Psycoanalytic Groups and Musical Groups: an Investigation on the Possible Commmon Prospects


This paper would like to bridge two realities, music and group psychoanalysis and investigate some of the dynamics that occur in groups of musicians, with the purpose of analyzing them, having as reference schools of thought that studied group psychoanalysis. Key-words are groupal associative chains related with the free improvisations in the jam sessions, mirror effect and resonance, analyzed in two places, the sessions atmosphere or back tone, the medium and the effects of the primitive mentality and of the basic assumptions, comparing W.R. Bion and C. Neri’s description with music atmosphere.
