Definitely, its a very nice idea, and as long as you're alwys shown where on the scale
each of the word ranges, its a fun way to learn these words. Only designs assuming you
know them upfront would be problematic.

E.g.: If i would read in meeting notes without further help "draft A was hummed at crescendo",
 "draft B was hummed at fortissimo", ...please go figure... ;-))
