Solresol

"Ti-Mi Mi Mi-Ti!" ("Good day or good night!" in Solresol)

Solresol is a musical language created by Fran├žois Sudre in 1827, consisting of the seven musical notes Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, and Ti that can also be represented in various other ways.

Solresol is probably the first musical language that has been publicly documented, and these pages are intented to help preserving this historically important language.

Fran├žois Sudre inspired several other creations of musical languages, and the idea has even made its way into contemporary pop culture: A musical language, albeit a fictional one unrelated to Solresol, has for example been depicted in the episode "The Void" from the sci-fi TV series "Star Trek: Voyager" (season 7, episode 14) in 2001.
