In the 21st century we can barely conceive music without visual support. Each song has a video, usually in the case of music with lyrics, in the case of electronic music, we may be familiar with the idea that, for example, electronic music parties all have a visual. So we do not separate the music from the picture. And these images are usually moving. But of course, things are very different in the past.
Thus, we can mention the Herder who wrote in "Kalligone" that the world voice annihilates the visual world. Nietzsche also says that everything that forms the visible world searching for her soul lost in the music. Ribot was a little more cautious about this theory. According to him, those who have a culture of good love music music doesn't have a visual representation when listening to their favorite music. Any relationship between music and mental representation may be intentional and temporary.
People share ideas mentioned above said that they could not see anything while listening to music. They got too much lost in a world of sound, following the rhythms and harmonies of live music to create a visually in their minds. They see nothing but just listen, they belong fully to the world their own impressions. In this case, some people said that the main purpose of music is to strengthen our deepest feelings, dominant and mind.
According to Ribot are the same, those who do not have too much music and culture has a somewhat musical tastes evolve, can indeed have very obvious musical representation. For example, if someone hears military marches in the distance, people tend to imagine the regiment marched. Or while listening to one of Beethoven's sonata, one can imagine a noisy place, or a storm. So there's the antithesis assumes that Ribot is strong between the visual and sound imagination. We can say also that there is a contradiction between the art of time and space art.
Music, emotional language, is a chain of voices, a mental state that to be understood should be raised in the human conscience affective events that match moods.The passing of the composer's spirit and difficulty, and she in return came with the music of her inner life Variant. Even so, as Delacroix said, there are certain individuals who need music associated with visual elements. For these people, the image may take the form of a small drama of the story is very emotional. Musical forms can determine the shape of the story. Just like emotions, images can also rely on the rhythm and sound variations.
Also, we may be aware of the fact that there is a certain separation between thought and imagery. Our capacity to think really can function without the endless chain of images. Images can represent only a fragment of the spirit. But in order for the human brain to create or recreate certain images when listening to music, it needs a rest, are in a critical state, kind of enthusiasm. Otherwise, if the person is feeling too tired, he/she is not even able to remember things at the bottom of the visual form.
As far as the musicians are concerned, their views on this matter may be very different. While some people say that music experts do not have a visual representation of the piece of music, which is one of the things amateur do, other musicians agreed to the contrary, that the music and the images are very related, and there can be no one without the other. Rhene-Baton for example says that when he wrote this work, he used to look at things and gestures, and this happens every time he listens to a piece of music.
Of course, for most music experts, who focus on the way in which a particular piece of music composed and how it is played, there also could not require a visual to support their perception of the music. But for many people, music and the visual elements which are very related. Thus, the image created in the minds of people by their voices listened to form a small drama, short stories with emotional content.
