We have aspects in our music that refer to space, like Kometenmelodie, but we also have some very earthly aspects that are very direct and not from outer space but from inner space like from the human being and the body, and very close to every day life.
The association field is very large in music, meaning that somebody can make some special sound put them on tape and broadcast them to 50 people or 100 or 1,000 and each one of those people has a different impression of the sounds they have heard. It's not like the cinema where nearly everybody sees the same thing. I think the optical is much more fixed but when you have music you have so many different sorts of musics in the brains of the people.
