Origins of Music Music has a long and complex history. It may predate language (and certainly predates the written word) and is found in every known culture, past and present,… varying wildly between times and places. "Music history" is the distinct subfield of musicology and history which studies the history of music theory. The development of music among humans occurred against the backdrop of natural sounds. It was, in all probability, influenced by birdsong and the sounds other animals use to communicate. Some evolutionary biologists have theorized that the ability to recognize sounds not created by humans as "musical" provides a selective advantage. Prehistoric music, once more commonly called primitive music, is the name given to all music produced in preliterate cultures (prehistory), beginning somewhere in very late geological history. Traditional Native American and Australian Aboriginal music could be called prehistoric, but the term is commonly used to refer to the music in Europe before the development of writing there. It is more common to call the "prehistoric" music of non-European continents especially that which still survives folk, indigenous, or traditional music. The prehistoric era is considered to have ended with the development of writing, and with it, by definition, prehistoric music. "Ancient music" is the name given to the music that followed. Ancient music was long thought to be all monophonic, but recent archaeological evidence indicates that this view is no longer true. The "oldest known song" in cuneiform, 4,000 years old from Ur, deciphered by Prof. Anne Draffkorn Kilmer (University of Calif. at Berkeley), was demonstrated to be composed in harmonies of thirds, like ancient English gymel, and also was written using the diatonic scale. Neither harmony nor the diatonic scale can still be considered developments belonging only to "Western" music. One pipe in the aulos pairs (double flutes) likely served as a drone or "keynote," while the other played melodic passages. In addition, double pipes, such as used by the ancient Greeks, and ancient bagpipes, as well as a review of ancient drawings on vases and walls, etc., and ancient writings (such as in Aristotle, Problems, Book XIX.12) which described musical techniques of the time, all indicate harmony existed. In ancient Greece, mixed-gender choruses performed for entertainment, celebration and spiritual reasons. Instruments included the double-reed aulos and the plucked string instrument, the lyre, especially the special kind called a kithara. Music was an important part of education in ancient Greece, and boys were taught music starting at age six. Greek musical literacy created a flowering of development; Greek music theory included the Greek musical modes, eventually became the basis for Western religious music and classical music. The term Early music era may also refer to contemporary but traditional or folk music, including Asian music, Jewish music, Greek music, Roman music, the music of Mesopotamia, the music of Egypt, and Muslim music. Some people believe that birds were the first source of music. For those who are spiritual would agree that music has its genesis in the heavenly. Lucifer was the one whom God appointed to play music. He later lost his position as Chief Musician and was hurled down to earth where he is now known as Satan or the Devil. He never lost his ability to play music and thus he used this ability to influence people to create all sorts of evil concoctions... .
Answer music originates from your imagination. i have several friends that produce their own music, and it is a slow process of creating beats and, if you want, …adding lyrics. you just have to have the right equipment and an imagination.
music originated from the medieval times
Answer Some people believe that birds were the first source of music
it came from the word muca ..
French is a romance language. Therefore it can trace most of its words back to Latin. However, the French empire was very, very large. France had colonies across Africa and th…e Middle East, along with North America for a brief period. Some French words are therefore of Arabic origin. In short, Latin and Arabic.
The study of the origins and purpose of music has been an active pursuit of musicologists and biologists for well over a century. Musicology, the loosely applied and broadly u…sed term for the scholarly study of music, has evolved over the last 70 years to produce several new subfields of study. In 1991, a Swedish biologist named Nils L. Wallin, coined the term Biomusicology, and the school of science that deals with the study of music from a biological point of view was born. The three main branches of Biomusicology are evolutionary musicology, neuromusicology, and comparative musicology. The subfield of Evolutionary Musicology contains the study of musical origins, and significant strides have been made in recent decades under this new field of study. Darwin's theories of musical origin rested in his observations of the gibbon-apes use of musical cadence as a part of the mating ritual to attract the opposite sex. Darwin concluded that early man, therefore, must have first used music for the same purpose. Edward MacDowell, internationally-trained composer, author, and the Chair of Music at Columbia University, considered Darwin's theory as "inadequate and untenable". In a speech given at Columbia, later published in 1912, MacDowell found more plausibility in the theory of Theophrastus, the successor of Aristotle, in which the origin of music is attributed to the whole range of human emotion. In 1948, the German musicologist, Curt Sachs, declared that all mythological, scientific, and historical attempts to discover the origins of music are all wrong! He blasted the many theories then presented on a more or less scientific basis, which Sachs referred to as "speculative hypothesis" - the theories that "man has imitated the warbling of birds, the he wanted to please the opposite sex, that his singing derived from drawn-out signaling shouts, [and] that he arrived at music via some coordinated, rhythmical teamwork". If these theories were true, he asserts, "some of the most primitive survivors of early mankind would have preserved a warbling style of song, or love songs, or signal-like melodies". Science, Sachs admits, would prefer "the more substantial, indeed irrefutable proofs of prehistorians, who excavate the tombs and dwelling places of races bygone. But not even the earliest civilizations that have left their traces in the depths of the earth are old enough to betray the secret of the origins of music." While the archeological views of Sachs may ultimately prove true, the quest to unearth the origins of music continues. In 1995, Ivan Turk, a researcher at the Divje Babe archeological site in Slovenia, uncovered a flute, pierced by spaced holes, made from the femur bone of a young cave bear. Similar prehistoric bone flutes have been found at various sites around the world, but the Divje Babe bone flute, or Neanderthal Flute, as called by Turk, is approximately 43,100 years old, and is claimed to be the world's oldest musical instrument. its been made by everyone dating back further then the cavemen. it wasnt actually a discovery. famous scientists
It is believed that music began back in the prehistoric times. It is said to have started with natural sounds of earth that were pleasing to the Neanderthals.
Musical originates from late Middle English: from Old French, from medieval Latin musicalis, from Latin musica.
Because the LANGUAGE derives from Latin, the actual French people come from the Romans.
There is no one person said to have first created music. Music originated with the first people to walk the Earth.
Ever since mankind emerged, many tens of thousands of years ago, people have been making sounds with things, for instance conch shells and sticks, to amuse themselves, a…nd for ritual purposes.
Music is originated from all around the world. It depends what type of music you are talking about, such as blues, reigheh and others
