Recent research biomusicology, as well as new trends in contemporary music suggest the existence of music universals underlying both human music and animal sounds. In order to better understand the musical qualities of the infant cry, we devised, specifically for musicians, a questionnaire divided in 4 sections: pitch, volume, timbre, and sound/silence ratio, and including final questions about felt emotions during performance and expressivity of the signal. Each section was completed by 40 musicians (18F, 22M; mean age 27), after listening to four-days-old infants cries recorded in three different situations: pain, hunger and cinematic stimuli. Musicians were context-naïve.
