Music notation is a set of symbols for representing music composition in a written form. In South East Asia, the most popular music notation is chipper notation (not angka). This paper introduces a new text based music notation that can be easily typed on a computer, yet powerful enough for writing multiple instruments and multiple voices compositions. It has been successfully implemented for writing complex compositions, to be played by an angklung robot.
