go ahead... be a heretic PerlMonks

 Need Help??
JS Bach (IMHO, the first true 'music hacker'), placed his 'sig' in many of his pieces of music - in German notation, 'H' is 'B' and 'B' is a B-flat, so Bb A C B = B A C H. Here's my attempt at a tribute...
```                   @n=
map{[(\$_
>4&&\$_<14
&&\$_%2?'-':
' ')x 56]}(
0..16      );
l(\$_       ,5
,8)       for
(32       ,55
,56       );p
(5       ,2,
13     ,'X')
;    d(1,5,
"XXX");d(
16,3,"XXX"
);n(20,9);
n(27,10);n
(37,8);n(45
,9);for \$k
(6,10){l(14 ,
\$k,2);for(0   ,
1){c(\$k+\$_     ,
13-\$_,"/")      ;c
(\$k+1,13         +(
2*\$_),"_"          )}}c(int
(2*cos          (\$_*0.39)+11),
int(4*          sin(\$_*0.39)+4),
"X")for         (-5..8);l(17,8,1);c(
9,18,        ')');c(  \$_   ,9-\$_,"X")
for          (2..9);  sub     p{c(\$_,
\$_[0]       ,\$_[3])   for     (\$_[1]
..          \$_[1]     +      \$_[2])
;}           sub      d{     \$x=
\$_[1]         ;       c(    \$_[0]
,\$x++                ,\$_  )for
split(//,\$_[2]);} sub l
{p(@_,"|");} sub n
{(\$x
,\$y)=
@_;l
(\$x,
\$y+1
,3);
d(\$y,         \$x,
"(_)");c        (\$y

}sub c{\$n[      \$_[0]

Cheers, Ben.
