2021 Musica, Colori, Emozioni: 10 Playlist Cromatiche

Le nostre emozioni sono fondamentali per stabilire il modo con cui noi rispondiamo alle sollecitazioni esterne. Tra quest’ultime giocano un ruolo determinante la musica ed i colori, in particolare ciascuno di noi può intonare un colore o una particolare sfumatura ad una singola canzone. Perché? Probabilmente perché sia i colori, che le canzoni, riescono a connettersi ai nostri stati d’animo più intimi: rabbia, tristezza, dolore, gioia, serenità…

Quando ascoltiamo la musica, dunque, è naturale “vedere” un determinato colore; alcuni studi scientifici hanno, addirittura, dimostrato che queste associazioni sono indipendenti dalle complesse sovrastrutture imposte dalla società moderna, dalle coordinate geografiche, dall’etnia, dai costumi, dalle usanze o dalla religione, ma sono ubicate ad un livello più profondo ed istintivo del nostro inconscio.

Senza addentrarci nei meandri di questi studi, in un territorio nel quale statistica, matematica, musica, biologia, neurologia e psicologia congiungono i loro sforzi, abbiamo provato a stilare una serie di playlist, ciascuna delle quali è associata ad uno specifico colore: nero, bianco, rosso, blu, rosa, verde, violetto, spettrale e metallico. Sorvolando sui meccanismi con cui i nostri neuroni codificano le varie stimolazioni sensoriali e sulle svariate modalità con cui si instaura quella relazione crossmodale tra la musica e i colori, ci siamo semplicemente lasciati ispirare dalle emozioni che suscitavano i diversi brani, oltre che, ovviamente, dai nostri ricordi passati, dalle nostre aspettative future e dalle nostre esperienze personali, tentando, il più possibile, di far emergere quell’intimo, antico e prezioso legame tra la percezione visiva e quella uditiva, tra il mondo della musica e quello dei colori.

Buon ascolto. Buona visione.
