ILLC Events this week
21 January 2020, Music Cognition Reading Group: Music of the TsimanéTitle: Music of the TsimanéLocation: 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?
