Abstract

Apparently palaeontology is deeply rooted in popular music. Just take bands like T. Rex, Mastodon, Dinosaur Jr, The Ammonites, Mammoth, and Novi Fosili (the new fossils), and you get the picture. Digging into this subject matter it turns out that the extinct residents of prehistoric times have inspired not only band names, but also record and song titles and album cover artwork. In this paper I explore fossils as sonic inspiration or, if you wish, music for the extinct.
