Composer develops album of meowsic for cats

Composer and cellist David Teie, who has played with the National Symphony Orchestra for 20 years, develops what he calls species-specific music, and he is creating an album for cats. Teie works in consultation with animal scientists, including Georgetown neuroscientist Jagmeet Kanwal. Cats are born deaf and do not hear sounds in the womb, so an early comforting sound that is mimicked in the compositions is purring. Slate (11/30)
