Probably in search of food or to escape a predator...Check out the Devonian Period of the Paleozoic Era & some of the closest Periods earlier.
IMO, we made a mistake when we came down out of the trees; I refer to that time period as the "Descent of Man".
Actually, I've found an interesting point in history; The origin of the first musical instrument--The Whistle. The first whistle ever found dates
back to about 25,000 years ago & was found at Dolni Vestonice, Czechoslovakia. It was found in a Neanderthal winter camp.
Well, even though the first musical instrument is only about 25,000 years old, *music* must have been around much longer; Say, back when Stone
Knappers (people who make tools by chipping stones) discovered, perhaps accicently, that they could create pleasingly hypnotic rythymns when they
chipped the stones in unison. Perhaps they even experimented with adding a bit of rudimentary language with the chipping sounds.
In other words, the first type of music invented was *rock music*!
