          Abstract

          Non-speech audio communication has so far been possible through a series of mappings between the message to communicate and a somewhat arbitrary representation of that message in sound. By introducing the concept of a musical grammar, it is proposed that the arbitrariness of sound design can be reduced, resulting in a much more powerful communicative medium. By studying the ways in which formal grammars have been used to describe language communication and the parallels that such approaches have with musical grammars, it is shown that highly structured and communicatively-expressive sound systems which obey the rules of music can be developed, resulting in more advanced non-speech audio communication.
