Note: Alan Lomax explains the measurement parameters of Cantometrics and the systems analysis it yields. "It took three years to invent the system and twenty years to get a computer to handle it." He illustrates his lecture with samples of Genovese tralallero singing, Irish diddling, West African music, and choral singing from Lombardia, among others. The recording has a pronounced echo.
