A picture of MuseScore lead developer Werner Schweer was featured in the Best of Kickstarter 2012. It’s linked to our successful Open Goldberg Variations Kickstarter project for which Werner used MuseScore to create an open source edition of Bach’s masterpiece.
The new edition of Bach’s Goldberg Variations as well as a superb recording of our partner Kimiko Ishizaka were released to the public in May 2012 under Creative Commons Zero. You can listen and download the work from opengoldbergvariations.org or enjoy it on iPad with the free app for iPad.
For the curious minds who wonder what you can see in the picture, Werner is demonstrating an experimental feature in MuseScore which is currently in development. This unnamed feature will make it easier to transcribe a scanned score. The video below demonstrates it nicely. If you find a good name for this feature, let us know in the comments!
