Ok, I see well that the tricky one is your part here ...

... and this is exactly *why* such (external) reference systems can
potentially be applied to any (homogenous) data collection ..., where
'external' refers to them not being 'naturally' inherent in this (any)
data collection but 'conventionally' (hence collectively) assigned ...

There doesn't exist something like a (granted) reciprocal comprehension
of every language, either ... Traditional (Western) notation provides a
certain universality, yet this does not necessarily imply that it is to
be globally understood ... The term 'language' -- referring to a system
of standardized symbols and relations to (ideally) being organized to
intelligible / meaningful messages -- implies by no means its non-being
restricted to a certain insider collective only ...

... these verbal conversions (and argumentative inversions) cannot help
it that dodecaphony is one of various potential (substructural)
reference systems likely to assign a 'syntax' to a set of data (e.g., a
composition analogously conceived) ...

>>'Semantics' is due to the reference to some (external) meaning,

Same as above : it is external in that it is not 'naturally' inherent in
the acoustic / graphic pattern itself but conventionally assigned and
affirmed only(*) -- conventions yet are based on collective agreement
with regard to a common objective (relative over a certain period of
time) within a certain social group, which again implies an
externalization of the subjective view of each negotiating party ...
(as 'social collective' generally requires a transcending of the
individual ...).
