So here's the piano part I told you about. Seems pretty weird to me, I don't know.

It appears that you do not have a plug-in to view PDFs.

Break the meters down into 3s & 4s, & beam them accordingly.

Jay:

You need to explore when the diminished ( octatonic ) scales are beneficial to use ..flat and sharp nines usually will indicate using intervals in an associated octatonic scale.

Extended minor donut stacks otten will indicate a dorian scale ( the 13th ) being a useful tone.

The F#-13 type symbols are misleading, Jay, begging the question, are these minor triads with added b13s, or are they dominant 7th-tyoe chords with b13. I can figure it out, but it's a sticky wicket.

Ed - Around here we've been using the minus sign to indicate minor, so the F#-13 is an F# minor thirteen chord, but I'm voicing it as an F# minor 9 with a sixth instead of a flat seven.

Hi Jay,

That being the case, I'd notate it as F#-69, since the F#-13 could be mistaken as an F# triad with an added 13th, since no 7th is indicated. While I understand that a 13th on a 7th chord on F# would be F#13, in the case of your minor chord it could confuse.

Best,
Ed
