Abstract and Keywords

Lars Ole Bonde considers musical imagery in the context of music therapy sessions and focuses on the Bonny Method of guided imagery and music as a well-documented example of music imagery. While Bonde mainly focuses on listening in clinical settings, he argues that imagery listening should be seen as a health resource in everyday listening settings. Taking in perspectives from neuroaffective theory, Bonde analyzes clinical material and evidence from the analysis of EEG data and shows how music therapy theory—as a specific tradition within musicology—can contribute to research in music listening through a greater understanding of multimodal imagery in such listening.

Keywords: music therapy, guided imagery and music, multimodality, neuroaffective theory, altered states of consciousness
