Abstract and Keywords

Ulrik Volgsten focuses on the control of sonic imagination in general and takes as his point of departure a discussion on how imagination is reflected in a number of theoretical perspectives. The author proceeds to supplement these perspectives with the dimension of social interaction and its role in paving the way for “an emerging sense of music” uncovering two different modes of connection: metaphorical projection and affect attunement. Additionally, Volgsten discusses how the three thematically distinct aspects of imagination (musical archives, places and contexts, and identifications) are distributed and concludes with a brief case study on a Kurdish cultural association, exemplifying different ways in which imagination can be controlled, for better or for worse.

Keywords: control, distributed imagination, affect attunement, metaphorical projection, associative networks, musical affordance
