How to go from this quartet to musical notation to Great Highland Bagpipe piping notation to tweaking the notation to a piping quartet ... and the other way to a vocal quartet from piping music ...?

In a loosely related vein, I wonder in what ways MIT OCW-centric WUaS, like Wikipedia with MIT OCW, would be able to collaborate with both Sabhal Mòr Ostaig - http://www.smo.uhi.ac.uk/en/ - and - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabhal_M%C3%B2r_Ostaig - the college taught in Scottish Gaelic on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, and with MIT OCW Translated Courses - http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/. (See the Sabhal Mòr Ostaig links below, too).
