making music notation open, collaborative, and scriptable

nCoda is an online tool that enables musicians across the world to create, analyze, and share music documents in a new way. Public prototype available August 2016.


Work directly with both point-and-click notation and text-based programming (LilyPond and Abjad) side by side in the same interface, with realtime project updates.

Automatically track the version history of complex projects, indexed by timeline and contributor, through documents saved and shared in the cloud.

nCoda has been built exclusively from robust, open-source music codebases and follows development best practices from the open-source community.
