The oldest flute thatwe have today is from Baden Wurttemberg, Germany, and is approximately 35,000 years old. It was produced froma swan's bone, at a time when drills were absolutely unknown. It has an almost best pentatonic scale likechinese music today. This is probably no accident. Other very old contraptions have a similar scale which tells usthat folks already had a clear sound system idea 35,000 years ago. But: You only need an accurate scale systemlike this if musicians are looking to play in combination. Shepherds for example won't need this playing solo and hence average shepherd's devices could have a completely different system like Arabic scales with which you can't playtogether but in spite of this, you will find those systems are well defined, too. This old artefact with the best scale is no proof yet but you better get used to the concept that musicalinstruments and woodwind ensembles played in the Stone Age already making music in ensembles seems to beless a hobby of a few but a basic a part of being human. As with the flute most devices we know today are refinements of very old ancestors. We can see some of them on monuments and paintings that are a whole lot once in a while hundreds of years old. These pictures and infrequently broken artefacts tell us little or no in regards to the music that was made with them,just even if people have danced.
