I have just added musical sigils as a method to the Sigil Generator! Time, cleff, key, rests you can improvise to whatever makes it sound nicer musically. Pitch can be adjusted slightly for the instrument/musician.
Have fun with it! This is my first attempt at a tool for sigilizing music, and I may release something more complicated or specific in the future, possibly specifying sharps and flats using a more chromatic method.
If the staff and notes aren’t showing up for you, FYI they are an embedded font (for troubleshooting purposes).
How to create musical sigils
- Head on over to the Sigil Generator and choose “Musical” from the first dropdown.
- Type in your carefully worded statement of desire/intent.
- Adust the options:
- [no-vowels] Removes vowels
- [no-repeat] Removes repeated letters
- [→] Direction repeats are removed in
- [pitch] moves the notes higher or lower on the staff
How to use musical sigils
- Play in whatever cleff you want depending on your instrument.
- Play the notes in whatever time and key signatures sound the best to your taste.
- Adjust the length of the note and ad rests to your taste.
- Charge it however you’d like. You could play it over and over like a mantra, or sneak it into a larger piece of music to get it stuck in people’s heads.
How musical sigils are generated
On the back end I divide the letters of the alphabet into 9 chambers like a magic square, and then simply assign them to the 5 lines and 4 spaces on the staff sequentially for Pitch: Mid.
For Pitch: High/Low I simply bump the notes up or down on the staff to accommodate different instruments/musicians.
Troubleshooting musical sigils
If you are seeing something like “=N=L=I=G=H=G=” instead of a musical staff, the embedded webfonts aren’t loading for you.
Try a refresh or give it a few more moments before digging deeper into your web browsers capabilities or switching browsers.
