I am totally blind, and I read music Braille. I also use a MIDI keyboard to make musical tracks using a sequencer.
Recently, I had a piece, October by Eric Whitacre, transcribed into Braille music.
I noticed that the bass clarinet and the tenor sax parts have octave markings for third or fourth octave when they probably go outside their range. I transposed them -12 semitones and it sounds about right, but I just want to make sure.
I also noticed this type of arrangement with barbershop music.
Why do they make systems like this?
