Timesig is a work in progress esoteric language by User:upbeatsarcastic.

Premise

Timesig programs read like musical scores. The program pointer is called the BAR, the program tape is called the STAVE.

Features

The STAVE

A Timesig program can never be infinite in length.

The BAR

The BAR acts as the program pointer. It reads from left to right across the source bars, which are defined like so:

STAVE 32 | TEMPO 120
%crescendo%
$|4/4 e g f# b-f|a-a c-b-a-g d b:||

Commands

Timesig has 13 commands, one for each musical note and 1 repeat for loops.
