DORIS GREEN, African Dance & Music Historian

It was created because music for the percussion instruments of Africa could not be written with western musical notes. For example in order to notate the music of an African drum, one must show whether the drum is struck with a stick, half hand or full hand. One must also indicate whether the stick, hand or half hand remained in contact with the drum skin or instantly rebounded.

Therefore an entire new system had to be created to annotate the rhythm and nuances of African instruments. GREENOTATION can notate the music of bells, rattles, drums, talking drums, sticks, stamping tubes, xylophones, hand clapping and water drums.

The Benesh Institute & Benesh Movement Notation — RAD. Devised by Rudolf and Joan Benesh, and first published in 1956, BMN is a written system for recording human movement.

The Benesh Institute & Benesh Movement Notation — RAD

It is most widely used in the recording and restaging of dance works. Over 1,750 BMN scores have been written and are used in research, teaching dances from the repertoire and for analysing movement. The set exercises and dances in the RAD syllabi are published in BMN as this enables teachers to study the work in a common language and in more detail than is possible from word notes or videos alone.

About Labanotation - The context

Through the work of Sigurd Leeder, Albrecht Knust and Ann Hutchinson (amongst others) the rudimentary writing grew into a powerful and flexible notation system: Labanotation or Kinetography Laban. There are three approaches to description in the Laban system: Motif Description, Effort-Shape Description and Structural Description. In Motif Description only the motif or the most important characteristic of the movement is given. Untitled Document. DNB Theory Bulletin Board. DNB Teacher Certification Course.
