Composition as a unique entity

by Susana Alarcon


Gestalt psychology maintains that the human perceives entities “in their entirety before perceiving their individual parts, suggesting the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” (Wikipedia)

Though is more focused on the visual completion of patterns, and how the eye recognizes the object and not details first, it is also about the interaction of our senses in the definition and perception of something. We tend to order our experience in the most logic and simple way. Why bother in asking infinite questions separating our variables in the senses and analyzing them in order to get the accurate and probably complicated response?

For most humans, not sound designers, the answer is… you don’t bother! it is easier to believe than to ask if it is real. Let brain complete the cicle.
