Ok, I thought today was going to be a non blogging day – that lasted all of twenty minutes. I caught a great comment from the post titled Binary Code and Ambiguity. I’m copying + pasting the entire comment for my own notes. Hopefully it will make as much sense to you as it did for me…

Candice writes “Binary is what makes it all work, by its sheer simplicity. If you break anything down far enough, you can record it. And from there copy and move and on and on.

Take for example, ballet. All of ballet works within a very strict framework of positions and movements, which when combined together can create something as grand as Giselle. Every step has a simple name, in French, which is the same in Moscow or Paris as it is in London or New York. (Method differences on specific steps excepted – usually those are just details.) An advanced ballet class usually consists of a teacher giving directions without examples: just words and corrections.

    While the French terminology is great for class instruction, for actual recording purposes, you might be interested in Labanotation.

    Thank you.

    I started the analogy with cooking but this one just works better.
