I play guitar, although extremely badly and piano, also extremely badly. I can play the notes, just not necesaarily in the right order. And you're
right, this is absolutely from the perspective of the listener.
This thread is about Onomatopoeia. In other words, the music sounds like the words that go with it. I'll once again use the example of Vivaldi's
Four Seasons. Or maybe Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush (very eerie when played in the dark)
I apologise if I questioned anyone's musical ability. This is more about the connection between music and imagery.
I'll open this out wider and ask what music conjours strong images for you.
i.e. who can listen to the William Tell overture without getting a picture of the Lone Ranger?
