Grammaire de la notation Conté, nouvelle présentation du système

This book provides the basics of the dance notation system developed by Pierre Conté (1891-1971). A musician out of passion and choreographer out of a taste for expressive action, Pierre Conté decided, as early as in the 1930s, to use his experience of musical writing to notate the movement. This book takes a new approach to his notation system. Based on clear texts, practical comments, extensive illustrations, notated samples and explanatory diagrams, this handbook provides effective tools for learning a system intended both for dancers and teachers, designers and researchers.
