Making music with the apes: The interspecies internet
We must have heard this statement often without pondering about it a lot. Maybe it’s time to get obsessed with this thought though.
Adler and Doren in their book, How to read a book talks about how language is often a hindrance to communication as it is not an effective medium to convey knowledge. That's why interpretation is so important when it comes to reading and listening.
By deductive reasoning, we can say that music is also about interpreting several emotions and feelings and hence, can to a certain extent resolve the hindrance to communication. The project, Interspecies internet makes use of this idea.
Below are some of the highlights from the TED talk on Interspecies Internet, an idea that’s in progress. The project is a result of curiosity on how other species behave when they are provided with the same tools as the humans are.
