This is a study from the only academic field which I envy tremendously, because I’m sure they have more fun than the rest of us: ethnomusicology! The dissertation does get technical, as on top of a generative grammar framework it includes a fair deal of musical scores. So far the caveat…However, the core of the study is anthropological, and this is where the fun starts. In a nutshell, Leotar claims that the melodies used by Uzbek and Tuvan pastoralists to tame the animals are derived from a common symbolic and shamanistic background.
