Within this volume, music has been connected with physical movement, other communicative media, various technologies, and other domains of human experience or endeavor. Such connections could be seen to implicate a cognitive capacity that contributes much to the distinctive character of human thought processes: analogy. At its core, analogy involves drawing correlations between elements and relationships from two different domains as part of a process of reasoning about the organization or features of one of the domains. Thus knowledge about physical gestures could be used to structure the understanding of a conjunct sequence of musical events, leading to the notion of a “musical gesture.”
