Note Painting© is an artistic image coded on the stave. Geometrical shape of the image is hidden in the system of symbols (“notes”) which enables reading and placing a painterly composition on the stave. (Most often it is connected with its performing.) If the picture isn’t performed it will be saved only in the form of a painterly composition.
Almost every tongue has its own notation. Among other things, people invented writing to record information (oral tradition was not lasting and it was threatened with considerable misshaping of the information conveyed). Writing is also useful for different reason: one can get acquainted with an idea formed by some person without the necessity of meeting them.
It is enough to read the information received from that person. Therefore one can say that writing is the carrier of language.
