The 35th of a weekly series of radio programmes created by :zoviet*france: for Basic.fm.
First broadcast 9 March 2013.
The playlist for this week’s show was put together while walking along a path suggested by the scientific paper, ‘The emergence of hierarchical structure in human language’.
Based on research by its authors, Shigeru Miyagawa, Robert C Berwick and Kazuo Okanoya, this describes how human language may have developed in part from the same evolutionary origins as birdsong.
Our thanks go out to the artists and sound recordists included here for their fine work.
