The Embodiment of Musical Image: on Transference of Affect
Philosophical Anthropology
(Master’s programme)
10
2016
The survey investigates structure and effects of the musical imagery with which music becomes the mediator of intersubjective sense. Phenomenological description of the experience of the “ordinary listener”, for whom music is one of “background” daily practices, gives access to the experience of radical transformation of the listening subject immersing into the musical image. The effects of musical image reveal themselves within the performative field of the body, resonating with the sounding music. The affective, non-intentional pra-phenomenality of music affords the alternative concept of musical time based on phenomenology of “semi-openness”, subordinating the listening subject to the logic of pleasure and trauma. All just-listed characteristics of the work of the musical image approach towards a non-cognitive theory of musical understanding, which would reject to identify music with the process of transmission of mental entity between composer’s and listener’s minds
