Musical Experience beyond audible Sound

ID 29674
Abstract This paper addresses the question as to how far music is experienced independently of the presence of sound. A number of musical examples are discussed in order to show that inner and mental forms of listening not only play a decisive part in the musical experience, but that they cannot be removed from the perception of any musical event. The conclusion is drawn that sound can never be perceived ‘as such’ but that it is always interpreted, extended and complemented by inner listening processes. The last chapter of this paper debates if the incitement of inner listening processes is relevant for electro-acoustic music, as the post-medium characteristics of the computer allow for a very nuanced application of sounds with referential qualities. Key aspects that are discussed are Auditory Imagery, Audiation, extrinsic and non-cochlear listening.
