Conjectures to the memes of indonesian songs

Abstract

From the works of mathematical properties of songs, we construct the phylomemetic trees of Indonesian ethnic and traditional songs. The memeplexes are then reflected by the used notes and respective durations as they exhibit the Zipf-Mandelbrot law, the gyration coefficient, “spiraling effects”, and the dynamic entropy shown in the structure of the songs. The cladistic techniques yielding phylomemetic tree shows widespread innovations of the songs sampled in the observation. This is however reflects the cultural evolutionary models for the innovations involve generations of people within ethnic groups. The paper ends with open discussions and conjectures for more detailed discussions related to each traditional songs as well as the properties of Indonesian people that are attached to heterogeneous ethnic groups that are continually swarming songs and in general, other aesthetic audible artifacts.
