In trying to imagine what AE music might have sounded like I have often considered Chinese music, since its origins can be traced back to past the Han dynasty. (c. 500 BC) It is unlikely any nation or people can make a similar claim to such continuity. However, from reading some of your posts above, it seems highly unlikely that AE music was anything like ancient Chinese music.

If it's true that the land shapes a society and its artists, Egyptian music must have been considerably different than Chinese. In AE art, for example, the human form reigns supreme over nature, which only serves as a backdrop, whereas in Chinese art, the arrangement is almost the exact opposite. Mountains, trees and sky dwarf the human figure and leaves the viewer to understand that in traditional Chinese ideology nature is supreme. Any thoughts on how the consistent rise and fall of the Nile might have helped to shape AE music?
