As everyone knows, for human beings, everybody likes music and feel the music pleasure delivering. But researchers found recently animals are also playing a little music from fish to monkeys to enjoy the life timely.
Music preferences of animals may be related to the stimulation of music.
According to a study published by journal cognition shows, through primates animal observation to music preferences of central and south American monkeys, the researchers find non-human primate animals seem to prefer easy lullabies to fast pace dancing songs.
Josh Mcdermott from Massachusetts Institute of technology and his colleague Mark House from Harvard University put the a horn near the feeding of the branches. When there is little monkey own plopping into the branch, the researchers will make the horn release some music.
In different experiments, scientists played the Russian folk lullabies with flutes, Mozart’s Concerto in B flat major k458, Germany lullaby, and Alec Empel’ strong melody “no escape from active”.
In the repeated experiments, the monkeys were gathered in the branches of the most slow music. The music was usually a hypnotic. Mader Mott said that the music preferences of animals might be related to the some stimulation of the music. He explained: “in natural urgent environment events like fighting and storms, usually there was a quick voice. Monkeys and other animals thus produced a evolved response to the violent events on sound. Shortcut sound means the situation is bad.”
The monkey felt that the fast rhythm of the music is nervous, but many people just liked the strong rhythm, which was obviously the melody of the weekend to enter the climax. Other studies by Mader Mott showed that human babies are actually like primates, like to listen to the music. It may be a hobby for adults to enjoy strong music.
