Music plays a big part in everyday life, but what is it exactly? When does sound become music, how does it relate to language and what might be its evolutionary function? For their upcoming concert Jens Maurits Orchestra is in search of all the triggers and thresholds that had to be overcome for music to arise. This blog is an archive for this research.
