“I feel that from now on music should be an essential part of every analysis. Musical interaction reaches deep archetypal material that we can only sometimes reach in our analytical work with patients.”
(C.G. Jung, 1956, as quoted by Margaret Tilly)
Music, of all the arts, has the most immediate direct and visceral impact on the soul. It is the intersection of mathematical harmony with the ineffable, and otherwise inexpressible, movements of the spirit. In the creation or appreciation of music the aesthetic ideal is realised. Music, great music, archetypal music transforms the prosaic into the sublime and elevates meaningless suffering into majestic pathos. The flight of the soul from Paradise Lost to Paradise Regained has no more agile steed. Sections of Art and Pop music selected and presented by five virtuosos of the psyche and heard through the amplifier of depth psychology, promises to take the student on an unparalleled, felicitous, and polyphonic tour of the psyche.
