Sample text

As painted by Kandinsky, heuraesthesia in music could be the preformation of the structure, as it is presented before composition as a complete sensorimotor object, non-linguistic but perfectly coherent as a perspective of rhythmic and melodic production. We may also never be certain that Mozart was a synaesthete. But we can recollect his words qualifying the pictorial representation of a musical composition: Even if it is a long piece, I embrace it all in my mind in a glance, as if I saw a beautiful picture or a beautiful human being: in my imagination I do not hear it in order of succession, as it should come after, but I take everything so to speak in one shot.

It can be understood as the conscious manifestation of the low levels of information processing, in all the richness of their multimodal expression. Some synaesthetes combine letters or numbers with colors, some perceive temporal sequences in abstract and geometric forms. Other “see” or “taste” sounds or even visualize geographically and tridimensionally time and the most abstract of thoughts. Studies on synaesthesia confirm that it is not associated with any pathological profile and that it accompanies adaptation without ever hampering it or only on rare occasions, its difficulties frequently arising from the association with disorders of another kind: autism (Baron-Cohen 2013), schizophrenia… If today’s models struggle to explain the reason for the conscious and irrepressible presence of these synaesthetic objects in a portion of the population, the fact that they follow the process of making sense of reality with the aim of a coherent adaptation suggests that they are also the products of a relevant formal and causal treatment (Mroczko-Wąsowicz 2014).
