Musical material

If we assume that our perception of the world is conditioned by primal psychological images—Jung's collective archetypes—we can infer that the perception of sound events can have a close relation with the inner world of the listener. Physical reality—exterior facts—are processed on a subjective way according to personal psychological constitution and experience, providing a conscious or unconscious reference point through which our interpretations and formulations—artistic, scientific, philosophical, or religious—are made.

The creative musical process, for instance, based on the physical realisation of the energies and impulses of the inner world through a particular arrangement of dynamic sound elements, carries a potential that can stimulate the constitutive complexes of the psyche, an area where imagination and emotions lie.
