Music Unheard

Years ago I read an article that mentioned some scientists visiting a tribe living far from civilization. These scientists had brought a gramophone and as an experiment they played a string quartet by Beethoven. Now one would not expect their hosts to understand this music, but observations seemed to show that their lack of comprehension was one step farther away: They did not even _hear_ it!

Webmasters at WebmasterWorld have the strangest kinds of expertise. Does anyone know this story? I would like to know

1. Where did this happen?
2. And when?
3. Where was this story originally told?

Of course I would like to have the exact words from the original source.

They cannot be seen from the side because the images exist as two dimensional representations; it is impossible to see the image from the side because is has no depth. The object, however, exists in three dimensions. If you are situated properly, you can see it from the side, top, bottom, back, . . . well you get the idea.

I'm gonna save you from the further torture of arguing with an ignorant man . . . I'm off to the shower. :)

Have a good New Year.

Hmm.. Some hours ago I thought that if I ever were to write an article about that unheard music I might want to link to this thread. That thought is certainly light-years away from my mind right now. Though I must admit that the title of the thread is still relevant...;)

And I must admit that if this were any forum other than Foo I would have felt bad about taking a major part in a tangent that long ;)
