Well, My experience with CMN is very positive,
perhaps it has even changed my life...

Not only does CMN have the prettiest score notation
syntax, at least I think so, and I've seen many of them,
but in 1998, CMN was also my first exposure to lisp.
Before that I only new about BEGIN, {, [], etc.,
but I still thought those paranthesis were really
beautiful and easy to understand. And they could
even be used for making scores!
