Of Birds, Whales, and Other Musicians: An Introduction to Zoomusicology (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Dario Martinelli's compact and enjoyable treatise on zoomusicology, "Of Birds, Whales, and Other Musicians", introduces musicologists, biologists, social scientists, and philosophers to a new theoretical model for studying how animal behavioral patterns relate to sound communication. Organized by musical trait rather than animal species, and drawing upon the work of such esteemed philosophers as Umberto Eco, Charles Sanders Peirce, and Thomas Sebeok, Martinelli's analyses redefine the boundaries surrounding music and help readers - scholars and amateurs alike - to appreciate the relationship between animals and musicological exchanges.

Dario Martinelli is docent of musicology and semiotics at the University of Helsinki. In 2006 Martinelli was made a Knight of the Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity by the Italian government for his significant contribution to the promotion of Italian culture.
