Description

This study examines the aesthetic interdependence of the two disciplines of score and choreography. It begins with a questionnaire-based survey which reveal the pervasive influence of music on a viewer's perception of movement. It proposes a paradigm which can be used to identify and categorize relationships between choreography and score. Acknowledged classics such as "Apollo", "Agon", "Errand Into the Maze", and "The Catherine Wheel" are subjected to detailed choreomusical analysis, utilizing the paradigm as part of a comprehensive examination of music-movement affinities. Current dance scholarship, the author states, has virtually ignored the area of music-dance relationships, so this book will be useful for courses on music for dancers, dance philosophy and aesthetics, dance history, choreography, movement and analysis, and other areas of dance scholarship.
