ABSTRACT. Cohen argues that, in the West, the era, the individual composer, and the individual piece have been important, whereas in some other cultures the function and the musical instrument are salient factors. Meyer holds that two cultures may appear to employ the same scale structure (the structure might be interpreted differently by the members of each culture). As Michels puts it, neuromusical research is providing valuable information about music processing. Cook holds that there is a nexus of interrelated assumptions built into the basic language we use of music.
