Certain quasi notational systems require non-linear quantification to express their meaning.
We investigate compositions with combinations of quantifiers similar to Hintikka’s examples and propose a novel alternative musical reading expressible by linear formulae. Particularly with a neographic score, his interpretation is based on aural, textual, visual and logical observations. We report on our experiments showing that performers tend to interpret compositional passages similar to Hintikka's sentence in a way consistent with our intended interpretation.
