -> [rest,'F4',rest],timing = [0,4,0], 4 denotes four quarter notes

Likewise

F6 -> [rest,'F4',rest],timing = [0,4,0]

A3 -> [rest,'A3',rest],timing = [0,0.5,3.5]

C4 -> [rest,'C4',rest],timing = [0,0.5,3.5]

F3 -> [rest,'F3',rest],timing = [0.5,0.5,3]

A3 -> [rest,'A3',rest],timing = [1,0.5,2.5]

C4 -> [rest,'C4',rest],timing = [1,0.5,2.5]

F3 -> [rest,'F3',rest],timing = [0.5,0.5,3]

A3 -> [rest,'A3',rest],timing = [2,0.5,1.5]

C4 -> [rest,'C4',rest],timing = [2,0.5,1.5]

F3 -> [rest,'F3',rest],timing = [2.5,0.5,1]

A3 -> [rest,'A3',rest],timing = [3,0.5,0.5]

C4 -> [rest,'C4',rest],timing = [3,0.5,0.5]

F3 -> [rest,'F3',rest],timing = [3.5,0.5,0]

How to convert the above notes and durations in lilypond to generate a music engraving? Basically is there a possibility in lilypond to generate a note by note syntax for the whole measure?

  • You never explained where the information that looks like F5 -> [rest,'F4',rest],timing = [0,4,0] is coming from. Basically, you shouldn't follow any of that, except maybe the note names. Have you looked at the Learning Manual?

This code will generate the measure shown in the question:


\new GrandStaff
<<
    \new Staff \relative { <f'' f'>1 }
    \new Staff \relative { \clef bass <a c>8 f8 <a c>8 f8 <a c>8 f8 <a c>8 f8 }
>>
