- Thematic Notation
- Zack Brown's LN text
1.3 Thematic indications state what aspect(s) of movement(s) stand out over time. [Thematic indications are discussed in detail in Moving About: CapturingMovement Highlights Using Motif Notation, by Charlotte Wile with Ray Cook. See Chapter XVII, "Themes."
3.3 Hannah said the resolution and other aspects of iPad will make the app very versatile. The group agreed that the app will be extremely useful for students and practitioners.
3.4 In the second part of Video 3 the group discusses a Labanotation textbook that Zack is writing. The purpose of the book is to answer problems that Zack has encountered in his study of LN.
3.6 In his text Zack addresses this issue by changing the way notation is taught. For instance, he deviates from standard texts by first teaching the concept of “Front” and how it can be applied to notating gestures. In contrast, in the standard LN texts stepping is taught before gestures.
3.9 Zack said a primary purpose of his text is to identify and begin with the “elementary” parts of LN (i.e., the elementary aspects of LN, rather than the elementary aspects of dance.)
