Already the situation of a continuous monotonous stimulation creates a phenomenon (void) related to the functional context of a monotonous stimulation and no stimulation at all. This (monotonous) stimulation corresponds to a long tradition of perception control (Mantra) and is known from the hypnoid effects of repetitive music. The subjectivation of music is seemingly connected to an objectivation and dis-artefactization, behind the formulas and/or chaotic elements the composer practically disappears. Nevertheless, music is also a myth, the model of a Weltanschauung, and this context determines what we hear or rather perceive as the signal of music. (Accordingly, many variations of musical structures are to be found.)
