Honing, H. (1992). Expresso, a strong and small editor for expression. In Proceedings of the 1992 International Computer Music Conference. 215-218. San Francisco: International Computer Music Association.

The Expresso system is a combination of a calculus for expression and a graphical user interface (that will not be described). It could well function as a prototype for a next generation of music software/sequencers that can deal with the subtleties of expression in music performance.
