    Abstract: The article addresses the phenomenon of pain and the music therapeutic treatment of pain, with consideration of the involved
    functional and representational brain functions and its connected epistemological problems. A 2-fold description of the therapeutic
    process is presented whereby a transmodal process linking affective–sensory pain with audio music experience and an assignment
    of musical symbols to pain lead to a modification of the pain experience. A theory of aesthetic perception serves as the
    framework and as a platform for interdisciplinary discussion.

    Keywords: music-imaginative pain treatment, cross-modal processes, symbolic representation, theory of aesthetic perception
