  • 21 January 2020, Music Cognition Reading Group: Music of the Tsimané

    Title: Music of the Tsimané
    Date & Time: Tuesday 21 January 2020, 12:30-14:00
    Location: ILLC Seminar Room F1.15, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

    The Tsimané are an indigenous people from Bolivia that have had relatively little contact with industrialised societies. Tsimané culture differs markedly from Western cultures and this has attracted interest from medicine to music. Adding to earlier reports of different consonance and rhythm perception, a study led by Nori Jacoby now suggests that Tsimané do not perceive octaves as equivalent. Should we reconsider the building blocks of music perception?

    22 January 2020, ILLC New Year's Colloquium 2020

    Date & Time: Wednesday 22 January 2020, 16:00-17:30
    Location: Room F1.21, ILLC, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

    The ILLC Colloquium is a half-yearly festive event (either the New Year's Colloquium, the Midsummernight Colloquium or the Midwinter Colloquium) that brings together the three research groups at the ILLC. Each colloquium consists of three main talks by representatives from the Logic and Language group, the Language and Computation group and the Logic and Computation group, which are occasionally followed by Wild Idea Talks. The colloquium is concluded by a get together of the entire ILLC community.
