THE BEAUTIFUL FORMULA LANGUAGE allows to create new compositions and to notate already existing paintings.

We are constantly working on the improvement of THE BEAUTIFUL FORMULA LANGUAGE. Please, feel free to send us your suggestion, comment or any kind of question.

**ⁿ**ordinal number

**M**METER

**meter**is a fixed point with a surrounding

**area**.

The

**meter**is used to accomplish an equal partition of the surface.

A

**meter**is numbered from left to right and top to bottom.

**Meters**with the additional letter

**b**include the surface border and the four corners.

**A**AREA

The** area** surrounds the **meter** and is defined by the rows and columns between **meters**. The **area** and its **meter** have the same numbering.

Examples:

**U**UNIT

The **unit** defines the basic size of any kind of mark on the surface. 1 is the smallest size of a mark, 2 is twice as big, 3 is three times bigger and so forth…

Examples:

**T**TAKT

The **takt** is a fixed number of **units** during one single **entry**.

Examples: takt 2, 3, 4 & 5 (A T2, B T3, C T4, D T5)

**R**RHYTHMICAL MOTIVE

The **rhythmical motive** is a fixed sequence of **units** during one single **entry**.

Examples: 2,2,3,1 or 1,2,1,3,1,5

**Elements** are numbered by a, b, c …Examples:

M 1/4

R 2,2,3,1

E a,b,c,d

**PROCEDURE**

PP

The **procedure** defines the painting process.

Examples:

M 1/4

R 1,2,1,3,1,5

E a,b,c,d,e,f

P *a1,b2,c1,d3,e1,f5

**#**ENTRY

The **entry** defines how often each **element** can participate.

Examples:

M 1/4

R 1,2,1,3,1,5

E a,b,c,d,e,f
