Linguistically inspired approaches to the semiotics of music have generally described music as an abstract system of tonal and temporal relations, 'Music, by itself, signifies nothing', Nattiez (1971: 8), echoing Stravinsky's  categorical denial of musical meaning. Such views aptly describe a particular early 20th century formalist approach to music.
