    Nice paper, thanks. Years back I was delighted by these articles that suddenly had the caves, already alive with the dance of light and art, now resonating with the sounds of human ritual – music, chant, dance.

      Thanks for the kind words, Neal!

      Yes, musical performance mattered. I continue to be impressed by how many of the archaeological sites here in Mexico were also designed to enable soundscapes in front of the temples.

      I will take a look at the references you mentioned.
