13:00 - WORKSHOP - Fundamentals of inferential stats : Find out how hypothesis tests work Website | More Information
Inference (or hypothesis testing) is a widely used technique for assessing evidence from data so it gets covered in most introductory statistics or data analysis units. The good news is that all statistical tests follow the same underlying structure. In this workshop we explore this structure in a simple setting and demonstrate how it applies to some common statistical tests. Recommended for anyone studying an introductory stats unit.

Please note: this workshop is open only to current UWA students. Registration is free, required and available through eventbrite.

Born in Perth, Nicola obtained her Bachelor of Music with first class honours from the University of Western Australia in 1999, and was awarded the Edith Cowan Prize for performance and musicology. During her studies Nicola began to play with the Australian Chamber Orchestra on modern and historical clarinet. Her curiosity in early music took her to the Netherlands, where she completed her Masters in historical performance at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague with Eric Hoeprich in 2004.

Now based in Europe, Nicola tours and records extensively, and is in demand as principal clarinet with various orchestras and ensembles. Nicola is also an active chamber musician, regularly performing with the pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, and the Cambini and Edding Quartets, and has performed at many prestigious festivals. Nicola returns to UWA for this week-long residency as an Institute of Advanced Studies Misha Strassberg Fellow.

17:00 - SEMINAR - UWA Music presents: Callaway Centre Seminar Series | Nicholas Bannan : Did the voices of men and women evolve to sing in harmony? More Information
A free weekly seminar series, with presenters from within UWA and from the wider community.

Since Darwin, evolutionary explanations of the role of vocal communication in the development of human cultural universals have received fluctuating levels of attention. While during the early 20th Century ethnomusicologists such as Sachs and von Hornbostel sustained an interest in the distribution of musicality as an inseparable feature of the human condition, little progress was made for more than a century after Darwin in examining the material evidence for musical origins. A key feature of this from an animal behaviour perspective – especially in terms of the application of Darwin’s sexual selection model to human musicality – is the gendered nature of the anatomy that permits us to engage in music. Comparisons across species indicate considerable sexual dimorphism in terms of such features as: range; role; interaction; and purpose. Humans, like Pied Butcher Birds, have equal and complementary capacities for musical generativity and participation, with a clearly superior role for the female in employing music in child-rearing. Studies in linguistics have remarked on the assumed universal whereby the vocal ranges of human adult males and females lie on average exactly an octave apart: a feature plainly evident in cultural practice. Yet an explanation for this in the voice and music literature is strangely absent. This paper reports on the initiation of a research project aiming to address this lacuna in the research landscape, and to set out some of the definitions and other factors that need require consideration.
