Summary This book provides a description and preservation of Oriental notational systems, the study of which makes possible a deeper understanding of Eastern art music and demonstrates its character to the student more meaningfully than does the mere presentation of recordings and musical examples written in Western staff notation. The numerous problems arising from styles and techniques which are based upon improvisation and extramusical concepts are also considered.
Contents Chinese lü and related notations -- The Chinese Kung-ch'e-p'u and related notations; Indian notations and North Indian drumming -- Zither tablatures -- The notations of the Buddhist chant (Tibet).
