Angklung is a traditional musical instrument from Indonesia. This instrument has a lot of variety in how it is performed; a common format is the orchestral format in which 15-30 players gather to form a team. Playing Angklung in this way is fun but also presents some challenges that are hard to solve manually.
I will show you how Python-based algorithms can be used to ease the pains of managing Angklung teams, by reading Angklung-specific sheet music and calculating the most optimal distribution of Angklung based on several important factors. In addition to that, Python also can be used to transform western music notation to traditional musical notation (Cipher notation) with the help of MusicXML.
