It’s called “part extraction,” and you don’t even need a local anesthetic to perform it.

I love this stuff so I probably know a little too much already to get a lot out of the linked article.. But then I found her great interview with Laurie Anderson. And a full set of course notes on classical music all available for free. Great site!

Reading this brings back memories from college, pulling all-nighters attempting to turn in my final project for composition class. I'd finish composing around midnight, thinking I could go to bed soon, only to find the rest of the night taken up by actually making my score legible. The Sibelius software around that time was almost Microsoft Word-levels of terrible in thinking it knew what you wanted better than you did.
