This paper introduces Aspect Oriented Music Representation (AOMR), and its application to create tools offering new kinds of flexibility to musicians. Psychologists have demonstrated the diversity of composers' approaches, but existing computer-based tools support this diversity poorly. Current tools generally require musicians to work with pre-established abstractions and operations. AOMR systematically allows composers to create and work with musical viewpoints of their choice. This paper uses simple case studies to analyse a prototype AOMR implementation and characterise the new kinds of flexibility it affords to musicians.
