Hi Carl,

> Would that be \times 4/5 16 ?  Or \tuplet 5/4 16 ?

\tuplet

In an Adès score, for example, you might see

(4/4) q q q q | q q \triplet { q q q } | (1/6) q q | (4/4) q q q q | …

and the two 1/6 "quarters" are really triplet quarters, each of a duration
equal to one of the \triplet q’s.

That’s why I’m thinking the rhythmic relationship might be a lot easier to see
if the 1/6 was in #'note-denom format rather than standard (numeric) format.

Cheers,
Kieren.
