    PIE music?



    Why don't we have PIE music comparative studies?
    So, based on all IE peoples music, to find an early PIE music, how they sang, what musical instruments they used, what was rythm, melody, dances etc.?
    Just like we reconstruct language or mythology thre must be a way to reconstruct a music!

    No, impossible. Language has infinitely more of a structured, consistent order as compared to music and is not easily picked up from unrelated tribes. This will never happen.

    The same instruments can be found in albanian culture too.

    Well we have seen and hurrian melody 4000 years old, and mesopotamian melody etc. written in another form then musical modern notes.

    But if we take together only those melodies from IE peoples, and try to find what is common among them in rhythm, melody, mass, tempo, etc. Then we can reconstruct IE melody, perhaps we must accord it with linguistical features of proto-IE language.
