Abstract

Ontology consists of two interlocking works: Nature/Nurture by Robert Davidson and 19… by Richard Vella. Using music, these two works examine various aspects of identity.

Nature/Nurture draws attention to how culture and ideas are made and their role in defining who we are. Robert Davidson will perform a new 45-minute work based on speech recordings supplied by ABC archives. Included are voice recordings of Margaret Mead, Steven Pinker, David Williamson, Richard Dawkins, Noam Chomsky, Helena Cronin, Stephen Jay Gould, Edward O. Wilson and many others.

In 19… Richard Vella focuses on songs as they change over generations and a song’s relationship to our bodies and identity.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
