In this paper, I consider J. L. Austin's William James Lectures 'How to do Things with Words', in order to ask to what extent Austin’s notion of the speech-act might also be applicable to music. Are there ‘music-acts’, and what would such a possibility tell us about music and its evolution, its relationship to language, and its social functions?
