ABSTRACT
According to Zbikowski, metaphor seems to be an inescapable part of musical descriptions. What makes music special is its relationship to language. Hamilton observes that music is a human activity grounded in the body and bodily movement and interfused with human life. Vickhoff claims that music seems to move us emotionally even if there is no such obvious reason. Feature imprinting is important for our ability to recognize voices and instrumental sounds.
